That's pretty slick, Kevin. A little dob of Pliobond under the foot ahead of time would make a nice guide foot cushion, too, as Pliobond always stays somewhat flexible. I'll bet a guy needs some pretty narrow rubber bands, though, for those 6/8/10 guides.  Cheesy

Thanks! You can definitely find small ones. I use tape a lot too. I use this technique for tiny guides like micro guides.
Always nice to be aware of different options...never know when you need to pull something out of your bag of tricks!

I hope this helps you out! I have another video I'm working on right now and hope to upload today about a tool you may want to take a look at if you are replacing a lot of guides. Makes removing the old epoxy super easy.
I'll be sure to post it here after I get it up on YouTube.

Another small and narrow helper is a couple wraps of elastic thread,  easy to pull and tie, sacrificial, availave in sewing stores.  Guttmann is my favorite.  Hope this helps someone. Wink
