Leaving a bandsaw blade under permanent tension is a good way to ensure its early demise. Releasing tension between work sessions prevents premature blade fatigue; it also reduces wear to a saw's wheel bearings, tires, and tension spring.

Retrofitted to most 14" bandsaws (including Delta, Jet, General, Sears, Ridgid and Grizzly) in about an hour, this mechanism uses a simple rack and pinion to lower and raise the upper wheel, releasing or tensioning the blade with the flip of a lever.

It also has an intermediate, partially engaged position to make alignment easier during blade changes. Robust all-steel construction with a large, easily gripped phenolic knob.

Includes all hardware and complete instructions.

Made in USA.
