Check them if they have what you need.

You will really need to get a new blade guide assembly. It’s going to be difficult to find 613 original parts today, so to go for aftermarket replacement parts is the best option. Try this site: **LINK**. They have different aftermarket replacement parts for different brands

Thread: broken bandsaw blades

There is nothing wrong with the saw. The problem lies on the blade and the blade speed. Make sure you’re following the right speed for the kind of material you’re cutting. And make sure you’re using the right blade for the right material. Change the blade you’re using. BTW, follow blade break in procedure every time you run a new band saw blade. I think the procedure is already posted above.

This could be an old thread but this site for blades will still be relevant. I found this site a good source for quality band saw blades:

Thank you for the link you posted George. They’re very informative. But nothing beats experience. Remember the saying “experience is the best teacher”? Newbies become experts because of experience. Just like what Bruce posted, experts’ advice are reliable source for answers. I hope experience will teach me how to become a fine expert.
Thread: Bandsaw blade tension

That would be what you call de-tensioning. I read also in many forum sites that not `de-tensioning’ the blade after use may cause it to snap. From then on, I always de-tension the band saw blade and the wheels.. I think you will find it to be a 50-50 proposition whether people do it or not? To me, it seems like a pretty easy process to save the blade even if it not always necessary according “to the book”..

Claude’s right. This will avoid tires from having flat spots. Imagine your son sitting on a basketball without changing sides for 10 minutes or more. It will make the ball deformed. The same thing happens if you leave the tension even if it’s not in use.

I am new to this forum but has been to woodworking for quite a while. Check your blade, maybe it is not the right size for your band saw.
