If these bushings are getting that hot, then you may have the wrong speed or a non-optimum blade. The blade pitch (number of teeth per inch) must be lower the thicker the wood is. If there are too many teeth trying to cut at the same time you have to push harder to get enough pressure to cut and that puts more force on the guide bushings. There are a variety of pitches available even for the narrower scrolling blades. If you have to move up to a wider blade, there is a little trick to help you cut a slightly smaller scroll radius - round off the back side of the blade with a sharpening stone.
Also, with oak, you may need to use a slower speed to keep the blade from heating up - although a hot blade will show up as more of a problem with the lower guide bushings only. Your saw might have multiple steps on the pulleys, allowing you to move the belt to a slower speed.
I hope this helps. Thanks for using Fixya. Good luck!
