Wear and tear happens
I would have put an underwrap on that double foot guide to try to avoid finish lifting under guide
The application was a bit shaky gup
You can make a home made tool rest for your forearm ya know what I mean.
Guides look in great shape

Don’t dump that
You can strip down carefully with single edge razor and re wrap
Time consuming. But it’s winter.
