My saw is retrofitted with the Carter bearing guides. I like them. Before, I used milled sticks of oil soaked oak as guides. Cheaper and maybe better than steel or ceramic. Certainly easier on smaller blades. I could set then fairly tight against the smaller blades and the blade would cut it’s own groove. Handy for tight curves.
