Cool blocks
The cool blocks that I purchase work just right on my bandsaw. So I purchase three more sets for future use.

Great Value - Beats JET OEM
So far, so good. They sure beat the cheap plastic blocks that came with the Jet saw. Now I can actually cut a decent kerf. Better installation instructions with the cool blocks than those provided in the manual from Jet.

Cool cool blocks
I had cool blocks, actually rods, in a small bench-top band saw for many years. I just retired that saw, bought a new, larger floor model and just installed cool block in it yesterday.

The blade tracks well and cuts straight right from the beginning thanks, I believe, to the cool blocks. I'm very pleased with them and they perform very well, just as I expected.

I have found that these blocks last much longer than the stock phenolic blocks that came with my Jet bandsaw, I would recommend them to my friends...

band saw tune up
After replacing the Jet stock blade guides with the Olson cool blocks and a new Olson blade, my band saw is cutting like a champ. I'm cutting wood, aluminum and lexan with very clean and true results. For the price, a good buy with good results. Tom

My saw runs quieter smoother
Simple to install. Much better than my factory blocks or the makeshift ones I made from Maple. These run smooth and quiet. I should have done this nearly a year ago.

Less conductive heat to the saw blade.
Joel J on Dec 1, 2016
We just installed the ceramic blocks, yet our band saw handles the smaller diameter circle differently than before; these may allow the blade to work better.
