Just feeling a bit mischievous, and wanting to tweak some SS chains: Why does a Saw Stop need a blade guard? (I can think of one reason, but curious what you users think).
I m thinking about the fact that so many (myself included) of regular TS users threw the blade guard away years ago. Why would you accept the aggravation of a guard when the brake should provide all the safety you need?

The only reason Sawstop owners use a blade guard is to minimize buying numerous blades and replacement cartridges. If it wasn’t for the extra expense, we’d drag our fingers across the moving blades daily just to prove that it is the safest saw in the world. Marc
