Detailed Description

Cool Blocks Phenolic Guides for Bandsaws

Cool Blocks are made to replace the original metal guide blocks which came with many older bandsaws. Made of composite phenolic resin impregnated with graphite, they set closer to your blade than metal blocks, giving a more stable and accurately guided cut. Cool Blocks eliminate friction and heat caused by metal to metal contact so blades run smoother, cooler and far quieter than with metal guides. Cool Blocks help to extend the life of your bandsaw blades.

Cool block Selection

Please check the shape ≈ size ofr your blocks and compare to teh chart below to make sure you get the correct Cool Blocks for your bandsaw. If you are unsure, please call us.

Please note that if your saw came with roller bearing side guides, you cannot “upgrade” to Cool Blocks because your saw has side guide mounts for mounting bearings and is not designed to accept “block” guides.
