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.

Band saw guide conversion (retrofit) kits typically include the upper and lower guides, upper and lower mounting brackets, studs, screws, and (if appropriate) a guard adapter bracket.

Users report that Guide Kits improve overall saw performance, reduce blade friction, and increase cutting accuracy.
