It takes a certain amount of resolve and creativity to remove a blade from a table saw without incident. For those with less patience, this accessory prevents mishaps that cause bent blades, chipped teeth, scratched blade coatings and cut fingers.
Usable with 7 1/4", 8" and 10" blades, the plastic guard simply slips over a partially raised blade on a table saw until fully seated. Cross-blocks (or stops) within the guard secure the blade while the arbor nut is being removed or tightened (note: over-tightening the arbor nut will cause the blade to slip – this is a safety feature). The large handle provides a comfortable, secure grip.
An excellent method for quickly and safely changing saw blades.
