TRI-STAR METALS, INC. was incorporated in 1987 for the purpose of distributing specialty steel bars, forgings and seamless rolled rings to industrial customers, a business the company still pursues today.

In the early 1990’s a speciality steel customer asked Edward E Belfiglio for some metallurgical advice on saw guides for their line of industrial wood cutting band saws. Within a few days Ed came up with a new guide system. The “Ram Jet” de-dusting guide system was born. Mr. Belfiglio immediately applied for a patent which was granted in 2002.

Knowing that there were many other band saw manufactures, TSMI decided to pursue the aftermarket saw guide business, and developed the “Ram Jet” de-dusting guide and replaceable insert guide for almost every brand of saw on the market. TSMI started advertising and soon developed a successful business in saw guides to the aftermarket as well as original equipment manufacturers. TSMI guides are produced in our own machine shop.
