I have a Jet JSL-12BS driving me crazy. The blade after about 5 minutes starts chunking rubber at me. I have broke it down ,cleaned it up even fell asleep with the manual gripped in my hands. I’m fixing to chunk it into a lake nearby. I replaced the wheel tires also. Is it me or is this model possessed .

There are too many variables to address without more info.
Alignment, blade itself, bearings frozen/worn loose, guides, motor attachments. Just a few possibilities.
Help us help you before ya go crazy.
Operators and technicians are standing by to provide high quality, low dollar info. :)

As Bill said, it could be any number of issues, it is unusual but not unheard of. My guesses are that the blade is too tight, the set is wrong on the teeth, the blade has a bad weld, the bearings wobble, the posts ar bent, the wheels have a flat memory in them and need to be replaced, the throat is too narrow, the case is warped. I mean I could do this all day.

Where is the “rubber” coming from? Tires, drive belt, table insert?

Thanks for the advice ,I was extremely frustrated but was calmed down by some sleep.A cabinet maker told me to go to ITURRA.COM , some guy has advice on taming a band saw. Rubber is coming from the tires slipping off the rim,on top. They were brand new.

The tires are moving/slipping on the wheel? Options: replace with proper sized urethane tires OR glue the tires to the wheel with automotive GOOP brand adhesive. I’ve used the GOOP as a temporary fix to get me through a weekend and it has lasted for several years!
