Hi there, can anyone recommend a ball bearing guide kit for the BS400? Axminster do 3 different guide kits but when I asked them if they fitted the BS400 they said 'no'.

I don't mind doing some minor mods to make something that's adaptable to the BS400. The original disc guides are doing my head in... they either pinch the blade and slow it down / heat it up, or let it wander all over the place.

Any suggestions gratefully received.

Thanks

Look at the guides for the later Sabre bandsaws, when I get round to it I will only be changing the top set as they do all the work. Also Record sell the sabre fence as an upgrade for the BS range. There has been a lengthy topic on guide mods on here recently, so do a search, it was started by @MikeK.

ok thanks I will take a look - apols for not finding that earlier.

Edit: Actually I did see that one but as it's regarding a BS350 I am not sure how useful it will be. I'll have a long read of it anyway. Thanks
