Glenn, I'll try the method sometime. Really should have before now. But, my (non)method has been to simply turn the tension until the blade feels taught enough. Nuttin' scientific. I don't get drift or have other problems that I read about here. Maybe just dumb lucky, I dunno. I don't always remember to raise the de-tension lever between uses. Does not seem to make any difference. For the record, mine is a Grizzly 14" G0555.
