Can’t reply to everything, but I can tell you I sold my ICS blade gaurd (someone with a Rigid saw wanted it) and replaced it with an Excalibur overblade guard. The SS guard does OK with a shop vac hooked to it, but not al that good with a DC (my opinion, of course). The larger connection on the Shark will give you more air flow and better dust pickup. My previous saw was a Uni with a Shark, the Shark went with it. The SS I now have has a Shark basket on the Excalibur and it really, really does well. So I guess I would say skip buying the SS guard, though I’m not sure what the riving knife issue is…wouldn’t the Shark be fastened to a splitter/riving knife when in place.
