Wood-Mizer support is quite good. Give Will a call. He's pretty knowledgeable on the mills.

   I am sure WM can help. I'd have first thought the wire link had slipped off but if that was the case it would never engage. I once couldn't get the tensioner arm to engage then I remembered to put a band back on and it worked fine then. ::)
