Best Blade Guard for a Powermatic 66
#11
  
I purchased a used powermatic 66 and it came complete with the exception of the blade guard.

I was going to buy a used one on Ebay but thought I would ask here to see if there is a better option.

Thanks in advance.

I have a Sharkguard on mine. I love it.


But I have the original PM66 guard I'll ship to you for $75. It's not as good though.

Same on my 66. Guard, all 3 splitters (different heights) and pawls. One of my better purchases.

Count me in as well  Yes
It works well and is easy to work with.
I use mine on every possible cut.

Sadly,   I don't think he is in business anymore.

I reached out to him months ago and never heard anything back.   After the response here I contacted him again via email and tried calling twice and no reply.

That Shark Guard looks wonderful and will suck up any dust coming up from the blade.
It is always the right time, to do the right thing.

I don't believe so.   I have made numerous calls and emails and no reply.     I am wary of simply buying the product on his online store because I need to know his leed time.  I travel a lot for business and it wont do either of us any good if he sends it while I am away and its returned to him.
