  • Shark Guard Blade Guard and DC on 3650

    Wonder if any members have the shark guard on their Ridgid 3650 and would share how you see it as a better solution outside of DC over the standard guard and splitter system.

    I bet that if you went on the WoodNet Forums you'd get some answers.

      did not even know what a "shark gaurd" was untill I jsut looked it up, my guard is jsut like the one Norm Abram used in his show, it looks like if you want a guard it could be a better than average unit,

        I don't own but looking at it on their website I can see no distinctive advantage that their blade guard and splitter offer over the one that came with the saw. As you stated, the dust port is a plus but I'm not sure if that particular feature is worth the pushing $200 price tag.

          There were one or two who had the Shark Guard on their 3650 who were on this forum a while back. I don't remember who they were but if you do some searches on Shark Guard they should turn up. But save yourself some aggrevation and use Google to search the Ridgid forums, the forum search engine is broke and no one want sto fix it it seems.

          In the google search box, type

          ridgidforum sharkguard

          and see what you get.

            Very popular item. I would buy an overarm guard instead, however. Check out excalibur overarm guards.

              True. I had talked to Lee about an overarm system a few years back when I had my 3650.
