I’m tuning up an older Jet bandsaw and trying to remove the old glue and tire residue from the wheels. I tried the Duginske method of wetting a sock with mineral spirits and soaking with mediocre results. Wondered if any of you out there have a quick and effective method of cleaning things up without damage to the aluminum wheels and minimizing scraping? I’m hoping to get this thing going without ruining something. Thanks!

Get a wire brush that will run in your electric drill and let it do the work

Acetone, be careful it’s flammable.
