I’d like to stock up on a couple things for my bs before I need them, but I don’t know where to get them. I’ve looked online to no avail mainly because there are so many reviews and such. I’m sure parts are available somewhere though.

What I need to get are some blade guides and a couple extra bearings. I believe the blade is a 96 inch, but I don’t know for sure.

Any help appreciated.

central machine is Harbor Frieght, so items specific to that machine you can call them. I have a central machine bandsaw, the last blade guides I bought from woodcraft, but guides and blades can be bought alm ost anywhere. You may have to cross reference the guides by size.

The saw lit doesn’t say if they are 3/8 or 1/4. I was hoping there were some better aftermarket stuff for them. I think I’ll order a timberwolf blade too. Mine is a bit dull and leaving burn marks and it isn’t great about curved cuts which I think is the dull blade.

I bought the cool blocks, they work pretty well.

My blade is 93 1/2” on my 14”.

I was just looking that up, thanks. I think I’ll go with a 3/8 4TPI. I don’t cut really tight curves but you never know. I’d like to try out a 1/4 blade just to see how it does.

Get Olson cool blocks, 1/2” x 1/2”. The bearings should be a 6200z (stamped on the bearing). They should be available from a local bearing supplier. You can also get them on eBay for cheap. The quality bearings will be made in Japan.
