SOURCE: I broke the lower blade guide
All I could find out is that your skil bandsaw is made by the Bosch Bench tool co in Mount Prospect, Il. The owners manual from skil shows the part you need as #6 lower blade guide, and Lowes does handle this line of Skil. I would suggest contacying Lowes or the store you bought this from and getting the consumer help phone number from them. They have to have this part available as I am seeing a lot of these units refurbished, so someone has the parts to them. Hope this helps and good luck. Marvin

You probably just need to track the blade, pull all the guides back away from the blade and free wheel it by hand, tilt the blade into the center of the tires, if it doesn't center on both, one of them is off. When it centers, torque it up a little, then adjust the guides to the blade, don't push the blade out, just barely touch it, then it should track and cut straight. Good luck. Does this machine have a transmission for metal cutting? Or just one speed?

On the side of the saw in the center of the blade, there should be a bolt to remove that will get the blade off. Some saws have a special wrench needed to remove it, but since you have a Skil, you should be able to use either a 1/2" or 9/16" wrench or socket to take it loose and switch the blade out for one of your choice. Hope that helps.
