Comment Re:Not so great (Score 1) 471

I have a general saw, and it takes me seconds to take the guard on and off. It takes a lot longer to switch from my regular blade to the dado set. There are also a lot of aftermarket splitters that cost less than an overhead guard (the merlin splitter, the bies, etc). Plus you can get the penn state industries overarm guard for $250.

Also, your contention that the $500 dollar guard is too expensive is misguided, the price of a saw stop saw is something like $2800 dollars. For that much money, I can almost buy a European style sliding table saw.

The only thing that bugs me about my splitter is that I can't use it with my crosscut sled, but I'm working on a design to fix that now.
