Hey guys, my step father has a delta band saw he paid a 100 bucks for years ago. It was one of those buy the table saw, chop saw, and band saw for 299$. So the ruber whatever they are called that go around the wheels that the blade rides on have gone bad. You can buy replacements for 40 bucks EACH, after shipping that’s what he paid for it. Does anyone know or have ever made there own, it cant be that hard I’m going to do it but I thought someone might give me some of their experience and knowledge on the subject.

What size saw? I think the urethane tires I put on my 14” BS were like $22 for a pair from Hartville (through Amazon).

Cheers,
Brad

Last time I had to change the tires I paid $20 for both of them from sears.

Word of advice the easiest way to get rubber tires on is to get a hunk of plywood that is larger than the wheel and use it as a jig. put a dowel in the plywood for the center of the wheel to sit on this will keep it in place. Then insert more dowels around the wheel. then you can stretch the tire around the wheel a little at a time by stretching it over each dowel. once you have the tire all the way around remove all but one of the dowels. Use the last dowel to help center the tire.
