    Default Tablesaw Blade Guard

    I'm looking for recommendations or ideas for aftermarket or DIY plans to improve my ordinary blade guard that came with my tablesaw which is basically a narrow orange plastic cover for the blade. I've had a quick search but couldn't quite find a thread that answers what I am after.

    Thanks in advance

    This may be WAAAY OTT but you might get some ideas from it.

    Ducting update. - it goes on and on a bit in that thread.

    It looks big and awkward but it means it keeps my hands and fingers even further away from the blade.

    We need more information like what saw, how you would like to improve it and of course a picture or two always makes the explanation easier.

    I bought a guard from Shark Guard Leeway Workshop, LLC, Home of the Shark Guard, table saw blade guards

    I know they're in USA but the guard was brilliant and great for dust collection. It is expensive

    Thanks John. Sadly, I can't get to the saw at the moment but it is a fairly standard 12" tablesaw, Woodman SB-12 and I just need a better blade guard with dust extraction, better visibility etc. Some ideas that I can adapt or aftermarket products people have used would be a huge start.

    Thanks BobL. A little more than I need but some good ideas I can definitely draw inspiration from.

    Cheers
