I actually like my 75-year-old bandsaw, however altering the blade is
one other matter. I used to hold it on the highest wheel solely to have
it fall off each time I started to work it into place between
the blade guides and over the underside wheel. Then I spotted that
a big spring clamp might be a 3rd hand. It holds the blade in
place on the highest wheel and makes the remainder of the job a cinch.
