Step 1: Tension Lever

Looking at the tool, there is a tension lever on the left side which releases blade tension. After the lever is turned, one of the bandsaw wheels moves inward allowing the blade to be removed. Slide the blade off both wheels and remove. Make sure the tool is unplugged before touching the blade.

Step 2: Install New Blade

Buy a new blade and install on tool. After blade is slid on the wheels, tighten the tension lever. I made this at Tech Shop.
