Well you didn't mention a model or even mfg. so all I can give you is a general method of changing a blade on a std bandsaw

1st: locate the table cutouts , there are sometimes two of these , slide them out to leave a gap in table
2nd open top and bottom blade cover , swing back (this is a good time to clean this out)
3rd locate the blade tension knob this is always on the opposite side you stand on to use saw(reason is next)
4th slowly back off tension of saw blade , till blade falls off top or bottom wheel Or both
5th carefully feed the old blade out of saw guides top and bottom till blade comes out free, careful even old blades can still cut you
6th remove new blade from package (caution !!! spring steel) do not k-##-k the blade get it till teeth of blade are all on one side, might take a bit of fenniest to do so
7th slide new blade into saw guides(teeth out towards operator position) , top and bottom , I use a bit of sticky tape to hold mine there (it's 179 inches long) position the new blade to top and bottom pulleys (again sticky tape helps a lot)
8th slowly tighten the tension pulley (top) till the blade stays there all by itself No tape , remove all tape now , hard to do later
9th slowly turn the pulleys over by hand as you tension the blade , this produces a even tension and your less likely to break the new blade , continue till blade rides in center of both pulleys or it's pretty tight , I flick it with my fingernail if it rings (like a guitar) then its tight enough (I know the sound well)
10th ck all your saw guides for proper clearance , I use a piece of note paper , u should just be able to get it in along the side , but blade cant be aloud to twist at all , there are usually three guides on both top and bottom
11th close all covers up replace table cutout and run saw if it walks the blade off then ck your pulley alignments and the tires on rim of them ,tires do go bad every 500 hours or so keep a set on hand 4 fast swap out

Makita slide compound- Saw Blade. LS0714

It seems as though the original blade was fitted without a spacer. These usually come with any new blade. It is simply a washer (usually aluminium) that fits in the hole of the saw blade and reduces the hole diameter down to the size of the flange on your saw. This is common practice. Never try and centre a blade without the correct size hole to flange size. Very dangerous. These washes are really cheap and can be obtained from most hardware stores. Usually in an assortment of different outside and inside diameters to suit any circumstance. Hope this helps, cheers Bob.

Blade assembly broke, the part that fits into the motor and turns the blades.

Dear Vicki,
Fixya does not have any parts for anything.
We are a problem solving service, we answer questions only.
Please tell us your make, model, and serial; number for your blender.
Also, type the manufacturer & model information into your computer search engine, and see who sells part for you in Canada.
Know that some blenders cannot be repaired, unless they are quite old, and then sometimes the parts are no longer available.
God bless your efforts.
