Detailed Description

Bandsaw Tensioning Crank Heavy Duty

The Heavy Duty Bandsaw Tensioning Crank replaces the tension adjusting rod and knob on most 14" bandsaws with a 5" cast iron, chrome plated hand wheel crank. The large diameter handwheel, coupled with the 3/8" acme threaded rod makes quick work of lowering and raising the wheel on your bandsaw when changing blades. The massive bronze replacement nut helps eliminate play in the threaded rod.

Please note that we do not have a list of the bandsaw models that the Heavy Duty Crank will fit. Compare the dimensions below against your current tensioner to decide if the Heavy Duty Crank will fit your bandsaw. This crank was designed for band saws without quick-release levers, though it may fit some with Q/R levers. Compare the particulars below with the rod and nut currently on your saw.

  • Overall length of rod – 12"
  • Threaded section of rod – 4" long
  • Rod diameter – 3/8"
  • Thread size – 3/8" acme thread
  • End of rod is ground to a point
  • 3/8" acme threaded nut is a square nut measuring 23/32" x 23/32" x 19/32" thick

Our customers inform us this crank fits fine on their Jet JWBS-12 12" bandsaws.
