    Your welcome, I found out the hard way after removing the lower knuckle on the 3rd finger with a weird kickback and a dado blade . Got it fixed but its a bit shorter and doesnt bend. All in all very lucky. I am always careful with that saw and had used it for years before the accident. If I had this guard on it my finger would have hit the guard and not the blade. You will find it is a PITA to change the blade now but so much safer.

        I was born with tools in my crib. Started using power tools early on. I was a journeyman trim carpenter for 8 years. Blade guards on RAS and TS are dangerous. Take them off and throw them away.
        IMHO. Yes I have all my fingers!

        Good luck to all

          That is one of the most irresponsible statements I have ever seen on any woodworking forum. If it works for you fine, but there are a lot of new woodworkers that read these forums looking for advice. Read any book on table saws and you will see that that is terrible advice!

          USE YOUR GUARDS!
