I have the same BS, yes you will need the Carter saw guides, the ones Felder uses suck big time. I have not upgraded mine, but I cuss them every time I use it.

The BS has a scale for up to 1 3/8” blade tension, I have used 1” blades on it with no trouble.

Blade choice is up to you, I can only get cheap blades here in Mexico.

The fence is pretty good, between the two I would go with the extension tables, but to be honest you can make them yourself, no need to pay Felder for a cheap piece of aluminum when you can make them from wood with an end support.
