The blade isn't tracking right. There should be an adjustment knob on the
back of the top wheel, to align the blade on to the middle of the wheel.
This adjustment is in addition to the tensioning knob. And make sure you
have all the blade guides adjusted properly.

Gentle persons -
I bought a floor model Jet 14 inch bandsaw from Lowe's. I downloaded the
manual off the website and followed the directions for setting up the
saw. When I turn it on, the blade comes off within seconds, I have tried
more tension and less tension. I have tightened all the bolts. I checked
that the tires are aligned on the wheels.
What other things can I try, is there a good book on the subject.
Basically ---- HELP!!!!
I want to thank you all in advance, I enjoy my reading of this group and
the help you provide. I have archived dozens of threads on topics that I
refer to when I work in the shop.
