I plan a totally different dust control and splitter arrangement on my table saw. It is about half way done. But for the time being, I am stuck with the old guard. I modified that guard and splitter so I can literally take it off or put it on in under 30 seconds, usually about 20 seconds. That way, I always use the guard when it is feasible to use it. Needless to say, it requires no tools. I didn’t buy anything….....just used a couple of knobs I had in the shop. My saw is an old Delta Contractor’s saw with the bulky guard and splitter with pawls.

On my super sled, I have a stop, so that the sled is stopped before the blade can come through the bury block. This involved attaching a stop on the side of the saw, and having a stop on the sled.

Making safety easy, is a part of being safe.
