Having previously worked in the woodworking machine industry for over 30 years and part of this time running a Spares and Repairs department, I understand how frustrating it can be when a manufacturer discontinues a machine and no longer provides spares for what, otherwise, is a reliable and versatile workshop tool.
Given the number of enquiries my teams received, replacement bandsaw tyres seemed difficult to obtain in the UK or expensive to import individually from the USA.
In the Summer of 2020 I started to import Urethane bandsaw tyres from Sulphur Grove Tool located in Florida and became their Sales Agent in the UK.
There are well over 150 different tyre sizes available. Working with Sulphur Grove Tool we have identified the most common sizes in the UK which I have in stock. This enables me to offer these tyres at a more competitive price and means that you can take delivery of the tyres you need within a few days.
In the future I will be looking to offer other parts, please check the website for updates.
