When cutting free-hand with the shaper, I have the problem of the wood burning on the guide. Do you know of any place they sell bearings to replace guides?

Freud U.S.A. offers ball bearing guides for shaper bits. In their catalog they list the ball bearing guides as ball bearing rub collars. They come in various sizes for both the inside and the oidside diameters. Unfortunately, they are not cheap. costing from $35.00 to $40.00 each. For more information, contact: Freud U.S.A., 218 Feld Ave., High Point, NC 27264. Toll-free phone: 1-800-334-2505.
