To produce an accurate cut, blade guides need to prevent lateral motion, twisting, and deflection. These upper and lower guide sets provide support at three points (on both sides of the blade and directly behind it) above and below the table. Made from steel and aluminum with fully sealed industrial-grade bearings, they are usable with blades from 1/8" to 1" wide.
Side bearings have two advantages over rub blocks: they are more durable, eliminating the need for frequent guide adjustments, and they significantly reduce friction, prolonging blade life. Installation is straightforward (instructions and hardware included) and readjustments after blade changes are quick and easy. An excellent upgrade.
