Vesper Tools is proud to now be Australia's only one stop shop for all bandsaw wheel reconditioning. Particularly for woodworking bandsaws with rubber tyres.
Do you have bandsaw vibration or blade tracking problems?
Send to Vesper Tools in Carrum Downs in Melbourne and we shall fix them.
Please read the below, and contact Vesper Tools by phone or email for more info.
Wheel size 250mm dia to 1200mm+ dia. Max wheel face width 100mm. (Please inquire by phone for wheels outside these specs)
We vulcanize new rubber onto your wheels. Grind it circular, profile it with a nice crown, and balance.
If the existing rubber is serviceable but worn, we can simply re-grind, re-profile and re-balance.
Price guide as follows:
For full service with new rubber, grind and balance is starting at $6.20 + GST per Centimeter of wheel diameter.
For re-grind, re-profiling, and balancing of existing serviceable rubber starting at $3.30 + GST per Centimeter of wheel diameter.
We can also engage in any mechanical repairs as required for bandsaw wheels and shafts, including bearings and repairing any associated damage, repairing shaft diameters or making new shafts, bushes, keyways, snap ring grooves, and generally returning wheels to you in a state to provide you with happy service for decades to come.
Any mechanical fitting work is extra cost on top of the above.
Don't forget the bandsaw guides we offer either part or complete assemblies for larger industrial bandsaws.
We accept wheels from all over Australia, speak to us to organise freight. Wheels should be cleaned and palletised or crated for transport from interstate, any extra work to disassemble and reassemble components may be subject to extra costs.
We service bandsaw wheels and blade guides of all makes, including but not limited to: Wolfenden, L S Barker, Wadkin, Woodfast, Macson, Steelfast, Tannewitz, Oliver, Yates, SCM, Socomec, Centauro, Meber, and any others.
Each wheel is essentially a custom job, each one dealt with by expert hands and eyes.
Also bear in mind we vulcanise new rubber onto the wheel, this means 'done properly'. This is not a stretch on tire which is basically a fancy rubber band you install yourself often even without glue. These DIY rubber or urethane stretch on tyres have a place in the world for sure, but they don't work on larger machines or machines expected to perform at their peak with heavy work and forces on wheels that bigger blades and higher tensions can generate.
