Cool Block band saw blade guides replace standard metal or plastic guides and enhance cutting performance. They are made of a high tech, non-metallic composite material, graphite impregnated phenolic laminate, which contains 3 synthetic dry lubricants that lubricate the blade but do not make it oily. The metal to metal contact made by old metal guide blocks creates heat and friction which causes premature wear and breakage. These problems are eliminated with Cool Block blade guides that allow blades to run cooler and last longer with less friction.
- Cool block blade guides will improve the cutting performance of any blade
- Cool block blade guides are especially effective for 3/16 in. and 1/8 in. W blades for tight radius work
- Fits most 14 in. vertical/stationary 2-wheel band saws such as jet, grizzly, ridged and sears craftsman
- Improves band saw blade life
Did the research on these blocks to replace the old ones on my Delta 1956, 14 inch band saw. HD had the exact fit for the saw and the price was exactly what I expected. Shipping was fast, pickup was easy and I couldn’t be happier. Thanks HD! You guys keep this DIY guy connected with great end results!!
As expected. Fast shipping.
Work as advertised. Helped blade run true.
