Blade Guards

Definition of Blade Guards:
Most power tools have blade guards to protect the operators from unintentional injury while operating power tools. Blade guards prevent hands of wood stock from accidentally contacting a moving saw blade by shielding them. When the tool is operated the blade guard retracts to allow the cut. Once the cut is made the blade guard returns to it position.
