  2. This was a short but concise demonstration on how to adjust bandsaw blade guides. The only problem I see is that these guides appear to be the Laguna aftermarket guides which, unfortunately ,are extremely overpriced. They cost almost as much as many woodworkers paid for their bandsaws( $300.00 and up) Not really affordable in most woodworkers budgets. I can afford them but will not purchase them just on principle alone, especially when you can purchase the ceramic ones for the more common 14 inch bandsaws for around $20.00

  3. I purchased a feeler gauge just for setting up my tools and keep it on a magnet on my band saw about 5:00 at an auto parts store.
