It turns out my drift problems were related only to a poor blade. Once I installed a 3/4” Wood Slicer and positioned the teeth just outboard of the top tire this machine now resaws beautifully!

Next question. On a MM16, can a 1/4” blade be used for small radius work without changing the existing guides?
The folks at Carter suggest replacing my guides with Stabalizers for bandsaw boxes, ect.

Good to hear!, I run the 3/4” WS and really like it.
When I use a 1/4” blade I typically back off the side guides completely since I’m intending on doing curves.

I have bearing guides and they are a bit fat to be used anyway. The standard euro guides are too quirky for me.
