All,

I have been having some frustrating bearing sieze up over the last few weeks.

I would like to swap out my OEM roller guides for the ceramic ones. I have the 14” Grizzly GO457 (which I love), but can’t seem to find the ceramic block guide assembly, just the replacement ceramic blocks.

Will replacement parts from a Jet fit? anyone else have this issue?

Any help would be appreciated.

-Ivan

The roller guides on the GO457 should be the same as G0555P and G0555 bandsaws

I can’t seem to find anything in terms of parts…

I did find this post, but there are no part numbers listed.

Did you check with Iturra Design to see if he has anything that he knows will fit?

No, there’s no website, but do a Google search for Iturra design and practically the first thing that comes up is a downloadable 2010 catalog of theirs. You can download it, peruse that information, see if there’s anything you think might be useful, and then give the guy a call if there is.
