I was looking at pictures of shops posted by LJ members. I was amazed at how few pictures including table saws showed tools with blade guards installed.

Good observation Bill, It has always bothered Me about most of the saws out there(some acceptions) How unpractical they make the guard operation ! I have modified My Unisaw guard and it is much easier to remove/install but still could be done better I think ( In the process of making an Independent swing arm guard that will work with majority of TS cutting operations). You would think with as much as these TS can cost that a good,practical blade guard would be included ! Just something else to bitch about I guess, LOL !
