    Bandsaw tires

    I need to replace the tires on my 14" Delta bandsaw. Is there any difference in tire brands? Should I just look for the best price or is there a significant difference in quality between brands?

    I only use rubber tires, but you have to crown those tires.

    Get the cheapest orange urethane tires you can find. No difference in the cheaper priced Hartville orange vs the Carter blue. I would go to Hartville - pretty sure they have a woodnet discount.

    I've gotten mine from Sulphur Grove, on eBay. Their eBay handle is "ohioblademan" (I think).

    You can also call them. They have been great to deal with.

    These guys weld them themselves, so they can make any size.

    Rubber tires works fine but urethane tires last longer and doesn't need gluing. I got band saw tires with http://www.bandsawparts.com/ultra_bl...hane_tires.cfm .

    Try Suffolk Machine. Their tires work well and they will get you the correct ones for your saw.

    I have old woodworking machines. The members of OWWM strongly recommended the rubber tires for the Powermatic 143, so I went with rubber. They do need gluing and it's messy.

    I've got a set of Sulphur Groves on my bandsaw. Probably put them on somewhere in the mid nineties. Got a set hanging on the clamp rack to go on other band saw when I get (take) time to put it back together.
