SOURCE: Ryobi Bandsaw model EBW4023L will not cut straight

I do a lot of resawing with mine and I have found that a 3/8" wide blade gives me nice straight cuts.

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

The blade won't stay on even though I have it on properly it comes right off when I turn it on


I have no experience of portable bandsaws but do have some experience of workshop bandsaws.

One wheel is generally movable in order to "steer" the blade and careful adjustment is needed with the blade guides retracted until the blade runs full on the wheels. The blade guides are then brought back to prevent the pressure against the work from pushing the blade off the wheels.

I have a new JET JWBS-10OS. I bought it rather than a scroll saw because it is more versatile, but I do need it for scroll work. I purchased a 1/8 inch blade and had trouble with the installation. The...


Hi,

I'm not a Jet tech, just a bandsaw owner.
First, when you are adjusting the tracking knob, are you turning the wheel by hand for several revolutions to be sure which way it is running before making another adjustment? After tweaking it, you should turn it a bit to let it settle in. Also, be sure to tighten the adjustment knob down before turning it on.
The bearing guides have more adjustment places than just the finger adjusters. On mine, a Steel City, I can move the entire guide holders back and forth, and can also move the entire guide set up back and forth. The guides are there to keep your blade from having too much movement while cutting. They are not supposed to actually touch the blade though. I adjust mine with a dollar bill between the guide and blade. If you have one guide that isn't exactly perfect, don't worry about it. The blade guard will also keep the blade from wandering.
I've never used my bandsaw for scrolling work, so am not familiar with the 1/8 inch blade. Should work if you can get your tire adjusted correctly.

Good luck.

I hope this helps. If it does, I'd appreciate a vote or comment. Thanks,

Handie Andie

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!

Top wheel part broke off


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.

Upper wheel on a model 28-682 bandsaw. How do you adjust it.


With saw unpluged!!!!! open top wheel gaurd.Spin wheel by hand while moving the adjuster knob on back of the machine. As you turn both at the same time the blade will trac either the front or back of the wheel. Move the knob (while spinning the wheel) until the blade is tracking in the middle of the tire. (rubber strip around the wheel)
