I had a pm 14 inch bandsaw I regret sell it because it was good saw. The only complaint I had are the guides were bearing style. If I cut a lot of pitchy wood they coated the bearings very time consuming to clean them.
One day I just decided to leave off the lower guide bearings.
The saw cut just fine without them.
I used to also have a laguna 16 inch bandsaw with ceramic guides I like they way they scraped the blade pitchy wood didn’t affect anything.
My point you can probably run your lower guides out from the blade and see no difference in the cut. If you start seeing pitch building up then make them close.
Good Luck
