Topic tags/keywords: question bandsaw

Just want to say that I’m a new poster to the forum, but have been lurking for quite awhile. Just from browsing the threads, everyone seems to be pretty knowledgeable. Looking forward to hear some valued feedback!

I recently purchased a used Grizzly 14” band saw model 1019Z. The BS uses non-standard blades (98”) and it seems as though parts are pretty difficult to come by. The tires need to be replaced and I’d like to find urethane tires that will fit. The only place that I’ve found that advertises a specific fit for the 1019Z is ebay. I’d like to avoid that route if possible. Other places advertise a fit for “most” 14” saws and Delta/Jet “clones”. I’m not sure if my BS fits this category.

A few questions. Does anyone own this model and where do you typically go for parts? And the wheels measure 15” in diameter. Is this unique to this model or do all 14” BS’s have 15” wheels?

Thanks again for the help.

Why the issue with Ebay? That is the most efficient way to get band saw tires on your doorstep.

If in doubt, post a question to the seller and ask if the tires will fit your specific wheel diameter. I have used Ebay for band saw tires and was very satisfied with the product. They even came with an installation tool and detailed instructions.

I’ve had issues with EBay in the past and am skeptical with some of the items being sold. There’s also the issue of whether the item is quality made. I’m not totally against it, I’d just prefer not to use EBay. If I don’t see any positive feedback from anyone hear, I’ll likely have to use EBay.

Have you called Grizzly and asked if they have tires? If not they might have a source.

Thanks for the idea bbc57ci and for the link kdc68. I had already reviewed their parts website and noticed that they described the replacement tires as “rubber”. I figured that they would be the type that have to be glued in place like the original tires that are on it already. I went ahead and called customer service and they confirmed that their replacement tires are urethane and are stretch to fit. I’ve got a set on order already. Thanks for all the replies guys.
