I got that Kalamazoo band saw apart yesterday and found the reason for no bearings on the spine of the blade. They have carbide buttons the blade runs against. One is missing so I called thier service center and ordered two. Pics below.

Above shows blade guide that is missing carbide wear button. Note the groove resulting from useing without button.

Above shows other guide with one bearing removed and wear button in place.

The chip pan has a couple of cracks that need welding, then clean up paint and reassembly.
