I’m looking at buying some parts from Grizzly to fix my Buffalo. I need to know what the diameter of the upper guide bar is that the guide clamps on. Mine measures about 7/8”. I suspect the newer grizzlies are smaller, but if someone has one they can measure that would be great. I think either way i can get parts from Grizzly, but I may need more parts if the bars are not the same size. Thanks.

A picture of what you’re asking may trigger someone’s memory.

Thanks, Mark, I actually just got an email from Grizzly in response to my online chat with them. They actually went and measured the part and it does not match up. The guide bar on my saw measures 7/8 and their part measures 3/4 which is what I was needing to know. I think I may have found a better match with some Jet parts. Probably should have put a picture up in the first place though.
