I recently received a 10” delta bandsaw (it’s a 3 wheel model) and I need new tires for it. Has anyone used URETHANE BANDSAW TIRES? How do they preform …. good or bad? Also does anyone have a good website to find old owners manuals (preferably free)? It’s a delta 28-160 and I need to find out what size blades it can use (size and width range).

thanks for all your help

My jet came equipped with rubber tires and when one blew apart I replaced them with urethane. It was an easy job, and the urethane don’t need to be glued in place like rubber. Seem smoother to me also.

I picked up the same model (28-160) at a yard sale for $5. I was able to get a PDF of the manual from DeWalt:

http://servicenet.dewalt.com/Products/Detail?productNumber=28-160#":http://servicenet.dewalt.com/Products/Detail?productNumber=28-160#

The download link for the instruction manual is in the upper right of the window under Downloads.

I recently ordered replacement tires (not urethane, though) from ereplacementparts.com

I’ve done a few test cuts and the new tires do seem to help quite a bit, particularly with the blade tracking.

Enjoy the new toy!

My 14” grizzly have urethane tires on it’s wheels and they do great! Didn’t use glue while I install them. And they last long too. I got them from this site: http://bandsawparts.com. BTW, they gave me these direct lines to call: (201)450-9817 ; (201)450-9818.

I downloaded online when I needed replacement for my lost grizzly manual at this site: http://bandsawmanuals.com. Got them for free!
