My Father in law gave me an older black and decker 10 inch band saw (model 9443). It has 3 tires. I know, I know, the thoughts on black and decker tools is less than stellar. Still, I’ve never owned a band saw so this is only a beginning for me. I’m only using it for small curves and the like.
Onto my question: The tires are dry rotted and two of them fell off. I was wondering about how to go about replacing them. I have done internet searches and the carter band saw tires come up. The only size they have for 10 inch bandsaws is 7/8. The tire that came off of the band saw is 3/8 wide (the wheel itself is 6 inches in diameter). So I was wondering where I would find tires for this little guy. I can’t seem to find new tires for this saw. I really don’t know where to go about looking. I’ve checked all the big names, Rockler, woodcraft, and the like.
If you have some ideas where to look (if I even can still get them) it would be much appreciated.
Thanks in advance
