I received one of these for Christmas and as simple as it is it does the trick. I installed it where they suggested, drilling a small pilot hole first then screwing it into the blade guide. It does a good job cleaning the tire and seems to be well made and should last a long time. i really like Carter band saw accessories. I give it 5 stars..

Looks good, I have a set of the Carter roller guides and I’m really pleased. Have a great new year!

My wife works in a hospital, and brings back disposable tooth brushes that have never been used. I find a little dab of 5 min epoxy, does the same thing, for a lot lower cost. But I have known to be on the cheap side.

Just now getting on the Carter band wagon. I have the Stabilizer and my Magfence is just around the corner. Might as well add the wheel brush. Thanks for the review.

This was one of the first accessories I added to my Jet 14” when I bought it last Spring. I was amazed at how much sawdust the lower tire accumulated without it, and how clean it stays since I added the brush.

I have purchased a number of items from Carter Products, and can’t say enough good about their products and their customer service. When I ordered my brush and Quick Release, their website was down so I called their toll-free order line. The woman I spoke with made dealing with Carter Products a very pleasant experience!

I do love the toothbrush idea! I have seen it a few places now, but I think I am going to use a nylon bristled plastic brush like this since I have a few lying around the shop already.

It is nice to know that there is a “designed” item for this if the cheap-o ideas don’t hold up well! Thanks for the review.

I was considering all the “toothbrush” ideas but when I saw how cheap this was…and it took all of about 2 minutes to install, I put it on the Xmass list….didn’t feel like jimmy rigging anything…no offense to Jimmy

Dumb question

Have you had any problem it melting the brush?

Installed mine this morning.
Not smart to do this at -5 degrees Celsius as my bs blade was not so flexible.
I wound up using two spring clamps on the top wheel to hold the bugger down while I stretched the blade onto the lower wheel.
The brush works great btw

Another mounting solution: after upgrading my Delta 14” with the riser block, the new inside blade guard is aluminum as opposed to the original black plastic. I didn’t want to bother drilling a hole in the new blade guard, so I just used a bit of hot-melt glue to install it. Works great.
