Bandsaw wheels soften the impact of the blade on the wheel and workpiece, securing the components and preventing unnecessary wear. They play a crucial role in metal and woodcutting manufacturing and continuously using worn tires can lead to a variety of production issues, from inaccuracies to safety hazards. Learn about four signs that your bandsaw’s tires need replacement for better performance.

The bandsaw is a very complex machine and it requires a lot of precision to operate properly. The tires are critical to the operation of the machine and must be in good condition at all times. They are not expensive, so it is important to replace them when they are showing signs of wearing. This will help you maintain a quality cut and keep your bandsaw running smoothly.

Tires come in a variety of styles and sizes and it is important to know what you’re looking for when selecting a new set of tires for your saw. Ideally, you want to find a pair of tires that fit the saw perfectly and are made from high-quality materials to ensure long-lasting use. Choosing the right tires for your saw will depend on a number of factors, including how often you use the saw and what type of cuts you make.

The 1412 is an industrial beast with man-size cast iron wheels that are well-balanced to support a heavy resaw blade with no wobble. The frame is welded steel for serious rigidity, minimizing flexing which can cause vibration and inconsistent cuts. The upper and lower guides have ceramic surfaced control points for 10 point accuracy. Changing the blade is a breeze with convenient lever action releases that engage solidly to whatever angle you select.

This band saw wheels at resawing and curves are no problem either with Laguna guides that steer the blade through the arc with minimal deflection. A single lever on the top of the saw handles both blade tensioning and release – I like that both functions are handled at the same location.

The only drawback is that I’ve had to spend quite a bit of time adjusting the upper and lower guide settings, and I’d have preferred to see a hinged door system that would enable the adjustments to be performed from the operator’s position. It is important to back off the guides above and below table before installing a blade so that nothing impedes the tracking adjustment as the upper wheel’s alignment can change significantly during the process.
