You definitely need to use more caution with the ceramic guides, you do not want the teeth contacting the guides, it will destroy the blade and maybe the guides instantly.

Where did you hear that? The guides are there to “guide” the blade. The blade is going to always come in contact with the guides every time you use it, otherwise, there wouldn’t be a need for guides of any type. The guides are either touching or are spaced about a dollar bill’s distance from the blade. The rear guide will contact the blade every time you push a board through the saw as it also should only have a slight gap between it and the blade. Every time you use the saw the blade will come in contact with the guides. Also, since teeth should be forward of the guides the teeth will not touch the guides.
