Startup and blade tension

Avoid startup while the bandsaw blade is released

It is advised to release the blade tension while a bandsaw is not used.

There is however an important risk to forget that the blade is released and a startup of the machine with the blade released can lead to damages to the wheel tires, or to the blade, and as a consequence can lead to compromise the user security.

Here is the solution I adopted for this issue :

Released blade :

Blade under tension :

It is a simple sign, afixed to a magnet, that I move whenever I release or set tension to the blade.

The sign recalls that the blade is released, and covers the switch of the machine, so that I cannot miss it.

Here is the pdf of the sign I have designed, it is available in the download section :
