  • old craftsman bandsaw

    I am searching for tires for an OLD (50+) Crafstman 12" bandsaw.
    Originally had rubber tires. Wheel is actually 12 1/4" x 3/4"
    Should I use urethane? Where to obtain? I've found lots of 7/8" wide but 3/4" seems rare.

    most likely you will have to figure out a way of making them work, if you can't to find the exact replacement, did you check sears parts?
    read the below PDF, looks like some good info, on trimming and gluing and even rounding them if needed,
