How do you keep the blade on the wheel? Mine keeps coming off. It is a Rockwell product. The blade came off while I was using it and I can put it back on both wheels but as soon as I turn it on, the blade slips off. s

Hi,
Sounds like it could be quite a few different things. My suggestion is to go to you tube and look at Band Saw setup. I haved viewed the one from the wood whisper and it covers set up in detail, there are also other videos that may help.

Sounds like a setup problem - wheels,tires,guides,and even blade tension can cause this.

Does the blade track true when turning top wheel by hand?(unplugged of course)
Is the blade tension correct?
Are the tires in good shape?
Are the guides and back up bearings set correctly?

I hope this will get you headed in the right direction.

I have an old rockwell 14" bandsaw and am having


Follow these instructions, but before adjusting the guides see the link below.
It sounds like you have not correctly adjusted the guide blocks that ride on either side of the blade, both above and below the table. These small rectangular blocks can be adjusted by loosening the allen set screw in the guide that holds them in place. They should be pressed in against the blade lightly, without deflecting the path of the blade out of square to the table. (You may first have to sand the ends of the guide blocks square if they are grooved from use. Use a belt sander and a pair of vise grips to hold the blocks while you square them off.) Anyway, the guide blocks should allow the blade to run smoothly, (you might hear a tick tick of the weld passing through the blocks), but will not allow the blade to deflect from side to side. Correctly adjusted, they keep the blade aligned with the bearing behind it, and prevent the problem you describe.
Only after you have correctly adjusted these guides just behind the set of the teeth, and the blade is turning freely by hand when you spin the upper wheel, do you bring the bearings in to kiss the back edge of the blade. Make sure the bearings are lubed to spin freely with a little bearing lube or wd40, then bring both the uppper and lower bearings in until they almost spin or just barely spin when the blade is turned by hand. When you exert a little pressure during cutting they will then hold the blade in place between the guide blocks, so the blocks don't wear the teeth away. Please see this link for detailed instructions I gave another user. (possibly also here) They will apply to your saw as well. If you have any questions or further probelms, write back. You may also wish to check here for a pdf manual for your saw.(check both rockwell and delta).
If you take some care to properly tune the saw, you will get much beter cuts and the saw will be a joy to use.

I have a 12" Craftsman Band saw and the blade keeps coming off. What adjustments do i have to make to put on a new blade and keep it on?


The wheels have to be true at 180 degrees facing each other. Use a metal rafter square if needed to align the trueness of these wheels. If one is angled out ward the blade does come off the wheel

I need a manual for an old Sears Band Saw Model #534.01120


Does it look like this? Unfortunately, they don't have a manual that I could find. But you might like to post your request in the forums there, as they get some traffic from aficionados of old tools with wile and know how.
It might help you also to google Dunlap & PowerKing for the manual.
As far as tuning it up goes...
Check each of the wheels' "bearings" to begin with, to ensure they are running smoothly and as true as possible, without end play or wobble. Then use straightedges and flat jointed boards to line up the three pulleys as much in a single flat plane as possible, by shifting shims, etc. (It may behoove you to remove the table out of the picture to begin with, if possible, so you can get the wheels lined up well with one another, then replace the table once the blade will track.)
The adjustments on a three wheel system can be a little more delicate and temperamental than on a standard 14" bandsaw, so be moderate in your tracking adjustments, and crank the wheels by hand to begin with as you work the tension up on the blade, checking constantly to keep the blade running as close to the center of all three tires as possible. Don't worry about the blade guides at all until you get the blade running on the wheels well. Then move the backed off guide blocks and backing bearings into place. They are meant, after all, to keep the blade from deflecting, not to force it into position.
That's my quick advice for how to tune it up.
Good luck. It looks like a beaut!

I hope this information allows you to resolve this issue. If you need further assistance, please post back with a comment to this thread.

Bandsaw blade keeps coming off Rexon BS 10


Unplug the saw and take the covers off the wheels. See if any of them show excessive end play or deflections when gently racking them from side to side. You may need to shim the wheels. Ideally, you want them all to track in the same plane, and you can check this with a straightedge.
There should be a tracking thumbscrew locked with a wing nut or some such on the back of the upper wheel. Put the blade on so it rides in the center of the tire, (move the guides out of the way if need be until you get the blade to track correctly), and turn the wheel by hand to see how the blade rides. That way you can make adjustments before it pops all the way off. By moving the bolt on the back of that upper wheel in or out you adjust the pitch of that wheel and change the way the blade tracks...
After you get the blade tracking smoothly under tension, you can move the guides back into position to support your blade during cuts.

Yes there is a tilt adjustment on the top wheel used to set the tracking of the blade, a small amount of adjustment will change tracking dramatically

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.
