It’s essential that there is enough tension on any bandsaw or bandknife blade to prevent it from flexing during the cut. Our bandsaw blade tension gauge is, therefore, an essential tool to ensure that your blade is set up accurately.

Check your bandsaw blade tension
If you’ve ever suffered poor cutting performance from your bandsaw or bandknife blades, it’s highly likely not to be the blade at fault. It’s more often than not a question of tension – too much or too little.
If you don’t set a blade up correctly, no matter how sharp the teeth are or how high quality the steel is, the blade will simply perform badly.
The only true way to measure tension accurately is with a tension gauge.
