Post: RE: Blade guard for radial arm saw

That guard would drive me nuts. Lining blade up to cut line. A lot of times I need to cut a hair off. Like to slide work against stopped blade. Then cut. Wouldn't work for me.

I have had 2 planers weighing 450+# each on shopmade bases. 4 non locking swivel casters. Doesn't move when being used. 4 swivel casters make moving easier, than with 2 fixed casters.
