Bandsaw Tire Question
#5
Hello All,

I blew out the bottom tire on my bandsaw so I bought two new ones as they came together in the same package. The top tire seems to be ok. My guess is I should switch out both tires to avoid any issues but does only changing out the bottom tire make sense? The two new tires and the existing tires are both the same color (caution orange) and side by side, they appear to be be the same.

Thanks

It's possible the crown on the new tires are slightly different than the old ones. I don't think you'd want the crown profile to different on the bottom than it is on the top...it could make tracking a little tricky. That said, maybe it's perfectly OK to just use one. But I'd change both anyway...it won't be that much more work.
I started with absolutely nothing. Now, thanks to years of hard work, careful planning, and perseverance, I find I still have most of it left.

Try the one. If tracking problems occur, change the other one

I changed just the top one on a 14" about 3 mo.s ago. No problems yet. They were both new about 5yr.s ago.
