Vesper Tools is proud to be Australia's only one stop shop for bandsaw wheel reconditioning re-rubbering by vulcanising new tires and machining and balancing.
Do you have bandsaw vibration or blade tracking problems? Wheels grooved and lost their cambered/crowned profile?
Send to Vesper Tools in Carrum Downs, Melbourne for repair.
Please read the below, then contact Vesper Tools by phone or email.
Wheel diameter 180mm dia to 1200mm+ dia. Max face width 100+mm.
We do NOT supply DIY kits of the cheap stretch on urethane or rubber tires. Find those in common online shopping websites.
We do the proper industrial process of vulcanizing new rubber onto your bandsaw wheels, or recondition existing vulcanised rubber tires. We vulcanise new rubber on, then machine it circular, profile it with a nice camber/crown profile, and do a static balance.
If existing old vulcanised rubber is still serviceable and well bonded to the wheel but simply worn, we can re-machine it, re-profile and re-balance for less cost than new rubber too.
Price guide as follows:
Full service with replacement vulcanised rubber, machined and balanced starts at $9.90 + GST per Centimeter of wheel diameter. (920mm OD x 50mm wide wheel)
Re-machining and re-profiling and balancing of existing serviceable rubber starts at $4.15+ GST per Centimeter of wheel diameter. (920mm OD x 50mm wheel)
Smaller wheels are cheaper of course, but have rising price per centimeter of dia as they get smaller.
We can also machine and re-profile the OD of steel wheel narrow band resaw machines, the belt fed type common in many large wood processing shops and pallet manufacturers. Typical size might be 800mm dia x 25mm wide. Easily done. Call us for a competitive quote.
We also do mechanical repairs for bandsaw wheels. Bearings and associated parts, repairing or replacing shafts, threads, lock nuts, bores and bushes, keys and keyways, snap rings and grooves, etc, and generally returning wheels in a condition to provide you with flawless service for many decades to come.
Any extra work such as bearing change out can be quoted as required.
We accept wheels for rubber replacement from all over Australia, speak to us to organise freight. Wheels should be cleaned, and palletised or crated securely for transport.
We service bandsaw wheels and blade guides of all makes, including but not limited to: Wolfenden, L S Barker, Wadkin, Wadkin Bursgreen, Woodfast, Macson, McPherson, Steelfast, Tannewitz, Oliver, Yates, SCM, Socomec, Centauro, Meber, Hammer, Felder, Laguna, plus any other bandsaws.
Don't forget the bandsaw guides we offer. Parts such as thrust wheels and side blocks or complete replacement kits for large upright industrial woodworking bandsaws are available.
Each wheel even off the same machine can be essentially a custom job as they are usually different bore diameter and weights, each one dealt with by expert hands and eyes.
