: Blade guards are often poorly designed. The previous saw I
: had the blade guard worked so poorly I had to take it off to get
: anything done.
I suspect that this is because of a poor regulation (OSHA) that says that
the guard must be self-adjusting. It must be very difficult to adjust one
that works well for each and every one of a variety of timber sizes.
UK health & safety regulation is less restrictive.
More about guards on my web site. Please see 'Circular Sawbench Safety'.
