Hopefully there are some 'oldtimers' who might remember:
The problem is an imported bandsaw with wheels approximately six (6)
inches in diameter, and I cannot find replacement tires.
About ready to trash it, but decided one last try to get it back in
shape so I pulled the wheels off because the bearings were pretty
noisy. On two of the wheels "Shopmaster" is cast on a spoke.
All of my seaches for Shopmaster ended with another tool company
(delta?) but no spare parts, etc.
I would like to purchase actual replacements if available. Does anyone
have a source?
If not available, is Pliobone a suitable adhesive to bond a homemade
'tire' to the wheels? Would the rubber from an inner tube work?
Also, would a simple but joint be satisfactory, or should one taper
the ends, or what?
Any suggestions would be appreciated.
Thanks in advance,
