Crown guard 2? Answered

Dear mike,

Thank you for your answer.
Just a few remarks:
_1: I am sure that you are right about crown guards not being standard in America. However, in Europe you can't buy a new table without one.
_2: If you have bought a secondhand one without a guard you can easily make one yourself. (See drawing)
_3: As you can see in the drawing, the guard doesn't have to be attached to the riving knife.
I strongly advise to equip your saw table with a crown guard it might save a finger or two.
As I always say: America first. (Sorry, I mean of course savety first).
