I have the Ridgid Bandsaw and I've had to replace the Tensioning screw and nut twice because of the tensioning screw stripping and preventing me from loosening or tightening the blade. I definitely don't overtighten. I was taught that the tension on a bandsaw blade should always be released when not in use. This tendency to strip on the tensioning screw is very irritating. I suspect either a design flaw or a poorly made part. What can Ridgid do about this?
