Thanks folks,

As a newbie, not on a schedule, I take a good amount of time prepping for each cut. I recently ordered 30 BF of very expensive hardwood (Macacauba) for a closet organizer project, so I will definitely setup each cut into that wood. I found some Poplar on ebay that I am using to practice cuts when I started noticing what a pain the guard is. Crosscuts don’t seem to be a problem, but the 1/2” rip cuts I really want to see the blade.

Mio, I really like that Guard-dustcollector—That will become my next project if not sooner.
