Question about Saws
Model 724 Rockwell Porta Band saw has a problem keeping the cutting blade on. It walks off the saw during operation. Tried new blade - same problem. Reversed rubber drive belts - same problem. I don't see a tracking adjustment on the saw.
I had this problem on a used model 725 that I bought. Apparently the rubber tires on the drive wheels develop a bit of a memory after sitting for a while with tension on the blade. I tried cleaning the tires to no avail. Then I removed both tires, flipped them over and re-installed. Still not fixed. Then I put only one back to the original position and the problem was solved. Other than the frustration of trying several times, I was out nothing and I got quite proficient at taking the blade in and out. The saw has worked fine ever since. I hope this simple (and free) solution works for you.

Go to AceToolRepair.com and in the upper right hand corner type in your model number. The tensioning bar is position 103 under the front wheel. As a thought are both axles tight? You can in a pinch put a small shim under the back (towards the inside of tool) the flange of the axle. Look at the breakdown first though. Let me know
