F’in band saw. Trying to resaw cedar for a couple bat houses and blew the upper tire. Lower one feels very loose as well.

Then the lower bearing that keeps the blade from moving back, the screw won’t come out. F’in Phillips heads. I hate those things. The bearing was nearly locked up and already had a blade groove cut deep across the face (hence the need to replace the bearing).


I think I feel better now. Thanks for letting me vent. No back to your regularly scheduled program…

Eric, When I threw a tire on my 17” BS, Patron suggested gluing it with automotive GOOP. I did, thinking it might get me through the weekend. It has now been over a year and I still have not needed to install the new urethane tires! That Goop is some good stuff.
