What type of blade guide is best for small blades on a bandsaw ? Answered
I have a new powermatic 14" bandsaw with roller guides and a 3/8" blade. I would like to use a 3/16" or 1/8" blade but have heard something about "rolling out" the teeth on the blade if I use roller bearing blade guides. I assume this is due to the small size of the blade and it winding up between the rollers ( the teeth that is). Would block type guides be better or will the "carter" type roller bearing guides, properly adjusted, be OK ?
