I have never worked on a bandsaw or operated one.

What do I need to check on these when restoring it?

I checked the tires and bearings it seems all of them need replacing.

Is there anything else I need to check that typically broke or did not operate well?

Upper wheel hinge is about the only weak link. Make sure it’s not bent or cracked.
Other than bearings, tires and probably a belt, everything else is pretty much bullet proof.
I’d replace the bearings in the motor while you are at it.

Cheers,
Brad

Do I need a special bearing press to do that myself or should I take the motor to an electric motor shop?

I’ve never needed a press. A 3-jaw puller and/or bearing splitter helps with removal, but isn’t usually required as there are plenty of ways to get them off without one. Putting them on usually just involves an appropriate sized pipe or deep well socket and a hammer. Pull the motor apart and see what bearings you need so you can order them all at the same time… and don’t forget a couple of 6200’s (guide thrust bearings).

Cheers,
Brad
