Thank you for question on the band saw tension and tracking mechanism seized up.

I can understand having problems with the adjusted seized because of its age and non-use for so long. This may just take some time with the PB blaster to do its job.

It would certainly help if you could get the upper wheel off to get to the adjuster mechanism easier.

After you have removed the retaining ring then you may have to tap on the wheel axle as you pull outward on the wheel. If that does not help it will eventually come loose as the PB blaster works its way in to help with removal.

I am sorry that I do not have any better suggestions other that you could get a wheel puller to help with getting the wheel off and then once you have the wheel off you will be able to gain better access to the adjuster mechanism.

Please let me know how it turns out.

Sam A.

You may want to try a penetrating fluid by the name Of "Zepreserve" manufactured by Zep Manufacturing. I have had great luck with this product in the past and find it works where PB Blaster won't even begin to free up the siezed part. As a matter of fact I just got an old Craftsman Bandsaw with the same problem as yours and it loosened it up in a matter of minutes. Good luck with your project. Dick

Thank you for the update Dick. I had never heard of this product before but if it is as good as you say it is I will have to see if I can find a can and try it on a stuck wheel to an axle of a roto-tiller transmission. I hope he is able to see if that product will work better on the seized band saw parts. Thank you again Sam A.

Thank you for your question.

I can understand you wanting to know why the insert does not fit like the original.

Is there a physical difference between the old insert and the new?

I looked at the parts information on the insert and it does not show it to be a substitute but since this in a lake 70's early 80's band saw I would not be surprised if somewhere during that time until know it may have changed in design and that may be the reason for it not fitting.

Is it that the insert does not fit flush with the table top?

If that is the case I think I would remove some of the material on the insert that is causing this rather than use shims for the table.

I have not heard about the wrench problem before.

Some of those had a soft spring tension that you push in to engage but the parts list on this model does not support that theory.

Some of these old saws did use brass shims to level the table but not used to make the insert fit better.

I think you could add some shims if that is what it will take to get the table frame from interfering with the insert.

I am sorry that I do not have anymore information on the old band saw, but details on this band saw from that long ago are difficult to acquire.

I hope you are able to resolve this issue.

If I can be of help please reply.

Thank you for using Manage My Life.
