Topic tags/keywords: grizzly bandsaw tire g0457

I can’t figure out what happened here. I’ve got a grizzly G0457 14” bandsaw, used occasionally, mine is a hobby shop, and yesterday, I needed it, pulled the tension lever over, hit the switch and bang! Thought the blade broke, it didn’t, but the tire on the upper wheel had come off and was coiled up near the blade guide. Tire is mostly in one piece, except for the ¼” strips torn off one edge.
It worked perfectly the last time I used it, and all I did was release the tension lever when I was done.
Crazy.

sounds like the blade moved when tightening, and caused the failure. just one idea of many to follow i’m sure

Were the tires original or did you replace them at one time? If they were replaced, were they the right size. I’m guessing your wheels have a lip on the edges. Are the tires rubber or polyurethane? If the wheels have lips, they don’t need glue, but if no lip, they may need glue.

Original. And they have the lip.
Well, the saw wasn’t that old when I got it, so I’m assuming they are original. They both fit perfectly in the groove.
I’ve already ordered a replacement from grizzly.

Those tires are a bear to install. I don’t see how it could have come off the wheel in one piece.

If the wheel was still even slightly spinning when you last released the tension, that was the cause.
