230 (9in) mm band saw

I live in a sub trpical clamate and the guide bands on the two wheels have rotted and disintegrated. Where can I purchase replacements? preferably of a type that will last more than six months.

    Hi there, thank you for your response. The colour of the bands where of a translucent yellow and of a pollyurethane type material. it is of note that I have had the same problem with motor vehicle bushes and mounts for my model engines that where manufactured from the same or similar material. they last a few months then disitegrate, literally fall into crumbs. I have a brand new packet of bushes that are a plastic bag full of crumbs and steel bushings.

    I hope this helps as I live in Darwin and there are not any trade outlets that stock spare parts for Ryobi tools.

    Thank you.

    Regards Carl

I have searched the web and found wheel tires for the BS902 model and the BS903 model but not the BS901. If you have the 02 or 03 model you can find the rubber tires @ for $2.97 ea. They have 7 in stock according to their website. I asked you the color of the tires because I was hoping there might be several choices of materials available but this is the only one I found. Best of luck MC4X4

Band saw blade keeps coming off

Set up your band saw properly. There are several reason why band saw blade keeps on coming off on the wheels: loose/wear tire, improper guide adjustment, incorrect tension, over feeding wood stock or the problem could be on the blade itself. Try to change your blade, I got my band saw blades on . I suggest you watch band saw tune up tutorial videos on youtube. Hope that helps.

Why doesnt the wheels on my band saw turn when I turn the saw on?I can't even turn them when the saw is off.

Most likely the blade has come out of position and jammed. One place to check is at the guides just above and below the table.
To be sure the guides are correct, Google on "adjust band saw" to find out how to adjust them.

I have a ryobi bs901 band saw... the cheap latex(?) rubber tires disintegrate in a single summer season due to the heat in my Georgia shop. I need real rubber tires built to last a while. Any suggestions?...

I had to take mine back. Some of these saws come with a small gap in the rubber wheel. This causes the rubber to deteriorate over time, kind of like a pot hole. I've had the replacement band saw for 5 years and it still works perfectly.

8 inch delta band saw that cant keep the band in place in use

The rubber bands on the metal wheels are called tires, and if they are cracked, they may very well be crowned and causing the problem with the band coming off.

To test, remove the back guide (as opposed to the side guides) on the top and bottom guide sets (above and below the table.). Put a blade on, and see if it will stay on. If it doesn't, replace the tires. If it does, reinstall the back guides and make sure they do not touch the back of the blade when the saw is running. There should by about 1/32" between the guide and the blade.

Help with my dw100 band saw

Pull the plug on the saw, take off the covers on the upper and lower wheels of the saw.

You will see an adjustment bolt above the upper wheel and below the lower wheel, with the band saw in place on both wheels turn the upper wheel by hand, if the band saw moves to either side of the wheel use the adjustment bolts to center the band saw.
