Default RBI 220-3, Quick blade change attachment

Hope this question is in the right place. I have a RBI 220-3 scroll saw, bought used. Wanted to do some fret work but taking the blade loose and reattaching was really a pain. Is there an attachment made for this saw that will make attaching the blade easier? I definitely got the wrong saw if there is not some kind of a fix. Thanks for the help.

Anthony's link is a good one.
I have the G4 and the original blade clamps were fine but I replaced the upper clamp with the retrofit from Poszgai anyway. I should have done it years ago, it takes a couple of seconds to clamp the top of the blade. I did not change my lower clamp because I like having an assortment of preloaded clamps ready to go. I am not familiar with the clamps on your model but if it is the barrel type then I would swap out the top and bottom.

Note on the Pozsgai part says the saw needs a front tension release and mine is at the back of the saw. So I don't think that retro fit part will work? Is that correct?

The blade tension adjustment is at the back of my saw but I do have a quick release up front. That whole front assembly gets replaced. I would send him an e-mail and see what he says.
