Hello, I have a 14 inch Rikon bandsaw that for the most part I am happy with. I ordered a set of Carter guides as the original that Rikon supplied are grossly under designed and tedious to adjust. The installation of the upper guide was simple. I removed the table trunion and table to get better access to install the carter guides. Following their photos there is interference with the table trunion and I cannot get the bearings in the proper relationship to the blade. Wondered if anyone else worked through this?

Thank
Tom

I have that model & changed to the Carter guides, also bought & have the stabilizer for use with bandsaw boxes. It’s been a while since I got them (3-4 years), but I do not recall any issues getting the lower guides in. I am sure I did not removed table & trunion.
Sorry I can’tr be of more help.
You may wish to contact tech support at Carter &/or Rikon.

You, might want to call them. I know there was a difference based on the 14” model. I have the C-Man 14” version that only has the 7” resaw. I picked the wrong ones at a show, they sent the correct ones and a return label for the other set after talking with them. I do not remember if that was the issue or not. Dan
