Bandsaw blade guides
I have a couple of bandsaws, one built from a kit of castings probably before I was alive.
Following a bit of use I need to do a bit of revamping.
The blade is guided at the back of the cutting table by a couple of ball bearings, LJ1/4 which I have got anew, however the sides of the blade are guided by simple pieces of hard leather, sort of a rub guide.
What could I replace these with, I dont think the machine needs or is worth the effort of fitting ball bearing guides in replacement, I need something 1/4" square section hard wearing.
I might try some delrin and see if that works, I have some brass keysteel but I think that'd have all the local dogs barking.
Build it, bodge it, but dont buy it.
