Good point. Also, if a blade too large needing too much tension was used the tension bracket on some bandsaws has been known to bend from the stress. The 14" Delta and Jet were prone to this. Ain't nutt'n gonna work right then! Fortunately for me, Itura Design had stronger replacement brackets and springs.

Perhaps Mark will provide some more information.
