    I release the blade tension even between projects on the same day.

        I agree, you should take the tension off, even between projects. It will save on the saw as well as the blade. It's just a good idea. Like me taking a nap. It's good for me. HA

          Thanks for the replies. And here I was thinking that maybe I was being overly cautious by releasing the tension when I finished using the saw at the end of the day. Turns out this is just routine standard operating procedure for many here. Good to know.

              You should release the tension on your blades. For a very good reason. I didn't do it once and went on a trip that lasted ten days and when I got back I had to cut off two inches off the blade that was in it so it would be 5 inches long again. No really, that happen. Ahh, you don't believe me, would I tell a story like that if it was not true. Quiet Mike. not asking you.

              When a work lifts your spirits and inspires bold and noble thoughts in you, do not look for any other standard to judge by: the work is good, the product of a master craftsman.

                Well, Chuck, I went on a 45 day trip and my # 7 blade was down to a #2/0 and I had to cut off 5", so I left it in the saw another week and got two blades out of the deal. Sweet.

                    Glad things worked out.

                    I just updated my older PC. The hard drive was 500 gb and eight years old. I cloned it to a one TB SSD (solid state drive). Put the cloned drive in and worked perfectly with all my old programs. The computer is now much faster. The new drive was about $100 and...

                    Once upon a time ( in the 70's) i attempted bow hunting. I believe the bow had a 45 pound draw. I quickly learned that it was not for me. It takes lot of hard work and practice just to be fair at it. Good is a whole different level. I hope you do better than I did.

                    So glad you are back up and running. You will be awed by the speed of your new drive, fresh drivers, and cleaned up files. Spring housecleaning!
