Well, a little file work, and the replacement is done and fits quite nicely.

I get that it’s not Grizzly’s fault, but it makes the bandsaw less attractive as a tool if replacement parts aren’t readily available.

It’s the same as things that are put together with pentalobe fasteners or Stanley’s wacky threads I can’t buy a tap & die for. The hassle of dealing with them detracts from the tool, even if it’s otherwise great. 

May you have the day you deserve!
