You are in good company. When I first set up my bandsaw, it was a frustrating experience. Not knowing anything about bandsaws or adjustments made it all the more frustrating. I'm still undecided about the tension thing. Release or not release? Some experts say you must. Others say not necessary. Hang in there. My bandsaw is probably my most used 'go to' tool for small cutting. I'd be lost without it.
