    You need to unlock the blade tensor in order to install the blade back.

Hi,
The blade is bad and you need to try or get a new blade.
Even a very small twist on kink will ruin the blade.
Also then kine up the saw the best you can before you start it...
turn the blade slowly by hand and then adjust as needed as you see which way the blade is going.
This can be a long and tedious process til you get it close enough to actually run it and make final small adjustments.

How to adjust the blade on skil bandsaw 3385 that will not stay on


This is one of most common problems with Skil saws. Make sure that you set the correct tension and track the blade properly. It could also be problem on the blade specially on the weld. I suggest you visit bandsawblog.com for helpful band saw techniques and sawblade.com . I get my blades from them.

Can you use a 59 1/2 in. blade on a 9in ryobi bandsaw.


I think 59 1/2 inch blade will still fit on your bench top band saw. But try to give a call you supplier for assistance .

I just bought a Skil Band Saw and it wants to cut to the left (as you look at it) it was being used to cut 16 gauge steel.I just changed the blade.


You probably just need to track the blade, pull all the guides back away from the blade and free wheel it by hand, tilt the blade into the center of the tires, if it doesn't center on both, one of them is off. When it centers, torque it up a little, then adjust the guides to the blade, don't push the blade out, just barely touch it, then it should track and cut straight. Good luck. Does this machine have a transmission for metal cutting? Or just one speed?

I broke the lower blade guide - a die cast piece that holds the blade guide bearings. It appears that Skil does not carry replacement parts


All I could find out is that your skil bandsaw is made by the Bosch Bench tool co in Mount Prospect, Il. The owners manual from skil shows the part you need as #6 lower blade guide, and Lowes does handle this line of Skil. I would suggest contacying Lowes or the store you bought this from and getting the consumer help phone number from them. They have to have this part available as I am seeing a lot of these units refurbished, so someone has the parts to them. Hope this helps and good luck. Marvin
