  • BS1400 Throwing Wheel Rubber

    HELP

    My saw keeps throwing the TOP rubber off, this justed started happeneing, at a blade change, and continues even though I tried several blades....1/8" up to 1/4"....

    what else I've tried:

    Blade tension.....up and down no difference
    Alignment......will center but still throws to front, inche forward throws to rear and vice versa

    Align wheels with straight edge...

    this is with proper seetings on blocks and bearing and alos released.

    This saw over 1.5 years old but with probably less than 20-30 hours......


    Please Help and any suggestions most welcomed

    Try these belts, they are urethane and the price is the lowest. I had the same problem and this solved it and the saw has less vibration.

      If you've checked all the alignment, I wouldn't waste any more time with the tire. It's likely had some sort of deformity or was bad to begin with (of course, detensioning your blade and cleaning the tires can help with their life). If it were my saw, I'd replace both tires to assure a good balance.
