The manufacturer wants £100+ for a new wheel without the tyre. I'm hoping I could DIY it for a lot less than that.
I've seen suggestions to just layer up some ply, use a circle cutter jig on my tablesaw or router table then fit a tyre and balance it - but I'm wary of fitting the bearings successfully into the centre.
Is there a better way to do it? Are there any good UK suppliers for bandsaw wheels and/or tyres, or a recommended DIY approach to making them?
The wheels are 12" diameter, tyres are about an inch wide, should be ~1/4" thick.
