18" Woodcutting Band Saw

Upper 18"  HDPE ( Plastic )wheel.
I found the pair of wheels at a local scrap yard and don't have
any idea what they were originally for. The wheels had an
automotive type hub / wheel bearing assembly already mounted.

Lower 18" wheel.
Rides on a fixed 1" shaft supported by two sealed ball bearings.


18" HDPE ( Plastic ) wheel found at local scrap yard.

Steel hub with 2 roller bearings
I removed the automotive type tapered bearings and bored the
id of the hub to accept two 1" id sealed bearings.

The orange around the wheels are Urethane Band Saw Tires
from Suffolk Machinery

Built in fluorescent 15 watt light
