>I was putting a set of Carter roller guides on my band saw this afternoon and when I dropped the rod that holds the upper guides the !@#$%^*()_ steel ball fell out. What a pain in the butt that was. I did find it OK with the help of a old speaker.

What makes this so bad is that this is the second time I have done this. The first time was when I was putting a riser block on the saw a coupkle of years ago. You would think I would have rememberd waht happened thi first time.

So if you ever have the chance to work on the upper guide rod on your bans saw "try" to remember the steel ball. Yopu may not be as lucky as I was and find it both times.
