I also use the Carter on my band saw.I use 1/8" to 1/2" blades and with no bottom guide needed,James I'm sure they will have one that will work on your band saw..
Yep, it is on the net... On Carters web site...Hi James
You must have seen that on the NET, it's not always the truth what they say on the NET, like they say LOL I always push it or to say I always try it to the max.. LOL and it's works for me,I don't like changing blades but the Carter makes easy and quick..........because of no bottom guide is used....

"Carter's revolutionary patented Stabilizer® band saw guide provides excellent stability and unmatched versatility when cutting with blades ¼" or less in width. Simply slip the Stabilizer® in the slot normally occupied by your saw's side support block holder, or if you own or are purchasing a Carter full guide kit then it's just as easy as sliding out the upper guide and in the Stabilizer® and you're ready to cut."

I'm trying to figure out how you go to a 1" blade on a 14" Grizzly (only by the use of their guides) and not have the back of the blade hanging off the tires..."The Grizzly 14" conversion kit updates your saws performance through the use of model 2300 all sealed ball bearing roller guides. This provides your saw with reduced blade friction, improved cutting accuracy, and is adjustable for blade widths from 1/8" to 1""
Well, because its recommended for use with 1/4" or less, doesn't necessarily mean it won't work with wider blades I guess. Don't think it will increase the blade capacity of the saw though.. that one does seem rather strange.Duane-
But Carter says also says of their 14" Grizzly conversion kits:
