band saw tires - crown them ? - 2 replies

I bought a used BS on CL with the original rubber tires. They are in decent shape. The bottom tire has a bit of a ridge but I think I can let it ride (pun intended). I’ve cleaned them and my question is should I crown them ? If so how much?

WTB Festool Dust Extractor - 0 replies

I don’t know if this is the correct forum. If not I apologize in advance. I am in the market for a Festool Dust Extractor. MIDI, 22, 33, or 26.
