A little Problem

I was cutting some pieces of ash today with my band saw when the blade came forword and started grinding on part of the guides so i shut it off and tried adjusting the top wheel tilt screw and the whole tensioning plate shatered.

I will . I bought the saw in 2008 but i bought the lifetime warrenty but i would have to drive over an hour to get the part so i ordered one for $20 and a total of 32 with shipping. First money ive put into it so its not too bad.

I agree with Roy. I would be calling the manufacturer right away and describing what happened. Another tool becoming dangerous due to faulty manufacturing and outsourcing parts maybe? Call.

There is a very fine line between a "hobby" and a "mental illness"

Those parts look awfully thin. I have an older Delta 14" and those same parts are much thicker. Is that a Delta or a clone?
