Kent introduces Shawn for a tutorial on replacing a bandsaw wheel tire.
- Disconnect the power and remove the wheel from the bandsaw, seeking assistance if needed.
- Gently pry the old tire away from the wheel, being careful not to damage the surface.
- Wear gloves for protection during the process.
- Two methods for installing the new tire are recommended:
- Method 1: Place the wheel on the floor, secure it with your foot, and pull the tire onto the wheel from both sides, keeping it tight and preventing slipping.
- Method 2: Use cable ties or seat clamps with a block of wood to secure the tire on opposite sides of the wheel, working on one half at a time.
- Use a flat-head screwdriver to seat and even out the tire around the wheel.
- Reinstall the wheel on the bandsaw and conduct a test run.
- Check for any unusual vibrations, noises, or blade tracking issues.
- If everything is satisfactory, the process is complete.
- Enjoy using the bandsaw with the new tire.
