In Detail

This guide assembly provides ball bearing supports at the rear and on the sides of the blade in place of the more usual rubbing blocks. The improved support will reduce blade vibration and give a cleaner and more accurate cut. For and aft movement of both rear and side bearings is controlled by screws and the bearings themselves are mounted on eccentric bosses for precise setting of the blade clearance. Supplied as a complete set of upper and lower assemblies complete with bearings. The diameter of the mounting hole in the top casting is 22mm. When fitting these guides to your machine some modification may be needed.

Looks good but wont fit everything

Usual great service on this item, looked good quality with plenty of adjustment, but shame it will not fit a Startrite 14-s-1 as the bottom table support was in the way and not enough clearence between this and the blade to fit it in.
On the plus side I found out how easy it was to return.

Top notch kit

I ordered kit at 2pm,Arrived 2.30 next day.I own a Axminster JBS 126 which I bought in 1999 which was fitted with cooling blocks.It was straight forward to remove and replace with new kit,Even with adjustments ,Less than 20 minutes.75% better performance, Usual excellent service from Axminster from ordering to fitting.

Decent Bearing Kit

We got one of these to replace the original metal guide blocks on our Startrite 352- The top set is very easy to install and the bottom needed an adapter plate attaching to the saw so there was enough room to fit it and you'll probably need to either shorten the adjustment screws or remove them completely.

It'll take a bit of work to get this to fit onto some machines but if you're already in a workshop environment it should be a pretty simple task.

Bandsaw Guide

After 24 April, see review above, I re-engineered the Bandsaw Blade Guide System Upgrade by using part of the system and adding changes to it so that the hardened steel bearing cover, on the original machine could be used instead of the side face of a bearing. Now, there is no dust to speak of, gets to this bearing and there is now no seizing up of this bearing and all the associated problems you get with a seized bearing.
I do have a SEIG mini lathe so it was quite easy to turn some new redesigned pieces as required.

Mainly Technical

After my first review and having used it for three months now on a regular basis, I am now convinced that the bottom bearing that supports the back of the saw blade does need to have a hardened cover on the bearing, as this bearing in particular doesn't last very long, about 5 hours of sawing, before it seizes up. The only cure is a new bearing. I haven't worked out yet how a cover could be fitted to the bottom bearing as there is just not enough room for one to be fitted.
