I'm rating this product 4/5 because I used it to retrofit my Delta 28-206 band saw. The top guide fits whitout modification; even the blade guard mounting bolt pattern fits! But the bottom guide is a different design. I'm keeping it for spare bearing. Excellent price. Fast delivery. Thanks.
I just replaced the guides on my 14" 1991 King KC514 band saw. The upper bearing holder hole was too large for the 3/4" guide post and I forgot to order the bushing adapter so I turned one up on my metal lathe. I also had to drill and tap two holes to hold the lower guide. Both easy fixes. Every thing else fit perfectly. The casting and all the parts are of good quality. After a bit of fiddling to get the bearings lined up and spaced properly I am very pleased with the improvement over the pot metal guide holders that came on the saw.
I retrofit my King KC1401 14 inch bandsaw. Woork fine Everything fit perfectly except the hole on the top bearing holder was too big . I just cut a 1/2 cooper fitting , put ut on the bandsaw shaft , and work perfectly . I use it like a bushing . No need to get expensive Carter
Almost didn't buy because of the other review..... The top guide fits perfect~ I did have to flip the 2 lower bearings in the lower mount so it would fit... a little die grinding on the lower case mounting so the top bearing would clear & shazam~ A Sure Footed Monkey could figure it out
Works Perfect.... The Carter Bearing kit it $170- $50 for this kit / took 1hr to install & Dial in = WOW $ 120 in my pocket..... Nice.
Used this to retrofit my old busy bee 14" bandsaw. The crude castings are nothing short of terrible. I managed to re- engineer the bearing parts into the original castings and it tuned up well. If I had it to do over again, I'd spend the money on the Carter bearing kit and save the grief.
