    Default replacing guide ball bearing on 14" bandsaw, need anything special?

    I was going to order a plain vanilla shielded bearing from McMaster for replacing the blade guide rear bearings in my Delta 14", but wondered if maybe the plain old bearing that was in there wasn't right to begin with when I bought it at auction.

    There's sites selling bearing specifically for this for 3x the price, but I assumed that's the sucker price, not a different product. Any problems with this item for the job?

    No need to spend a lot of time researching these gellfex, plain is fine.

    Have replaced them on cheap and quality saws, plain old shielded bearings.

    Default Get a pair

    Get a pair and replace the upper and lower bearing. Take the "best" of the old bearings and wire it to the saw as a spare when one of the new ones gives up many years down the road. While you are taking things apart make sure to clean and adjust the complete guide system. I remove the table for this operation. My preference are Rock Maple guide blocks and stoning the back of a new blade when installing it. I make a stick of block material with the table saw and cut a pile of them ready for use.
