    All the tension you apply is load on the bushings in the plastic wheel. At least with a 10'' throat it is less likely to compress the frame than a 14''.

    Thanks! No doubt it doesnt cut corners at all... But its fine for me

    And i cranked the tension on, nothings wobbling or warping and its cutting great

    i will order your blade recomendations, i know it will corner alot better

    i didnt have a bandsaw till now so its a 100% improvement for me

    when i finish the motor mount i can post a video of the wheels and blade while its resawing 8 inch oak.

    i have my doubts on that too. i would contact tuff tooth and ask them about a 1/4 blade maybe 3/8 at the most

    ordered a blade from sawsalutions. i didnt look where they were from. Turns out they are 5 minuts from my house... paid 15 for shipping haha. Ohwell!

    i put a 1/2 inch with 6 tpi and it resaws hardwood 8 inches thick. Just what i needed for my 10 inch lathe. it doesnt corner but will make blanks perfectly Click image for larger version

    thats from a totally different era!
    i had an 8 inch drill press with beaver tags, it was a toy and a poor one at that compared to my 1940's beaver 3700

    Think of your saw as a scroll saw rather than a bandsaw. With a 1/8 blade it will perform very well for outside contours.

    Mark, R&D does have more than is on his website, he also has tire rubber to glue on, but yes maybe there’s something on the net that will work, though it looks like the OP’s wheels do still have tires on the wheels, quite possibly he does not need new tires.

    No 10” tires at R&D, probably best to get the blue Carter Urethane off Amazon. I have the same type on my 12” WT, AKA the phone table.
