Billerica, MA, August 2016: RIKON Power Tools announces the NEW Tool-less Blade Guide Retrofit System, Model #10-900, for their 14” Bandsaws.
RIKON Power Tools Inc., a leading manufacturer of woodworking machinery, announces the launch of its New Tool-less Blade Guide Retrofit System #10-900 for their line of woodworking 14” bandsaws.
RIKON’s Kit includes these Tool-less Guides for replacing a bandsaw’s upper and lower side and rear thrust bearing assemblies, blade guards, guard height scale and complete instructions on installation and use.
The NEW Retrofit Kit, Model # 10-900, will convert RIKON’s #10-324 and former #10-325 14” Bandsaws to this Tool-less Blade Guide System. Additional models of Retrofit Kits for RIKON machines are slated for introduction in the future.
MSRP: $149.99. Available early October 2016.
These Innovative, Patent-Pending Guides make the setting of their precision ball bearing guides a fast & easy process – no wrenches are needed! Setting the guides takes just seconds. With just a turn of the large knobs, the bearings are freed of their previous positions. Internal springs that push on the rear bearing mounting posts will automatically force the bearings safely away from the bandsaw blade. Then, by pushing on the guides’ rear posts or even using the knobs themselves, the bearings can be moved into your desired spot next to the blade and secured in position by a twist of the same knobs. The simplicity of this blade guide system is a feature that every woodworker will appreciate! The ball bearing guides are favored over ceramic guides as they reduce heat building friction, increase blade life and contribute to the smooth operation of the machine during cuts.
