First you have to find out if it is one inset that is tight or both, or they may fit fine, and they swelled to push in or out. Once you know exactly what the problem is, You can adjust with hand tools as discribed above, of if the runners are square to the side of the sled you can trim them with the table saw. (You have to be careful with this, we are talking microscopic amounts)

UHMWP works well as an alternative to wood also, (but I usually use wood, and they work perfectly in winter but when the summer humidity comes they stick, or the other way round and are sloppy in winter)

Go slowly and have fun,

-- nice recovery, They should pay extra for that mistake, Eric E.
