I just got my original blade guard for my 113.299040 Craftsman table saw. I know a lot people may say I don't need it or I will eventually get rid of it but being new to working on a table saw it makes me feel more comfortable. That being said my saw came with a Vega Fence and the bar on the back of the saw pushes out the back arm of the guard (second picture) so it doesn't lay flat on the table. I was thinking about cutting a block of wood down to use as a spacer in between the saw mount to the first part of the arm (Third picture). Thoughts and suggestions?



Thanks!

get longer mounting bolts and use washers to push that mounting bracket back far enough that the spliiter clears the rear rail of the fence so the splitter lays atop the table correctly. a wooden spacer might flex or shrink/swell throwing the splitter out of alignment.
