C.Dale williams here is another way to replace the Tires Use a bissell vacuum belt it is a little wide but by the time you strech it around the tire it is a perfect fit. as for blades I have used over the counter blades that are anywhere between 80 and 921/2 inch then cut them down to 69-691/2 and silver solder them this sounds difficult but it is really easy the silver solder you want the carry at home depot it is specialty silver solder and comes with the flux and the solder scarf yoint the two ends of the blade grind 3/32s back to give good adhesion heat with a small pencil torch and wahla your almost done now file or if your good with a dremel grind away excess solder and you are good to go. or you can get a kit from woodcrafters to do the same thing it is 35 bucks has a cool littl cigerett lighter torch solder flux and a little clamp too hold everything in place (I used 2 small spring clamps) and the kit has a file to file the blade smooth I spent 4.99 on the solder and fulx which gave me the money to buy three different blades woohoo now I have a 3/8ths a 1/4 and a1/8th blade a great saw I never have blade breakage issues and if I do by chance pop a blade I just fix it myself
