I’ve had a 14” Jet bandsaw for years. I recently put a 1/2” Timberwolf blade on, and went through the complete alignment procedure and cleaned the tires. Everything has been great since then and the saw has been cutting better than ever.
I don’t use the saw that much, so I releave the blade tension after I’m done using it. So, today I tensioned the belt and fired her up to makes some cuts for a project I’m doing for my youngest daughter.
Blang! Clang! Grind! Rub, rub, rub!
It threw and shredded the tire off the top wheel.
So I need a recommendation for where to get a good price on a replacement.
And I’m wondering what went wrong.
Should I have tensioned the blade while rotating? I’ve never done it that way b4.
