I took a shot of my guides (Carter) on my MM16:

I bought these guides second hand a number of years ago and really like them versus the originals (Euro).
They are sturdy, although could be better designed in my opinion.

Some people swear by the Euro style guides, others like me think they leave a lot to be desired.

This photo shows my usual setup with a 3/4” Wood Slicer. I made some dual side bearing extensions (the Carter price was just too crazy).

You should be able to run a 1/4” blade easily with these guides (the single side bearing version). I keep a 1/4” blade on a smaller 14” saw so I never need to put a small blade on my MM16.

I have considered switching to the Laguna ceramic guides but the Carters are keeping me happy for now.
