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

I was going suggest the same guy that Lloren suggested. I bought tires from him for a old Sears bandsaw that I refurbished that was 10 inches and the guy had them quick shipping and good prices.

You might be able to find the material the tires are made of, cut it to size and glue them on. I’ve done that on a very large band saw. Worked just fine. The important thing is to make a very tight seem. I don’t know where the tire material came from. My employer of that time had it on hand.

Are the old tires rubber? It’s a good time for you now to get urethane tires. They more durable than rubber.

ebay, craiglist and even Amazon has band saw tires. Remeber to use Urethane band saw tires because they lasts longer and durable than traditional rubber tires.
