      HF 4X6 bandsaw

      Hi outback. my old blade and even a new one has been slipping off the power wheel now matter how I adjust the tilt of the other wheel.
      What did you face the plate with that doesn't ruin the blade teeth that prevents saw from comming off ?

        Toolman;

        The plate that keeps the blade on the drive wheel is nothing more that 1/4" 6061 aluminum. Been on the saw for almost 10 years.

        My theory is the blades jump off the drive wheels when the blade stalls while sawing. Therefore, the blade is not moving (that much) when it reaches the aluminum plate. The aluminum plate is something I tried and it worked. Someday I'll need to replace it.

        Another thing I did. I installed a heavy duty die spring to the blade tensioning knob to keep the blade tension constant during temperature changes. This also helped with the blade stalling out while sawing.
