    Be very, very sure that the rear sprocket is mounted square to the wheel and centered to the hub. If there is any wobble to the sprocket at it turns that will guaranteed throw the chain. Definitely fix the tensioner wheel so it can turn. It is after all a wheel and not a rubbing block. Also be darned sure that there is noooo way it can slip on the bicycle frame and rotate into the rear wheel's spokes.

    throwing chain

    Check the cheap rear sprocket. As stated above it must be true to the wheel no wobble and centered on the axel. do not count on the center hole being true.
    CHECK THAT THE SPROCKET THEETH HAVE A TAPER ON THE TIPS. IF NOT DUPLICATE THE TAPER ON A STANDARD SPROCKET.
    Throwing a chain CAN be dangerous.

    Personally I use an old polyurethane skate board wheel for my idler wheel and it is great. Quiet and wide.
