I got a bunch of 'em at Sears, lo these many years ago. Don't know if they
still have them, though...

Nobody ever left footprints in the sands of time by sitting on his butt.
And who wants to leave buttprints in the sands of time?
To cover my handsaw blades, I've been using vinyl undersill - it's for
vinyl siding when you cut the top nailer off & need to finish it off &
stiffen it. It comes in 10' sections & I used to just pick up an extra
scrap off a job. I actually had to go out & buy a piece for $3 or so a
few years back. Still have enough for a couple of saws left.
Not all of it is made exactly the same. Look around a little & try to
get the tighter version, if you can. Some is a little boxy & doesn't
grip the blade quite as well.
BTW all, Highland hardware delivered the guards nicely but pretty slowly!
Ordered on the 3rd, got them on the 12th. They are thick and soft, bendy,
easy to cut to size (did it with a chisel), and a bit hard and slow to slide on.
Not supremely worth it for the munee.
