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.

Good for the money

Ok so after years of use I decided to upgrade my startrite 14-s-1 from the original friction guides to these guides. For the money their solid, plenty of adjustment. They wouldn't fit straight out the box, which I knew before I purchased them. I'm a hands on person and have the ability and means to make the required alterations. The top set I got to fit with minor changes but at the moment I haven't fitted the bottom set, they will require alot more thinking about as there isn't the space to get them in. They can be a bit of a fiddle setting them up but once its done its done. One thing I would recommend is you swap out the bearings for quality ones. I'm sad to say that I haven't even change the blade since I fitted the guides and the thrust bearing is shot already. Please Axminster, upgrade the bearings. I'd rather pay a few pence more and have reliability than spend and hour sorting it out.

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.
