I am attempting to put a saw blade on my Delta Band Saw Model 28-190. I can not seem to get it to work. When I turn the wheel to see if it is tracking okay it comes off the top wheel. Any help anyone can give will be greatly appreciated. I’m sure someone out there has had this problem. Ron

On the back of the machine there is a tracking adjustment. It is located on the tension assembly and will have a thumb screw and a wing nut. With the blade on, slowly turn the upper wheel and adjust the thumb screw until the blade stays on. Slightly tension the blade and keep turning the wheel. You may need to adjust the tracking more than once. If the blade you are replacing is wider than the previous blade the thrust bearings on the guides may also need to be moved back to allow clearance. After the blade is tracking well and tensioned re-adjust the thrust bearings

If your other blades track correctly, the new blade may not have been brazed squarely when the ends were joined together during manufacture. Is it a name brand blade or Chinese junk from harbor freight?
