Saws Covered by Shark Guard
The Shark Guard SGK1 is the most versatile table saw blade guard and dust collection system on the Planet. They will fit an ever increasing range of old and new table saws.
They can mount on both splitter based saws as well as the newer riving knived type saws. Soon these will be able to mount to an overhead system as well. These products are designed and built in the USA.
Current Lead Time:
The lead time for a new order is probably between 3 and 4 months.
We have record order volume currently.
There is no need to use Paypal to get on the waiting list. Just send an email with the model and options you would like. That will secure you a spot on our waiting list. I will confirm this via email.
I prefer this method. We could settle up just before your order ships. Feel free to ask about the status of your order or the availability of your particular model or possible lead time at anytime via email.
What is brand new is that we are now making all splitters and riving knives out of 304 Stainless Steel. I think these are a better product than the powder coated steel ones were previously. Also as of August 12, 2013, colors will no longer be an option. 99.9% of the orders in the past have been black or red. All new orders from this date will be a combination of black and red. Black screws with mostly red parts of the guard. The splitters and riving knives will of course, be stainless steel brushed finish. We still have R&D in the works for other upgrades and products. With a 4 month plus lead time though, R&D takes a back burner and I get to those as I can. If you want to get on the waiting list for a Shark Guard, just send an email with the details of the order you would like.

A bad thing happened and my backup did not deploy fully. I lost some contact info. Thank You and my apologies for the trouble.
If you don't see a Shark Guard for your particular saw and are interested in one, please contact us.
We would be interested in working with you to develop a splitter design that would make the Shark Guard work on your saw. We are currently working on splitters or riving knives for some saws not listed here.
We may already have a pattern that is not listed yet. We do make models that will cover up to a 14" blade for some saws. I haven't listed many of those models yet, but if you need a larger one, we may have a solution for you.
