Re: i have a jet band saw- 14 mw-- and the adjusting...
The best and possibly the only place would be from Jet. They are still in production and I've seen numerous sights for parts on the web. Just type in Jet band saw parts and see what happens. Good luck.

Setting up a band saw correctly is an important set in order to get ... Woodworking - How to Adjust for Band Saw Blade Drift -Workshop ...
if blade stops tunring then it's one of two adjustments need to be made , 1st blade tension this is set with hand screw on left side of top part ,2nd the speed of cut is too great , adjust the speed control for the hydraulic clyinder that holds top carrage to bottom , just behind the middle of unit to alllow for slower blade desent , these pistons do go bad ive replaced mine before ,
You should check your manual. There's a blade tension handle on my bandsaw, which is adjusted every time I need to change tension or change blade. There ways how to check the correct tension, you can pluck the blade like a string on a guitar and if you hear music not like sound, tension is good. Or you can follow the suggestion blade tension on your saw. or you may also use tension gauge.
To adjust the blade guides , you have to loosen the lock nut ( it's normal on the upper part of the guide kit, outside part). Move the guide carrrier until both bearings are approximately 1/16" behind the gullets of the blade. Release the adjusting screws to set both bearing guides to within 1/32" of saw blade by turning the micro-adjusting knob. You can then lock the bearing guide in position once the correct adjustment is reached. This works on 14" band saw. This is an instruction from the manual.
The most common is wheel misaligment. The top wheel has an adjusting screw or the equivalent somewhere, and you can turn that to align the blade to the center of the wheels.
Second most common is guide problems. There are some guides that are supposed to hold the blade "just right" above and maybe below the table where you are cutting These must be set to support the blade in it's correct position as you are cutting through the material you are cutting.
3rd problem is a saw blade that has lost it's tension from being
" worn out ".
Sounds like something's bent. You might need some replacement parts. 14" band saws, regardless of brand, are generally made with Chinese parts that are knockoff Delta-Rockwell parts from many years ago. Grizzly sells most of these parts at reasonable prices. Check the exploded views of their saws to see if the parts match. Craftsman parts are expensive, even though they're the same part.
Sounds like your tracking screw needs adjustment, located right beside the knob used for tightening after adjusting the tension on the blade. Allen wrench required. Turning right pushes out and turning left pulls it in. A little is a lot when adjusting this screw. Always turn the blade in the same direction as the cut while adjusting.
My jet bandsaw did same thing only fix was new tires .Tires are supposed to be tite on wheel .get wood dowels between tire and wheel and roll new tire onto wheel. If desperate could glue on with weather strip adhesive.put bandsaw blade on both tires spin wheels with power off till blade is running in center of wheel by adjusting top wheel in or out. When done adjust blade guides to blade and bearings to back of blade .This is top and bottom of cutting area
I suspect the part you need is 150086 "Upper Wheel Shaft". You can confirm this by checking the exploded diagram for your bandsaw which can be downloaded at http://content.wmhtoolgroup.com/manuals/708115K_man.pdf.
See page 25 for exploded diagram showing wheel shafts, bearings, etc..
It might be worth checking with JET about warranty since I believe that band saw has a 5 year warranty. You can check here for a service center near you.
