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.

You do not need to replace guides, just re-adjust so that you keep the guides behind the gullet of the blade.
Your blade is still centered in the wheel, so when you change from 3/4—>1/4 you will need to move the guides back or they will take the set and sharpness out of the teeth.

Carter is trying to sell you stuff… there stuff is good, but definitely not necessary.
