I may have lucked out... but don't know for sure yet as the saw is not
readily available to me for inspection. I came across a reference that said
that the manufacturer of the saw in question crowned the wheels on at least
some of their saws. If that is true of this saw I'm good to go. I also
found references to crowning tires using a disk sander with the wheel
rotated against it using an angled jig... I could use my father's Shopsmith
for that purpose. Failing the former I'll call Carter before trying the
Many BS tires are long strips of rubber glued onto the wheels. They have to
be shaped after being glued. IIRC I saw something about attaching a piece
of sand paper onto a block of wood and clamping that block of wood so that
it rubs the tire. Then you spin the wheel by hand and gradually apply more
pressure to the block of wood until the desired shape is obtained.
