  • Bandsaw Tensioner

    I found this tensioner to be a great addition to my Ridgid bandsaw. Good price at $14.99 but only for a couple of days until it goes back to $25.

    nice find. i made something like that for my old craftsman BS and when i bought my new BS it had the quick release lever on it so i was good there. its definitely something every BS should have as standard equipment in my opinion, but few of the smaller bandsaws do (14" and under).
    "When we build let us think we build forever. Let it not be for present delight nor for present use alone. Let it be such work that our descendants will thank us for, and let us think, as we lay stone upon stone, that a time is to come when these stones will be held sacred because our hands have touched them, and that men will say, as they look upon the labor and wrought substance of them, "See! This our fathers did for us."
    John Ruskin (1819 - 1900)

      Bob - I agree. My new band saw has a quick release and I'll never own another band saw w/o one.
