Okay…I just installed a set of Carter’s on my bandsaw last night (20 inch delta, C frame), and a couple of test cuts indicate that they may hold up to their claim.

They seem pretty light duty compared to the origional J-plate guides…..but I believe the saw is going to track nicer.

I’m a week away from giving them a healthy workout.

Anyone have a comment on the carter guides ?

Thanks JB

Can you post a picture of them? Curious how they are different from my PM. My guides are huge and easy to adjust, seems to hold everything right where it needs to be.

I installed the guides a few weeks ago an it has made a world of difference.
Their claim that fence adjustments for drift are a thing of the past is true!
