jet 1236-broken belts

>I've been going through a lot of drive belts,particularly when I run the lathe at low speed. The pulley bearing moves freely on its shaft-that's not the problem. It just seems that the tension is too much at low speed. Can this be adjusted? Any suggestions (other than not running at low speed)? Thanks
