I recently bought a Laguna 14 twelve Band Saw for Christmas. I’m having trouble with releasing the tension using both the quick-release tension blade lever and the blade tension handle. You see, when I tension the blade using the quick-release tension lever, it tensions the blade nice and tight which isn’t a problem. The problem is when I deactivate the quick-release blade tension lever to change the blade, the upper wheel stays in the same position without lowering still applying tension to the blade. It is only until i rotate the blade tension handle a few times that I’m able to then push down on the wheel to release the tension and remove the blade from the machine. I know that pushing down on the upper wheel to get the blade off isn’t good for the machine, so that’s why i have stopped using it until i can resolve this issue.
Can somebody pleeeease help me with this???
