The Carter Cobra Coil band saw tension spring replacement provides greater durability, superior strength and is a direct replacement for the spring in most 14" saws. The Cobra Coil gives you the ability to properly tension larger blades to give your 14" saw superior tracking over the stock spring that comes with most saws. This in turn allows you to make straighter more precise cuts.
- Will produce over 10,000 PSI of blade tension
- Fits Delta, Jet , General, Rigid, Reliant and most imported 14" bandsaws

Does not fit Powermatic 141
After waiting 10 days for the spring to arrive, turns out it DOES NOT fit older Powermatic 141 (Gumby style). The inside diameter is way to small to fit over the adjuster screw. It would have been very helpful if the description included dimensions for this product. Beside that, it seems like a good quality spring.
Better resawing immediately
As usual the spring was trickier to install than the directions indicated (but NOT the fault of the spring) because of the design of my 20 year old Delta bandsaw. Immediately I noticed better tension on the blade and improved resawing.
Great upgrade/replacement part
I replaced the old, stock coil spring in my 14" Jet with this when I installed the Carter Quick Release. Both were a worthwhile upgrade.
This is a great replacement for the factory spring on my Ridgid bandsaw. The only downside is that it throws off the scale so I have to adjust the tension and mark a new scale. But the quality and tension this spring provides is worth it.
Needed it and they had it!
Much better than the original Spring that came with my Delta Band Saw.
GREAT UPGRADE TO BAND SAW
