I am sorry there seems to be no way to CLOSE the lower side bearings anywhere close to the blade on this saw. They seem to be set like an 8th of an inch away from the blade. They are nothing like the upper guides.

Any help?

I think I may know what is going on. I pasted a photo from the owners manual of the UPPER assembly below to help explain a solution…...Each of the guide bearings are attached to a shaft that is eccentric… The issue may be that at the factory they assembled the Guide Bearings in the “UP” position…... Loosen Locking Cap Screw a fair amount, but not too much…...Then use the hex wrench and insert it into the left Guide Bearing Cap Screw and turn counterclockwise until the bearing rotates on the eccentric shaft downward…...Then use the hex wrench on the right Guide Bearing Cap Screw and rotate clockwise until the bearing rotates on the eccentric shaft downward…....By doing this this will lower both bearings against the blade and give clearance to adjust without removing the table in the future…...Once both bearings are lowered, then tighten the Locking Cap Screw until snug, then you will be able to fine turn the left and right bearing until they are perfect. Then tighten down the Locking Cap Screw. You may need two wrenches to prevent the bearings from moving. Insert one wrench into the bearing screw to hold it’s position, then use the other to tighten the Locking Cap Screw…..
