Having sold my tablesaw to my dad and not having 220 (for my new tablesaw) in my garage yet, I’m at a standstill. Project wise that is. So I figured this would be a good time to tinker around with my bandsaw. I bought it in late November and haven’t used it all that much.
I have some mdf set aside to stiffen up the stand. And I replaced the belt a couple months ago. Took the old one into Advance and had the boy match it. That took quite a bit of shake out.
Next up is the tires. I don’t know how she knew, but my beautiful wife bought me a set from Rockler for Christmas. So this evening the mood struck.
Just after I get the blade off it hits me that this would be the perfect time to balance the wheels. Well, it hit me because that’s what the Ridgid manual said.
So I was wondering. Anyone else go through this? I’m not going to drill holes in the wheels. So what is the best way to do this? Lead tape? Epoxy some weights to the wheel? And where is the best place to get the tape or weights?
Also, I’m planning on buying a blade in the future. Recomendations are welcome.
