How to Use Masking and Electrical Tape to Quick Fix Your Bandsaw Wheel and Tire

Taping bandsaw wheel For a temporary fix of your bandsaw blade's wheel and tire, a little masking tape and electrical tape can hold it secure until you get a replacement.

I once had a band saw tire come off of its wheel and get damaged by the blade. While I waited for the replacement to arrive, I came up with a temporary fix. I wound several layers of masking tape onto the wheel, followed by vinyl electrical tape. While this wouldn’t be a good fix for an industrial shop, I was surprised when my “tape tire” worked for several months. If you try this trick, wind the wheel clockwise to keep the blade from unravelling it.
