Circular Saw Guard. - Guard accommodates workpieces of various thicknesses without preadjustment. It comprises three pairs of overlapping disks enclosed in semicircular housing over the saw blade.

Normally the leading and trailing disks rest on saw bed as shown, but when workpiece is fed toward saws the disks are in turn raised upward by the workpiece and ride on the upper surface to give complete side coverage of the saw. When the workpiece has passed through, the disks drop back, pair by pair, into their original position.
