I swear I tried that same thing, but the guard didn't act like it would
slide. There was a backet holding the guard onto the housing. Maybe some
trick to lowering the guard and then sliding back. From the design it
looks like something like that was intended.
I don't want to ruin this chopmaster blade so I'm taking it off when I
don't know what I'm going to be cutting. :)
I have that saw. I've only changed the blade out once and didn't have to
take of the guard. The guard needs to be held all the way back as I recall.
There is a procedure outlined in the manual - but since I'm at work I cannot
for the life of me remember the actual procedure. But I do remember that I
did not have to take anything off the saw.
