I am no expert but from my reading I think your guides are setup wrong. My thinking is your side guide rollers need to be just below the gulit of the blade. If you can t adjust it that way maybe dual rollers.

I hope some of the experts will chime in here.

Hmmmmm. You’re kidding! I don’t think these guides move up and down. Is it possible to add a pic to show what you mean ?

Are Aftermarket guides like from Carter an option?

I don t see Craftex listed – but they do custom stuff as well as the fact that there just aren t that many ways to put a guide block on a post that goes up and down.

They may say “the craftex, uses the same guide as the XYZ… so this kit will do it”

Thanks a lot. This has certainly opened my eyes to new possibilities.
