The movers did a bad job moving my band saw. the tensioner assembly has fallen apart. Anybody know a band saw repair person in the San Francisco area? It’s a 17” Griz.

That should be easy to re assemble. Do you have a picture of the parts to make sure nothing is missing?
It is just a screw that draws up the upper wheel to put pull the blade tight. Some have a lever to put up the final tension or to release the tension when not in use
I wonder why they would have to foll with the tensioner to move the saw??
