SOURCE: after reassembly blade will not cut wood, does not maintain suffient tension despite being correctly inserted

It sounds like the blade is not going through the guides properly if the blade is being pushed away from the wood.

Your blade is facing and moving the right direction, I am assuming.

SOURCE: Saw has lost cutting power

Open the side cover and inspect the blade path and blade tension. Rotate the blade by hand looking for interference at any point. Make sure the drive pulley is not slipping on the shaft and that the belt is not loose or badly worn. Make sure the two large drums that carry the blade turn easily (dry bearing?). Does the motor slow down? Are the drum rim surfaces (rubber) in good shape? If the tension device is at limit, but not tightening the blade, the blade may be too long.

Check and see if one of the guides is out of alignment or if the blade is worn. Either one can cause the problem since you already checked the tension and guides. If the guides are worn they won't hold the blade true.

How do I adjust the saw blade tension?


There should be a knob at the top of the upper wheel case. You twist this in one direction to tighten and the other to loosen. There should be an indicator for the amount of tension, which you vary for different blade sizes and material. You also will see a knob for adjusting the tilt of the upper wheel that allows you to adjust for tracking of the blade.
Please be careful, band saws are very good at cutting anything. Never get your hands close to the blade when it is running.

How do you tension remington electric chain saw


The most common would likely be by releasing the chain/blade assembly lock nuts (likely to be two) on the outside of and at the the drive end of the chain, or by first removing a cover over this part of the chain assembly to access these nuts. Next, there could be a tensioner screw assembly located between the inner side of the the saw blade and the motor or possibly at the back of the chain/blade assembly. Screwing this screw in the appropriate direction will tension the blade. After all slack is taken up on the chain (without over-tightening or stressing the chain!), re-tighten the two previously loosened lock nuts that secure the blade in place and replace the cover, if removed. This would most likely be the process for fitting a new chain as well!

Dose not cut in a straight line wonders


First question: What are you cutting? Are you cutting wood? If you're using fence, I need you to make adjustments on it . The nature of the band saw is to drift either left or right being parallel with the band saw fence. Is the blade tension too tight or insufficient? Check your manual for correct tension or you can just see in the tension gauge on your saw. Please this blog on how to check the correct blade tension . What is your feed and speed rate? Make sure the you're not feeding the wood too slow or too fast. Are you using new blade? Your blade is may be dull or low quality. I purchased my blades on www.sawblade.com . Their Haltbar 201 Series works great on general wood cutting.
Last question, have you taken up time to tune up your saw? See this blog for your reference.

After one cut the saw blade comes Loose.


The tension of the blade probably needs to be adjusted. In general there should be about an eight of an inch of clearance between the chain and bar when the chain is pulled away from the bar but you should check the manual to see what gap is recommended. If the chain is blunt and overheating, it can expand and become loose rapidly. The slack in a chain should be taken up in any case after a period of cutting to avoid an if the chain comes off the bar.The procedure for adjusting the tension is to loosen the nuts holding the bar, adjust the tension and then tighten the nuts securely.

HOW DO YOU CHANGE THE BLADE AND TIGHTEN IT UP THE BAND BLADE CAME OFF & I DONT KNOW HOW TO GET IT BACK ON


Unplug it. Open the cover(s). Find the tensioning knob - this is usually right on top, and it is raises the top wheel (or ins some cases an idler wheel) - thereby tightening the blade. Lower the top wheel by turning the tensioning knob a few turn counter-clockwise. This will give you enough slack to re-install the blade. Wear leather gloves and reinstall the blade. Tighten the tensioning knob a bit. Turn the wheel by hand a little to see that the blade tracks OK. Tighten it a bit more. The correct amount of tension pretty much has to be determined by trial and error. If the blade comes off, or bends too much while you try to cut, or cuts poorly, then it's too loose. If you over-tighten it you can break the blade or prematurely wear out your machine. Close the cover and plug it back in. You can adjust the tension with the cover closed, and you can even tighten it while the saw is running. But I wouldn't loosen it while the saw is running.

Saw wont cut streight ,cannot control cutting along a line


Is there an ajustment for the tension on the blade? If the tension is too low on the blade or if the blade is no longer sharp it will cause it to twist and cut crooked.

Cutting straight


The tension on the blade. the position of the guide rollers, and the condition of the blade are all important to get a straight cut. You might want to try lowering the guide rollers down close to the wood being cut. good luck.
