Wow, what a beast. Guard is a must for that guy. This should be interesting. Worked in a shop years back that had a 14” joiner. Had a standard spring loaded guard over the work area of the knives. A fabricated piece of sheet metal was attached with wing nuts to the fence for when the fence was out at the front of the joiner to protect at the back of the fence, but 24”, wow. Might want to google something and see what’s out there.

I think a guard that swings out like most jointer guards would would be too heavy to be practical, the thing would be huge. Perhaps a 4” to 6” wide strip of 3/8 clear plastic is more practical. You could mount it centered over the cutter head with a vertical rod at each end to allow height adjustment and use knobs on each end to lock it in place. Though you’d have to reach over it I don’t think it would be in the way, it would definitely keep you from passing your hands over the cutterhead. That would provide the protection you need and be much easier to fabricate. I wish I could draw on this thing, the ideas are flowing hope you can see it.
