Default Pic's For "Mike" (Detroit)

Mike-
Here's what I was telling you about the Overhead Guard I got. Pictures attached.

Linkage is a parallelogram with a tiny shock absorber. Can change guards in 30 seconds. Arm unlocks and swings away for more clearance when needed.

All I have left is to finish mounting my laser guide for my old guard to this one.

The original DC went through the overhead brace. I just made my own 2" to 3" adapter and hooked to the 2" line I already had run above the saw... I also use that one for spot cleaning.

It's a clever design Mike. I think you got a great deal on it too.

Yep, that's pretty slick looking.

Someone I consider a master woodworker once told me that a master woodworker is not someone who never makes mistakes. He is someone who is able to cover them up so that no one can tell.

Thanks.

Background to others- I had been looking for one for over 2 years now. When I bought the new saw, I was still looking. All that I looked at, ended up being $500-$1000...

This one was actually for another panel saw. The vender had never sold any. I had the vendor contact the manufacturer to see if they would sell it as a kit. They did. It was $308.

I got a bracket made for my laser guide (pic attached). Now that I got that one mounted... Now I remember why I stopped using that one. It uses 3 L44 button batteries, goes through a lot of them and those batteries don't do well with the cold.

I'm going to take that mount and adapt the 110 volt laser guide that I picked up as a spare for my SCMS. I figure I can put a switch box for it on the overhead arm. Then I won't have to worry about batteries anymore.

A laser guide is not in anyway exact, but is a good quick reference for setups.
