Thanks in advance for the help,
For Fathers day I received a Makita 2708.
I was using it tonight to make a stand for the wife’s iPad in the kitchen and had a kickback. FYSA I took an old red 2×6 and cut a 4×7 from it and began routing a 15 degree notch out. Tomorrow I’ll sand and patina the block. It’s looking like it will come out nice.
…back to the story. It doesn’t have a blade guard or riving knife. I’m trying to figure out the best and most cost affective way to make it safer. The OEM blade guard is $90. A portable table from Rosseau costs around $200 and has a guard. I don’t know if those guards include a riving knife and if it’s separate from the guard.
I’m hoping someone can show me the best way ahead to make this saw something safe to use.
