After one year of use the stripper guide and the following guide are having issues. Not even really sure how to explain, looks like epoxy starting to crack towards the top. What could cause this?

The guide flexes with the blank.  Those small pieces of finish discolored and wiggled free from the guide "legs".  If you put the finish there intentionally this is a good reason why not to apply finish up the guides.

Thanks in the future would you suggest just going up to the end of thread with the epoxy and stop there? And not apply epoxy in front of the guide?

Exactly.  Stop the thread a few mm's from where the leg begins  This will prevent the finish from creeping up the legs while spinning on the dryer.  as you can see from this experience,  the extra finish causes more issues than solves...

Absolutely. Way too much finish there.

Finish the way you always do - then use wax-free dental floss to remove excess finish from the tunnel area.
