Does anyone want to review these?I bought one for my 17”Grizzly and really like it for tight cuts in wood up to 2”.I have trouble cutting 3” and thicker stock as the bottom of the cut isnt lined up with the top of the cut.Do I need more tension or is this a characteristic of the stabilizer?The best feature is that blade changes now take seconds.

In my opinion, the Carter stabilizer was not intended for real thick stock. Some extra tension might help, but you can only go so far without risking a broken blade or damage to your tires.
