Parts verification for 10 in. band saw rubber tires Possibly 17221399 (from computer)


Thank you for contacting with your questions about your Companion Band Saw. I will be happy to help you with part numbers and the manual. To better assist you, I would like for you to verify the model number. Model 17221399 is an 8-inch band saw, not 10-inch as indicated in your question. I have included a blue link below for you to review the manual.
If this is the correct band saw, the part number for the rubber tires (also called rubber bands) is 21399-8. The part number for the blade is 21399-10. 

I hope this answers your questions. If the model number is incorrect, please resubmit your question with the correct model number and I will be happy to research this information for you again. Thank you for choosing Sears, we appreciate your business.

Thank you for your question.

As a technician that has done this job many times I can really understand what you are going through.

I will give you some tricks that I use that I hope will help you.

You have the approximately 6 inch tires to go on a 8 inch plus wheel.You do have the correct tires.

If your shop is in a cool climate you may have to warm up the wheel before you try to install the tires. A hair blow dryer will work.

I will have about 8 to 10 3/8 x 4 inch dowels precut to help with this repair.

Use some rubbing alcohol to clean the inside of the new rubber tires of any talc residue that may be on the tires.

Then have a pan of very hot water to soak the new tires in.

If you have a long bar clamp that you can install at the 6:00 o-clock position through the spoke of the wheel to keep the wheel from turning while you put the tire on would be helpful.

Place the heated tire onto the warmed wheel at the 12:00 position and use the 3/8 dowels to span across the wheel and position the tire over the dowels as you work you way down both sides of the wheel. Start installing the dowel the 11:00 and the 1:00 position maintaining tension on the tire as you work it around the wheel as you get to the 3:00 and 9:00 position remove the 11:00 and 1:00 dowels, and continue working the warm tire around the wheel.

I realize this is not easy and since you are having trouble with doing this installation if you have an extra pair of hands it would not hurt.

Some of the band saw tire installation sites instruct you to remove the wheels and use clamps and rollers to roll the tires on.

Even though these tires require some hand strength to get this done I have done all of mine with the wheels still on the saw. If this does not work for you I will give a web-site that illustrates the other way of doing this repair.

I hope this will help.
