Sounds like the manufacturer may have used threads inappropriate
to the application in order to shave costs. Going to an ACME
or similar robust thread may solve the problem, but considering
the cost and perhaps machining to do the conversion, you may
want to buy a quick release tension mechanism and see if you
can modify it and/or the saw to make it work. I know I could
figure it out, but the confidence comes from fiddling with a lot
of old machinery over the years.
