Band Saw Cool Blocks
Ridgid 14 Bandsaw
For most 14" Band Saws including Sears Craftsman 14", Jet, Grizzly, Ridgid. Cool Blocks blade guides are made from a high tech, non-metallic composite material, "Graphite Impregnated Phenolic Laminate" which contains three synthetic dry lubricants that lubricate the blade but do not make it oily. The metal to metal contact made by old metal guide blocks creates heat and friction which cause premature blade wear and breakage.
