I have to admit, my blade guard rarely sees any use. However, I do have a splitter installed.

I want to be clear for any inexperienced table saw users out there: If you have the type of saw where the blade guard also functions as the splitter, you should NOT remove it unless you install a splitter that attaches to a zero-clearance insert, or a similar safety device to avoid have the wood pinch the blade.
