The Morse band saw tension gage quickly measures blade tension while the band saw blade is on the machine. The tension gage checks for under-tension and over-tensioned conditions. Features include a durable cast and a powder coated body with calibrated gage and a storage box with protective foam inserts. The gage measures in pounds per square inch as well as kilograms per square centimeter. Proper tensioning band saw blades are designed to optimize the blade life, resulting in precise cutting and reduces the opportunity for machine damage because of over-tensioning.
