Vesper Tools is proud to be Australia's only one stop shop for bandsaw wheel reconditioning including re-rubbering new tires. Particularly for woodworking bandsaws with rubber tires.
Do you have bandsaw vibration or blade tracking problems? Wheels lost their cambered/crowned profile?
Send to Vesper Tools of Carrum Downs in Melbourne for repair.
Please read the below, and contact Vesper Tools by phone or email for more info.
Wheel size 250mm dia to 1400mm+ dia. Max wheel face width 150mm.
We vulcanize new rubber onto your bandsaw wheels. Grind it circular, profile it with a nice cambered crown profile, 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. (91cm x 50mm wide wheel)
For re-grind, re-profiling, and balancing of existing serviceable rubber starting at $3.30 + GST per Centimeter of wheel diameter. (91cm x 50mm wheel)
Smaller wheels are cheaper, but have a slightly rising price per centimeter of dia as they get smaller.
We also engage in mechanical repairs as required for bandsaw wheels and shafts. Bearings and associated damage, repairing shaft or replacing shafts, bushes, keyways, snap ring grooves, and generally returning wheels in a condition to provide you with happy service for decades to come.
Any extra mechanical work will be quoted as required.
Don't forget the bandsaw guides we offer either parts such as thrust wheels and blocks, or complete replacement kits for large 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 further costs.
We service bandsaw wheels and blade guides of all makes, including but not limited to: Wolfenden, L S Barker, Wadkin, Wadkin Bursgreen, 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.
