Tension meter

Correct band tension is essential for straight cut and prolonged blade life.

As a general rule of thumb, the higher end of the tension range should be used when the guide arms are further apart and the lower end of the range when the arms are closer together.

The below tension ranges are supplied as guide for normal average cutting conditions. Insufficient blade tension can affect the cutting efficiency of the blade.
