1/4 round cool blocks
The advertisement states that these will fit "Old 12" Craftsman"...almost. The cool block saw assembly is slightly smaller than the round cool blocks, so...I drilled the aluminum assembly hole to .250, still too tight...used an E or F letter bit and it fit perfectly. After adjusting the blocks and the bearing stops , the performance was extremely pleasing. My old craftsman is cutting better that it has in a couple of years. Smooth, silent and true. Can't believe I waited so long to upgrade.
In my bandsaw it was to small and needed to be shimmed to properly meet the blade. Either a cupped shim needs to be added or make them a little larger.
Keep it cool
The Cool Blocks Bandsaw Blade Guide Round Block Size 1/4" work good to keep yor bandsaw blade cool, so it won't get dull faster and the blade wont burn your wood.
My bandsaw is VERY old. These cool blocks led to better cuts immediately!
