I have a HR dust collector with the 2hp motor and it runs great. I was walking through and noticed that HF sells electric motors. Has anyone bought and used these motors . What opinions do you have about them and are they junk or a hidden gem?

I was throwing around the idea of getting roller guides for my Jet 14” band saw. Do roller guides make a big difference on how well the saw runs and cuts?
