Hi, I watched the YouTube video on changing your bandsaw guides to a Stabilizer.
Only for thin blades of 1/4” and less.
The bottom guides are not used at all, just moved out of the way !
The blade is pre-tensioned by moving the guide about 1/8” or so forward then re adjusting the top wheel so the blade gullet runs central.
I was intrigued so decided to make my own, as I already had some ball races and aluminium etc. Took about a day.
Well, pretty pleased so far with a 1/8” blade that’s fitted at the mo.
Seems weird not having bottom guides, but seems to work ok. We shall see ….
