Thsbks for the reply. Yes, I did. I kept incrementally making it tighter until the blade broke. I just can t figure out why it wouldn t track in the center.

Sorry to hear the blade broke. Usually people have a tendency to set the blade tension too low and those blade tension guides on band saws are usually not accurate and are on the low side is why I asked if you tried setting the tension a little higher. I didn’t think you were going to keep cranking it up until it was like a piano string.
