The uniguard is a blade guard you won't remove. The two split halves rotate back independently, so you can still guard the blade when cutting very thin pieces. And the guard hangs from above and rests on the work, so you can use it when performing non-through cuts.
The splitter that comes with the uniguard is its second great feature. It is easily removed for non-through cuts, and more to the point, easily replaced afterwards. The splitter is separate from the guard, so you can remove it and still guard the blade, unlike the standard blade guard that comes with the table saw.
The quality of the uniguard is first rate. The large tube you see in the picture is heavy gauge steel. The only improvement I might suggest is making the blade guard (the pieces directly over the blade) were a little wider. I like the guard to be centered over the blade, but in this position, you can't fully tilt the blade without hitting the inside of the guard. All that means is that you have to shift the guard to the right an inch or two when you tilt the blade. Not a big deal. The tray on the big black bar is handy, but could stand to be an inch or two deeper and wider.
My uniguard arrived in a rather heavy, long narrow box with 1/4" plywood backing. Set up is relatively straightforward, and takes about an hour. Depending on your saw, you may have to drill a couple of holes in the underside of your extension table to mount the bracket, but that is a pretty simple procedure.Read more ›
It came a day ahead of time on Fedex 3 Day Express. I opened it up and took out the plans AND as usual, there was no indication that this would fit on a saw with Biesemeyer Fence. It only showed the Unifence and some other type but not mine! After looking the situation over, I had a choice. Either send it back to Toolcrib and get the Biesemeyer Blade Guard (which [costs] more) or make it fit! I decided to make it fit. For those of you that have a Biesemeyer Fence, it can be done but you have to turn the three support brackets upside down, mark and drill three 3/8 inch holes along the rear fence rail. What made mine a little harder was that I installed an outfeed table too so I had to work around it. Anyway, three hours and three titanium drill bits later, I had my Blade Guard installed and it works great. I may get rid of the splitter but my mind is at ease now as my hand passes by the blade.
All in all, I like it...for a blade guard. It was hard to spend the money but how much is a thumb or finger worth? Besides the heads up on the Biesemeyer problem, I sure wish they would have included all the stuff to move the power switch to the arm of the guard.Read more ›
Now the details:
The UPS people did their usual guerilla routine with the package. So even though Delta packs this guard very well using both wood and cardboard, UPS still destroyed it. On delivery day when I answered the doorbell, I found the 6 foot tall package at my door - one end crushed and wide open and the UPS driver already back in his truck and driving away.
Upon inspection I found that the plastic accessory tray was cracked and that the splitter assembly was nowhere to be found. It's probably on a UPS loading dock somewhere.
I called Delta immediately and to my suprise, a human answered the phone! No waiting, no music on hold and no message telling me how important my call was to them. They took my information and they agreed to send out replacement parts. Satisfied that I wouldn't need to return the rest of the unit, I decided to go ahead and install it.
It was pretty straight forward and the instructions were clear. Just a couple of things I should mention. The clear plastic blade shields slip over a steel pin and are held by allen head set screws. It seemed that they required a tiny allen wrench. I mean really really tiny. Smaller than any I had ever seen before. I am embarassed to admit that I puzzled over this for a full 15 minutes before I figured out that the set screws had been installed backwards at the factory - on BOTH guard shields. Simple matter to unscrew them and put them in right. Sheesh!
Also, the instructions suggest cutting 12 inches off both the top and the bottom of the main "J" shaped steel tube if your fence is less than 52 inches (mine is).Read more ›

The unit is nicely finished and done, but very floppy when installed and no real good bracing, I work in a manufacturing shop of truck beds, so the welders can brace it up then... Read morePublished 1 month ago by Dervs
