How to Install your Band Saw Blade

Unplug the saw, then loosen the tension on the upper wheel. With all the blade guides backed off, slip the new blade around the wheels and then tension it. When you have tensioned the blade enough to keep it on the wheels, track it by turning the upper wheel with one hand while adjusting the tilt of the wheel's axis with the other hand. The blade should ride in the middle of the rim. Next, adjust the blade guides; first the thrust bearings:upper and lower, then the left had sideguides. Use a square to make sure you are not pushing the blade out of line and place a piece of white paper between the blade
guide and the blade to allow for clearance.Never track the blade with the motor running and the cover open
