Default Old Craftsman horz bandsaw blade guide

Well I think Cutter is rubbing off on me. A while back I was at a country Blacksmiths for something ? anyway he was griping about a old Craftsman 4x6 horz. saw on a nice angle iron frame he was using. It would not cut any where near square. I asked did he want to sell it. He quickly replied, 'give me $25 and get it out of my sight'. I complied with his request and left. I just had to have the little guy Upon later investigation it appeared a snap ring had come off one of the blade guide roller shafts, letting the roller fall off. I dont know where to get parts other than Sears and I think they want $28+ shpg ea. Well being the Atlas lathe is running thought this might be something I could machine. It measures .975 od. x .430 tk w/ a .240 bore solid material. I dont know if I need a special material. I was thinking about turning a piece of 1" cr bar, drill the bore, part off a !/2" piece and face both sides. What do you Guys think. BTW did Atlas build this Saw? The tag says 101.22022.

Widetrack, are you sure of that model #? I just entered it into the Sears database and got nothing.

Can you post pictures of it?

or is it like the one in this picture?

I used to have one of those, it was my first bandsay. It replaced a sears back and forth job. The only trouble I ever has was the control valve for the hydraulic cylinder required constant attention.

The 101 signifies an Atlas built item.

The one in the picture is a Sears 108.22920 according to the data plate.
Off the top of my head, I don't remember who manufactured it or if I even knew.
108 is not listed in the index I found on OWWM.

I found some other pictures that should help decide whether we're talking about the same saws.

1. 2 & 3. Do your blade guides look like these?

4. And here is the cylinder.

The reason I'm interested in whether the guides are the same is these are small ball bearings. If that's what your's had then I would take one of the others to a local bearing store to see what they say.
