Does the job

I received one of these for Christmas and as simple as it is it does the trick. I installed it where they suggested, drilling a small pilot hole first then screwing it into the blade guide. It does a good job cleaning the tire and seems to be well made and should last a long time. i really like Carter band saw accessories. I give it 5 stars..

Kreg Bandsaw Fence is a Keeper

Kreg Bandsaw Fence is a Keeper

05-29-2018 03:15 PM by pintodeluxe | 18 comments »

This Kreg fence was chosen as replacement for the factory fence on my early 90’s Jet bandsaw. The old Jet fence had tubular front and rear rails, and was cumbersome to lock into place. You actually had to tighten two separate knobs. My other complaint was the Jet fence rails stuck out several inches to the right, and I was always backing into them and jabbing my ribs. So out with the Jet, and in with the Kreg.The really great thing about the Kreg fence is that it’s located within the foot...

Tool-less Blade Guide Bearing Retofit

Tool-less Blade Guide Bearing Retofit

04-20-2017 04:11 PM by woodshopmike | 9 comments »

This review is going to just skim the surface as a more detailed review is on my blog here. With that said, let me tell you the big things that make this upgrade great. The new blade guides don’t take up anymore room than the originals, but they’re many times better. The bearings are 6000 series which is a big step up from the skateboard sized bearings that originally came on the saw. Also, adjusting the bearings is very quick an easy. There is a thumb screw on the front of...

Great customer service

Great customer service

This isn’t a blade review, but I’ve bought several and been pleased with all of them. (I recommend the 3-pack for the price and versatility – one for curves, one for rip and one for reswaw for less than $100.) Will continue to buy from them, especially now. Not long ago I ordered a replacement 3/4” and I could not get the thing to stop wobbling at least 1/4 inch back and forth. Messed with every adjustment imaginable and nothing worked. I thought maybe I even screwed u...

I love this blade!

I love this blade!

06-23-2009 04:12 AM by teenagewoodworker | 18 comments »

In my shop i like things to match. bookmatched especially. and one of my favorite things in the world is projects from all one slab of wood. so naturally i do ALOT a resawing. so for that i need a good resaw blade. This blade really fulfills my need too! I have a 14” bandsaw with the riser block so for resawing i got for the 105” 3 tpi by 3/4” blade. these blades have hook teeth which is very aggressive but also leaves a pretty nice finish. not glue ready by any means but go...

Space Age Ceramics bandsaw guides

Space Age Ceramics bandsaw guides

12-07-2017 07:09 AM by newwoodbutcher | 8 comments »

I have two bandsaws, a newer 18” Rikon and an old Cast Iron 16” Grizzly. The Rikon is permanently set up to resew and the Grizzly is set up with a 1/4” blade for curved work. I installed Space Age Ceramics Guides on the Ricon over a year ago and have had Carter Guides on the Grizzly for about two years. Both saws get a lot of use in my shop. After resewing a lot of Hardwood making veneers for over a year now on the Rikon, I am very happy with the Ceramic guides. They ar...

Two bad welds in a row

Two bad welds in a row

08-27-2016 01:32 AM by ColonelTravis | 10 comments »

Not gonna buy a Timberwolf blade again. It took me hours to figure out I had a bad weld the first time, wasn’t sure what the problem was. After putting it on the floor, you can see it doesn’t lay evenly all around. Its replacement also had a bad weld. I’ve read others who’ve said this wasn’t uncommon with TW. Maybe the wolf mascot is biting the blade too hard. The problem blades were resaw blades. I have two other smaller ones from TW that cut fine. But two du...

Custom made sanding belts for the band saw

Custom made sanding belts for the band saw

02-28-2013 07:51 PM by PatrickB | 4 comments »

I ordered these a week ago and love them. You can order them any length with many widths to choose from. I ordered 3 ea. in 1/4”, 3/8”, & 1/2” in varying grits and they are the cats meow. The only down side was it took a while for them to arrive, about two weeks. Remove the bearing guides and set the tension and away you go. I’ve used them on end grain, curves, tight areas, they fit just about any where. The main thing is have one of those sanding belt belt cleaner...

Great Light, many uses.

Great Light, many uses.

11-27-2009 12:20 AM by drfixit | 5 comments »

This is really a great little light, comes with a wall power adapter, and runs off ‘AAA’ batteries. I keep it on one of my band saws with the light beam focused right at the blade and it works very well, the magnet holds VERY strong. When I want to use it else where such as on my mortising machine, I simply unplug it and use the battery power for that bit of time. I caught it on sale but I feel its well worth the regular price of $30. It also comes with a clamp on mounting pla...

Highland Woodworking's Woodturner's 3/8 inch Bandsaw Blade

Highland Woodworking's Woodturner's 3/8 inch Bandsaw Blade

04-24-2019 10:58 PM by Jerry | 18 comments »

After getting an education in saw blades by my friend Ernie Searing, and learning just how versatile the correct rip blade can be for not only ripping but crosscutting as well, I decided that I’d start taking a look at my band saw blade. I get tired of changing blades all the time, and I was looking for that perfect combination of a clean speedy cut, both ripping and crosscutting, no burning, no fighting the blade, and quiet smooth operation. I thought the Highland Woodworking's Wood...
