Topic tags/keywords: rikon bandsaw bearings

Has anyone tried this new bearing kit Rikon is selling for their 14” band saw, or at least been able to put their hands on it? It’s not cheap at $149, but the advantages of tool-less adjustment are intriguing. It also sounds like they are better bearings than those that came with the saw.

I know a few of the forum members have installed the Carter bearing replacements for the Rikon, and I wonder if these are every bit as good?

I can’t speak for the Rikon bearings, but I have 2 Rikons and the Carter guides, they are great. Good luck, my Rikon band saws have been great, except the guides. I am sure their new setup is a huge improvement.
