I recently acquired a 14" bandsaw and would like to replace the tires. I've
done a search on Google, but I'd like to have your comments about the
different ones. Also, any suggestions on good quality blades would be
Take a look at wood slicer blades at Highland Hdwe at
http://www.tools-for-woodworking.com/index.asp or at Suffolk Machinery
at http://www.suffolkmachinery.com /. Both offer excellent blades and
tires of all sizes.
I just received my blades and tires from Suffolk today. My BS is a newer
(2002) Bridgewood 15". I'm hoping that I won't need the clamps, prying
tools, and bad words!!
To the OP - I haven't used the Timberwolf blades yet, but everything I've
heard here is that they are amoung the best available. They were sure nice
to deal with on the phone - very helpful. My saw is a little "off size", so
they custom made the blades and tires to fit - no extra charge.
I'll do a short post after I get the tires and new blade on, and get it in
Please do try Lee Valley Viking blades I can assure that they are just as good
if not better than Suffork. They cost no more than Timberwolf and rest assure
you will never regret it. Everyone here trust Lere Valley?
Suffork is not always that nice, I have three blades sitting on my shelf
gathering dusts. I am also expecting flame from Timberwolf lover here, they hate
me for telling the truth and think I have axe to grind. Anyone who disagree with
me please sent me you axes, I'll grind it for free, including shipping and
handling both directions.
Preheating by soaking for required time really softened the urethane
tires I got from them and if memory serves the only tool used was the
shaft of a screwdriver to get last portion of tire over the wheel
edge. Easier than expected.
