Colleagues: I have an older USA-made Delta 14” band saw with an aftermarket Iturra tension spring. I do not use the saw much, and I completely released the spring tension after use. May need to do some ripping and possible re-sawing for a project and I thought about firing up the band saw with new blade. The current ½” blade is getting dull.
In the blade box, I found a several new ½” blades and a new ¾” blade. I have heard and read it is next to impossible to fully tension a ¾” blade on a 14” saw. Any truth to this? Thanks for any insight.
