Tensioning Mechanisms in a Vertical Bandsaw
In this video you are going to learn about the different parts of the tensioning mechanisms in a vertical bandsaw.
First, this machine is installed with a ratchet rod instead of the original threaded rod, making adjustments quick and easy.
Inside of the knob is a ratchet mechanism that has a tiny flip lever and reverses the drive direction similar to a socket wrench. Once the nut and rod are installed, loosening or tightening your blade is fast and simple.
Note how the machine in the video is also upgraded with a quick release mechanism. This is easy to install in just a minute and all the installation hardware is provided. This product is made with high quality components and solid steel construction. The quick release can be used on 1/8″ to 3/4″ blades and relieves tension quickly to prolong blade life and saw life as well as to prevent damaging the tire.
The tensioning mechanism is a convenience tool for woodworkers who need fast access to their blade.
