Comes with Delta Removebale Splitter accessory tray.
The system includes the Delta Removebale Splitter and features an innovative two-part blade cover. This complete system is a good value, although it doesn’t offer dust collection.
The Delta Deluxe Blade Guard is designed for Delta tablesaws and fence systems. It will not work with fence systems that ride on a rear rail. According to Delta, you can cut off up to 12 in. on both the main support tube and the extension arm for mounting the assembly on a tablesaw that doesn’t have a long extension table. The extension arm doesn’t move very far to the right of the blade, but it can be removed easily to make room for tall jigs or workpieces. For cutting very long and wide boards, the entire assembly can be rotated below the work surface after loosening a few mounting bolts. Like the other blade covers, the cover for the Deluxe Blade Guard is a transparent, “basket” type. However, it is split into two, which allows one side of the cover to remain on the table, doing its job, while the other side may swivel up to allow a cutoff to pass underneath. There is no provision for dust collection, but this may not be a big consideration for those who collect dust from underneath the saw and haven’t been using the blade cover anyway. The Deluxe Blade Guard includes the Delta Removable Splitter and a plastic tray that mounts on the main support member and is designed to hold a note pad, tape measure, push stick and the splitter, when not in use. A light and a holder for the tablesaw’s on/off switch are available as accessories.
