Removing the Old Guides
With your tools ready, begin by removing the old guides from your machine. Unscrew the screws holding them in place and carefully remove them from their housings. Clean off any excess dust or debris around the installation area with a soft cloth or brush, as this will facilitate the new guide installation.

Installing the New Guides
Now, install your new guide conversion kit from Guidekits.com, which comes with the assurance of quality products and same-day free shipping. Line up each guide with its designated holes in the housing and secure it with the provided screws. Ensure each guide is snugly but not overly tightened. Use a level to verify proper alignment before turning on the machine. Finally, insert and tighten all bolts with an adjustable wrench, taking care not to overtighten, which could damage your machine and new guides.
Testing It Out
Test your newly installed guide conversion kit by turning on your machine and adjusting its speed accordingly (usually between 1-3 RPMs). Slowly lower the blade onto some scrap wood or cardboard, ensuring proper tracking before cutting anything valuable. If all looks good, you have successfully installed your guide conversion kit!
