Excalibur Overarm Guard Review

I bought the latest generation of Excalibur overarm guard at the WW show in Vegas. Received it and installed it today. Had to order a blast gate, so its not operational yet. It does accept a 4" hose though. What I really like about this guard is that it swivels out of the way in seconds and it covers both the blade and my splitter.

The locking pin cams over to hold the tube from swiveling.

Cam it over and turn the tube out of the way, in seconds.

The guard encloses my Beissemeyer snap-in splitter and the blade completely, but they made the back from a flexible plastic to work with back-mounted splitters.

Rides right up over my sliding table fence.
