Band saw is going in reverse how to i fix that

The motor is AC (alternating current) and only runs in one direction. Therefore, the only way to reverse the saw blade direction is to flip the position of the motor 180 degrees. The teeth of the blade should be pointing down and face to the left when you are standing in front of the saw. The blade should travel down into the table so the blade pushes the work into the table. I hope this helps since it sounds like the blade may be installed incorrectly.

Blade will not stay on cutting mark, even a straight line. My blade looks like a quarter inch on a nine inch band saw.

clean dust off the wheels, center the blade get it tracking and tension it so it has a medium high to (wide blade) high pitch (narrow blade) twang like a guitar sting when plucked with the saw turned off

Saw blade jumpes off at motor pulley on horizontal band saw

It is probably not tracking. you need to back off the guides, get the blade to track in the center of the tire by hand. Then torque it up a bit till it twangs, Then pull the guides up the blade and just touch it, don't push it at all, the bearings too. This should track and not jump off. If it does, then one of your wheels is out of whack, check them with a straight edge with the blade set. See if they are in line. One of the bearings could be bad. Check it out.

8 inch delta band saw that cant keep the band in place in use

The rubber bands on the metal wheels are called tires, and if they are cracked, they may very well be crowned and causing the problem with the band coming off.

To test, remove the back guide (as opposed to the side guides) on the top and bottom guide sets (above and below the table.). Put a blade on, and see if it will stay on. If it doesn't, replace the tires. If it does, reinstall the back guides and make sure they do not touch the back of the blade when the saw is running. There should by about 1/32" between the guide and the blade.

Blade comes off wheel on horizontal saw have a wilton 7040 horizontal saw. after cutting about 1/2 thrru a piece of metal the blade sticks and then stars comming off the right wheel and starts cutting into...

if its a new blade, make sure that it is the proper length for the saw, sometimes aftermarket blades look like they are the right size but the difference of a few mm can cause the blade to track. if its an old blade, it could just be dull enough that it is binding on the material you are cutting and this draws the blade off the wheels. even if the blade isnt that old or seems sharp, if you have a brand new blade handy that would be the easiest thing to try.

your manual will have instructions on how to adjust the blade guide bearings. if this is a new saw, it SHOULD be set properly and be working from the factory but they may still need to be adjusted. an older saw obviously may have shifted a bit from normal usage. if you dont have a manual one can be downloaded from the wilton tools website.

before adjusting the guides, though, check to see that the bearings spin freely. if they do not spin smoothly with minimum pressure, they need to be replaced. they also should be replaced if they spin VERY freely because this is also an indication that they are pretty worn and may actually be binding up under pressure.

My blade cut one 12mm round bar and broke tried anothertoo two blades they broke

Ok, I am gonna give you the secret. When they make band saw blades for metalwork,(assuming the blade is spec'd right for the application, the cutting teeth are not completely hardened for heavy use. Simply put, you have to break the blade in. This can be done in one of two ways. You can either reduce the speed of the band OR you can use half of the infeed force into the work piece. In other words, half speed or half feed for about 20-30 mins of cutting time and the teeth actually harden the rest of the way. This is not an accident. As a rep for a bandsaw company, this was the abolute #1 problem I got complaints about in the field. Of course, if you don't know the secret, you have to buy more blades from them. Convenient,huh? Try it my way and lemme know how it turns out.
