Band Saw

Picture shows guide pins for post.  From what I have researched, the grizzly H3051 Kit should fit perfectly.

As far I can i tell from internet research this is a 1987 Summit 14" bandsaw.  Today it seems this the Harbor Freight predecessor the 32208.  The unknown Taiwanese company that originally makes these rebranded it for many other  brands.  Also from looking around, it seems JET/Grizzly might actually use the same basic parts.

This is a work in progress and will be updated as this project progresses.

Talked to tech support.  They were very helpful and very quick with replying to inquiries. They sent me some measured drawings of the bearing guides I'd like to use.  Since this saw is kind of unknown it took a little looking around.   Found that the bearing guides are the exact same as a JET bandsaw,  so that makes this a JET clone.  Even the throat plates are the same as JET.  They could be the same as grizzly too, but I haven't found what size grizzly uses. 

Along with buying new guides, I got a stabilizer and if you haven't seen one of these you don't know what your missing.  Watch Alex demo that here. 

Also got a cobra spring.  I bought this on a whim, but I hope it helps as the original spring is almost 26 Years old.  Should help with tensioning the bigger riser blades.

The grizzly riser block fits, barely.  Had to lightly grind out the holes as the goes are just a hair too far apart. Now the guide pins don't line up perfectly, so the block is about 1/10" off.   But since the other pins are off too, the top part of the C frame will line up just where is supposed to. The blade guard bar fits and works perfectly.
