+1 dull blade(s)?

+1 AndyBB comments on pivot bracket in tension assembly.

Check the location of blade on the top wheel. If should be same on front and back, relative to the table.
Have seen where the casting holding the pivot pin on tensioner broke and the wheel was tilted slightly. It should be same distance to sheet metal cover on both side. The bracket can rest on the lower housing, which makes the failed pivot bracket hard to see; until you use enough tension to break the bracket all they way.

Best Luck!
