    HELP! Harbor Freight Bandsaw Rollers!

    I'm dying without this things. I need the blade guides for the HF 4" 6" metal cutting band saw. I can ONLY find replacement/upgrade parts for the 14" wood saw.


    I tried some shit on ebay that was listed as correct, way to small. ... .


    Anyone have any ideas? I had seen that its the same nit as the Grizzly one, but it looks like they have an upgraded unit now and i cant find the rollers for that either.

    I could try just measuring and ordering bearings, but there is a taper to them that is not on a standard bearing and may be important.


    Help appreciated y'all.

    Man you gotta give us a little more to work with. Pictures? Band saw model?

    I’m sure we could find or fab something that would work for you.

      Ya . Not much detail there.

      It's the roller guides that the band rolls on. Two sides and a center, top and bottom. The bearings shit and the rollers seized. Now it just pitches the band.

      I'll get more details when I get back to the shop

          Looks like normal bearings. What taper are you referring to? Wonder if an owners manual would show a parts diagram and part numbers?

            Andy, if you can measure the bearings they are common sealed bearings you can pick up off amazon and usually just some spacers that the captive screws use to keep them in alignment and in place. I doubt these are the bearings you need but maybe a head start in figuring out how to determine the dimensions you need to order.

              Often HF only references their part # but just not sure if that will be helpful.

                Out camp til Monday night. I can check my 4x6 saw then. Might be pretty close to the same. Also, I have a nice blade that I can recommend.

                  Go to the HF site and look under the model of saw in question.
                  Owners manual and part diagram should be available in PDF format.
                  Not trying to be a smart a$$ but if everything else fails read the instructions.

                    I looked on the site. It looked to me like a single PDF for EVERYTHING they sell parts for. I looked quick and couldn't find what I needed. On top of that, these failed from HF within 6 months. If I can get them not from harbor freight (which I have heard takes months and ships from china) I would be very happy.

                    I was hoping someone else already had the same issue and/or has a solution.

                      Bearings usually have a ID or part# stamped on them as shown in rpcraft provided picture.
                      If not you will need measurements.
                      Contact a industrial supply business or bearing specialty house in your area.
