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 ?

There are two knobs on your blade guide that loosen the assembly. One should allow you to adjust the side bearings and the other the rear. It’s hard to tell from the pictures above, but it does look like you are limited on how far forward you can adjust the side guides.

It’s likely that the manufacturer did not expect the saw to carry a re-saw blade that large….but it could just be the angle these photos are taken… Here’s a photo of how the assembly should look after its realigned.

And this is a pretty good vid that explains how to set them up…even though he is using a different blade guide system.
