    Before doing anything, check the length of the blade. You maybe have the wrong length. It may not tracked and tensioned properly. Double check the adjustments. Are the tires new? Tires should not be worn out. Guides must be positioned properly too. You may want to check your manual. It can help to figure things out. And oh , try reading this blog :http://bandsawblog.com/replacing-the-ban... . And you can check more informative blogs there. Hope I helped you.

SOURCE: hi i have a craftman bench 10 inch bandsaw that has blade drif

The problem could be one of two things. The tires could be worn or glazed with rosin. Try cleaning the tires with mineral spirits to remove the build-up. The other possibility is that the pulleys are out of alignment. To check this, put a straight edge across the face of the lower pulley and see if squares with the upper pulley, if it doesn't, loosen the set screw on the upper pulley and adjust accordingly

SOURCE: I am changing the saw blade on 12 inch Craftsman bandsaw

Go to: Searspartsdirect.com and enter the complete model number minus the decimal point. This will bring you a series of parts drawings and possibly an owner's manual. Generally, adjustment is provided for the upper wheel only--use hand power to check the tracking performance. Good luck!

I cant seem to find the blade size for an older pro tech bandsaw model 3101. Is there a newer model that is compatible?


There should be enough adjustment on the tensioner to allow you to use any size blade that will be close to the original size. Set the tensioner/adjuster to the mid position measure the size of the blade, and look for one close to that size.

Where do I get a blade for Pro Tek 10" model 3104


I buy mine on sawblade.com ; they are cutting blade stock to any length. Your bandsaw is using 62" right? Try to use a 1/4" 0.025 6 TPI flex back carbon blade for cutting non ferrous metals.

Clark 6x4 bandsaw


there should be an adjustment knob on the back that changes the angle of the top wheel and this will center the blade so it stays on. I do this by jogging the saw on and off while I adjust it. hope this helps you
