Wheel Guard

A wheel guard is a protective component used in band saws to enclose the drive and idler wheels, preventing accidental contact with the moving wheels and blade during operation. Wheel guards are typically made of metal, plastic, or other durable materials and help protect the operator from injury and the band saw components from damage. Proper use and maintenance of wheel guards, including regular inspection for damage and proper fit, are essential for ensuring operator safety and tool longevity.
