Here we go. I looked online for this saw, and it looks to me like most others. First, be sure you blade is not stretched from over-tightening or worn out. Either of those can cause your problem. Then, take your blade off and visually align the wheels , or even figure out a way to measure the wheels to see if they align. Then install the blade and turn it by hand to see if it is tracking true. You may need to do this for a while. One it turns true by hand (make the adjustments of the top wheel to cause it to be straight), then you will need to set the guides to support the blade in it's correct position. The should be guides above and below the table, probably both behind the blade and to the sides of the blade. As many as 6 adjustments, on some machines.
Usually the guides should barely touch the blade to hold it true.
Be blessed.

SOURCE: Porta Band saw blade jumps off

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.

SOURCE: I have a Craftsman 10 inch band saw. The blade

the blade tension shaft in the rear top of the saw should also have a tracking adjustment knob that tilts the top wheel. Open the top guard and spin the top wheel by hand and adjust the tracking knob until the blade atays on. Better unplug the saw until you get this done, then you can power the saw back up and fine tune the tracking while running until it is perfect. hope this helps you.

Do you still need the manual? I have that model (now broken) with manual. I can copy it for you (just a few pages in English).

Band saw blade keeps coming off


Set up your band saw properly. There are several reason why band saw blade keeps on coming off on the wheels: loose/wear tire, improper guide adjustment, incorrect tension, over feeding wood stock or the problem could be on the blade itself. Try to change your blade, I got my band saw blades on sawblade.com . I suggest you watch band saw tune up tutorial videos on youtube. Hope that helps.

Delta 28-160 band saw 3 wheel, blade keeps coming off


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.

28-276 Delta bandsaw blade keeps coming off?


Unplug the machine, gain access to the two wheels. On the back of the machine you should have a tilt adjustment knob. Manually turn the wheels in the direction of the cut and at the same turn adjust the tilt knob on the back of the machine. This should solve the problem.

I have a Delta 28-185 bandsaw. I can't find my owners manual and the blade keeps coming off.


if the blade is running to lose it will throw its self off if its been done up realy tight that could twist the frame causing the blade to run out of true try changing the blade first as it may be the blade thats twisted if it still throws its self off check the bearings in the rollers for were then you can adjust the top roller so its running true

Cuts in circles,,even with new blade


The saw needs to have the blade guides adjusted properly. There are 2 sets of them . One above the table and one below. They may be solid pieces of steel or they may be sealed ball bearings They are the things that move in toward the blades sides to keep it tracking in a straight line. They need to come in toward the blade as close as possible without touching it. I set mine with a piece of paper as a spacer. set both sets like this and your saw should cut straight. Hope this helps you
