I have the delta 36-725 table saw that lowes sells,,,and prior to that I had the dewalt 7491rs table saw ,,,my question is this,,,on the dewalt the guard and riving knife were all one piece,,,in other words when you wanted to remove it you just pulled a lever and everything the guard and riving knife pulled out,,the delta on the other hand to remove the riving knife you actually have to remove the insert and unlock the riving knife to remove it,,,,i was actually looking for something that would work on the delta like was on the dewalt where you can remove everything at one time without going thru the process of removing the insert and unlocking the riving knife,,,i hope this makes sense,,i tried to put it in words the best that I could,,,

Look at the Shark Guard.

Most of us WANT them seperate as we want the riving knife almost all the time, but need to remove the guard for non-through cuts or narrow rips, sleds,jigs etc.

I have to agree with tvrgeek. How often are you actually wanting to remove the riving knife? I remove my guard often enough for non-through cuts, narrow rips and what have you, but only remove the riving knife very rarely, cutting dadoes is about the only instance that comes to mind or when creatign new a new zero clearance insert.

Also, I can’t say enough good things about the Shark Guard.

Another Shark Guard Fan.
Easy to remove when needed.
Dust collection is pretty good too.
