Band Saw Guide Upgrade Kits

Bandsaw Guide conversion kits replace the lower and upper factory band saw blade guide assemblies with a precision guide assembly.

The blade guide is solid high grade aluminum and utilizes high-grade sealed ball bearings. With this design, the blade is held on each side by a ball bearing and the thrust is taken by a third ball bearing.

This is a drastic improvement over factory blade guide, the blade is loosely held by solid blocks and the thrust is taken by the side of a ball bearing.

When you upgrade to our band saw guide conversion kits the blade is held much more precisely, which translates into cleaner cuts, quieter operation, and less wasted wood.
