Aftermarket Marvel Band Wheels

A marvel band wheel and blade combination including a pulley has a peripheral groove and a tire mated with and received within the groove. The tire has an inner diameter greater than the inner diameter of the groove to be free floating within the groove. The band saw blade is received against the outside surface of the tire and forces the tire into the groove. As a result, a firm frictional contact between the tire and the pulley and between the band saw blade and the tire is achieved to provide a strong driving force of the blade by the pulley. In a slowing economy, machinery break downs can be especially costly to your competitive edge as well as your bottom line. We make every effort to keep your band saw in production. We have the ability to ship worldwide from our location in Houston, Texas. We are always here to help you to keep your saws and employees working.
