With the help of this forum I was able to fix the tension issues my new (used) bandsaw was having. I have hit another wall that I could use some advice on. The blade is now rubbing against the return blade guard once I have applied tension to it. I have spent a while adjusting the tracking / tension with no luck.
Here is a video of what I am talking about, the first few seconds show the blade rubbing as it comes off the bottom wheel and the end of the video shows the blade passing though the guard with no problem as it exits the guard and goes onto the top wheel: http://youtu.be/lZ-ehGZcdcM
I have a few theories but I am new at this so they probably dont hold water:
1. Blade guard is warped and needs to be replaces (it appears straight so this one is a long shot)
Thanks again for all of the help.
