SOURCE: Grizzly bandsaw cannot fit blade

I lowered the spacer (on the threaded rod) and got enough drop in the upper wheel to fit the blade.

SOURCE: When making a straight cut with my bandsaw, the blade will

Before tuning it up, loosen the guides and wheels away and square the table to the tensioned blade. Then follow these steps in order:

  1. First, adjust the upper wheel so the blade is tracking at the center or just to the front of center of the wheel tire. (You can see this with the cover removed, and adjust it with the nut/wing nut in the back).
  2. Now, make sure the blade guides are adjusted so they don't deflect the blade to either side (when looked at from the front), so they contact the blade just behind the gullet of the teeth, but not against the hooked teeth themselves, and are just tight enough to allow the blade to run freely (including the weld). (If your guides are worn and out of flat, you may wish to dress them on a sander before adjusting them against the blade.) Adjust the guides both above and below the table. At this point, ensure that the guide bar moves up and down easily and locks into position without torqueing the guides against the blade.
  3. Finally, adjust the bearings behind the blade, so they just kiss it, and turn freely when you revolve the bandsaw wheel. They will support the back of the blade when pressure is applied against it during a cut, and help immensely to keep the blade tracking straight.
At this point, check the cut by trying to follow a straght line penciled on a board. Some blades will naturally tend to veer slightly on a diagonal, depending on how they are sharpened, and you may have to adjust your fence to compensate for this "drift".
But if you follow the steps outlined above, and have a good sharp blade to begin with, you should be able to split a line.
If you follow these tips and they prove helpful, please let us know your problem is solved. Otherwise, give us a little more detail and someone will be happy to follow up.

SOURCE: I do not know how to change the blade on a dewalt

I'm not familiar with that particular band saw but I have had a few different band saws and they all pretty much work the same.

Unplug the saw and remove the top and bottom wheel guards.

Look behind the top wheel and you should see a large bolt standing vertically it may have a knob on it or it may not, look on the bolt to see if it has stop nuts if so loosen them then turn this knob so as to lower the wheel enough so you can remove the old blade.

Clean the rubber tires on both wheels and install the band with the teeth facing down.

Now the tricky part, adjust the top wheel so that it is firmly against the band and turn the wheel slowly by hand (be sure the saw is unplugged) if the band "walks" one way or another, you will have to find the set screw or set screws that adjust the tilt of the wheel, adjust these until the band runs true on the wheel. When it does, tighten the wheel a litte more and turn again slowly by hand repeat this until the band runs true and it is very tight on the wheel, Put the guards back on before you turn on the power. You should be good to go.

Jammed my 6230 bandsaw during a cut and now it won't start. Are their fuses I can replace?


Go to Milwaukee Tool website and try to check if you can download a manual or electrical diagram there. You can call or email them. Check the motor capacitor.
Are you using an old or new band saw blade? If it's old/dull, try different blade. If it's new, the weld might be really bad. Old Blade and Bad weld can cause the blade to jump off. I purchased band saw blades on www.sawblade.com . Great quality blades; they have porta band blades. Call them.

Please be sure that your put correct tension on the blade. Check the blade guides and check if the blade is tracking
properly. Make sure the tires are clean. If they're well worn out, change them . You may try to install new blades too.

I have a 12" Sears - Craftsman - Band Saw and the blade keeps coming off. How do I install a new blade and keep it on?


Two potential issues here:

a.) You probably need to align your bandsaw wheels. Here's a link to a craftsman 12" bandsaw manual. Assuming you have model 113243310, 113243311, 113243300, or a similar model, read over page 12-14 "Installing the blade". Specifically, look at section 10 about adjusting the tracking.

Having the blade guides set properly is important too. A thrust bearing (the one up top, behind the blade) that's set too far forward can push the blade off the wheels too.

b.) If it's flat out too loose and you can't get it tight, the blade might be too long. It's worth double checking your manual to confirm you are supposed to be using an 80" blade and double checking the blade package to make sure you actually have an 80" blade.
