IIRC, the Delta 14” cast iron saws use 1” wide tires.

Thanks Brad,

Have you or anyone used the smaller .75” in a 1” wide wheel casting cavity? Does it create the reported problems. I have not found a 1” wide urethane tire yet. I just talked to Carter, they recommend the .75” wide tire. I only want to do this once.

I think I have the same bandsaw and have put the tires on 2 others with 1” wheels. I’ve had no problems whatsoever with the 1”. Use a clamp to hold it in place then use a piece of 1/4 to 3/8 rod stock in a drill and roll it on like a bike chain.
