Default Crapsman 12" Band Saw Blade guides

I need help either making or buying blade guides for my Craftman Band saw. The stock guides are utter crap. Has anyone built a better set of guides or have found a better set on line? If so I could use some help. thanks

Carter makes great guides for most makes & models of bandsaws including a Craftsman 12". I don't know if this is your exact bandsaw, but here's a link to their page for it. You might give them a call to confirm if these guides will fit your saw.

You might also try Iturra Design. Don't know if they have anything for Craftsman, but they are strictly bandsaw people and may be able to help. They don't have a web presence, so here is their contact info.

Phone: 904-642-2802
Snail Mail: 4636 Fulton Rd, Jacksonville, FL 32225-1332

By the way, their catalog is a fantastic education in all things bandsaw.

Hope this helps,

Here are some comments about obtaining the Iturra Design catalog referred to above: **** PDF for 2013 catalog

Don't ASK ... I might lie. Don't TELL me ... Iíll forget. But if you SHOW me I might remember; and if you INVOLVE me Iíll probably get it.

Sadly, those links to the .pdf seem to be out of date. I'd like to obtain a copy myself (also having recently acquired a free Craftsman 12" and stand).
