I'm using an Axminster 350, fitted with their bolt-on bearing guide
set on the upper guide only. It's not a good guide set, it doesn't
fit the saw well and I've long abandoned using it on the bottom.
For straight cutting with 1/2" or 3/8" blades this all works well.
But I've just destroyed _another_
1/4" blade owing to a bearing-jump
and a bent blade. I should have re-fitted the Cool Block guides, as
I'd do for using blades narrower than 1/4".
What is a practical limit on using narrow blades with bearings ? How
narrow can you go ? Is this inherent to bearings, or are better
guides more flexible than cheap ones ?
