SawStop on SawStop only
HandCrafted by Charlie
SawStop Dust Collection Blade Guard
I asked woodcraft if it would fit my Powermatic table saw who referred me to SawStop. I talked to SawStop technical service reprehensive but he did not know. I'm a retired mechanical engineer and thought I could adapt it to my saw. Come to find out the dust collector attachment on the SawStop's table saw moves up and down with the blade adjustment where the Powermatic's blade guard attachment is solid to the table. SawStop's dust collector blade guard only fits SawStop table saw.

A very effective solution
Lattices in Wood
I was surprised to see that there was no review for this yet. I have used it for a few weeks, ripping several hundred feet of stock, and it has proven very satisfactory. Like all top guards, it's in the way- but dust collection is very good to excellent.
-Dust collection is excellent down to the last ~2 inches of the cut,
-The claims of minimum rip dimension are just about right,
-The long kick back pawls lock up out of the way when not needed,
-The guard vibrates significantly until the stock hits the riving knife,
causing some blade chatter.
-The pivoting "skirts" sometimes bind when cutting very small stock (1/2" x 3/4)
-It really needs an auxiliary low profile fence when ripping less than about 6/4. (easy enough)
-It is not the same thickness as the standard riving knife- making fine adjustment problematic.
Unless I threw them out with the box, there are no instructions. There are some non-obvious aspects here. Like what is that great wire thing doing?
Admitted: other than that it's pretty obvious.
All of the issues are minor. This works quite well as a dust collection solution, and it is a very tolerable guard.
It appears to be robust, and I expect it to hold up reasonably well.
It looks as well thought out as the saw, which is very well indeed.
Without the vibration issue, which may be unavoidable, it would be a 5 star.
Yes, I would recommend this to a friend
