To increase the throat capacity of my bandsaw, I designed two blade guides to replace those provided with the saw.The new guides twist the blade outward 25¡, as is done on a metal cutoff saw.The guides were made from maple and fitted with three 5/8-in.
ball bearings held in place with screws.Two of the bearings act as the side guides, and the third is the back-up bearing for the blade.Of course the guides had to be designed within the limitations and characteristics of the bandsaw.
The results were gratifying; I can now crosscut a 10-in.board without the board hitting the bandsaw's column...
