Blade belt- How tight? Should Pulley/Blade spin after off?

    My blade belt seems to be a little loose, there seems to be a little bit of slack when its engaged- should I tighten it or leave it. It has fallen off of the pulley.

    Also, one of my spindles has been spinning after I disengage it. The other one stops fairly quickly. It seems like its attributed to the blet being loose.

    Any ideas?
