  • English Wheel Forming Band
English Wheel Forming Band is rated 3.0 out of 5 by 2.
Rated 1 out of 5 by from Won't fit the wheel Arrived later than expected, and won't fit my wheel. I double checked, it's a harbor freight wheel and it's 8 inches. I have been fighting this rubber band for an hour, trying to get it to wrap around this wheel. I mean pulling so hard my arms are shaking (im 6'2, 215lbs). I have tried using a wooden hammer handle to help me stretch it over the wheel. I can't get this on for the life of me. I called Eastwood for help and nobody picked up the phone while I was on hold for 5 minutes. No human ever answered. I live 8 hours from Eastwood. This took over a week to get here and what a disappointment. This was my first and last order from Eastwood.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Does exactly what it's supposed to. I read the previous 1 star review and decided to order mine anyway and take a chance. My E-wheel band showed up 2 days earlier than expected and was a breeze to install. It is a tight band but I exerted nowhere near effort the other reviewer did. I can only assume that Eastwood has either updated the band since the last review or there was a mistake with the last reviewer's order. In any case the band fit my 2" wide x 8" diameter wheel fine. I should note that my wheel is a different brand than offered by Eastwood but the band fit like a snug glove. I shaped a test piece of 18 gauge with finesse in moments. I'm very happy with the band and would highly recommend it.
