    Timberwolf has a 3/4" blade that is only .025" thick, so it works very well on a 14" wheel. Most 3/4" blades are .034" thick and it is hard to get proper tension o a 14" wheel with them. I tried a 3/4" blade from another company that is only .025" think, but they...

    Spent yesterday cleaning up my shop - (once very two years!) and could not find my 3/4 inch BS wood slicer. Came in and discovered that I ordered and received a 1/2 inch wood slicer two years ago. (I keep the records on my computer.) I know I had a 3/4 inch at one time but finally figured out that was...

    In my opinion, a 3/4" blade on a 14" bandsaw with a riser is at the edge of capability. Depending on the blade, getting sufficient tension on the blade will be not easy. It will require about twice as much the 3/8" blade.

    i have a 16" saw and measured the tension...

    Here is the band saw tension release lever that I got from Carter, within a year after buying my saw. -- http://www.carterproducts.com/band-s...quick-releaser

    Like Hank says - if you aren't changing blades sizes it's pretty much a set & forget gadget. If you're the type that doesn't...

    Here is the link that changed the way I set up and tune my band saw:

    About 30 minutes but worth it.

    Yes, it does on mine - plenty of room in the release to remove and replace the belt. 95% of my cutting is with 3/8" blades, so I rarely have to re-set the knob. When I start cutting those logs down, I will have to adjust it as I will be using a 3/4 inch blade....

    Thank you Hank great write up. When you release the blade tension lever is the blade loose enough to remove the blade? The knob is a real pain....

    I bought the tension release lever as an add-on and added it to my G0555 with the riser block. I see that the 0555x has it installed. That's good. Mine came with an aluminum insert - 6 or 7 years ago. I am one who likes to set the blade tracking, and I have a link to a YouTube somewhere that deals with...

    That's how our Jet works as well. It's simple to tension and release the tension. I can change a blade in a few minutes....

    I agree about the blade tension system. I have a lever on the back of my Delta that when released removes all tension and then I can easily remove the blade.
