the position indicated by the YFull lines iii lgigure 2.

From thejforegoing description of the thereof maybe readily understood. Since lthe shield supporting member 17 is attached to the bracket 3 in the manner described, it

is obvious that the former may be adjusted 'i either vertically or horizontally. rlhebody portion 2l may be adjusted horizontally. The bodyportion 2l may therefore be arranged in a desired position with respect to circularsaw blades or" various sizes.VA The guardmembers 29%29 and the sections 40* yl0 may be attached to the sides 22a-nd 23 to accommodate circular savv'V blades of. dili'erent sizes. lathen the body portion 2 1 has been arranged in a desired position with respect to the saw blade 2, alined spacing members e7-l? will be placed inalined openingsV dS--d through the sides 2.2-723, as shown in VAFigure 3, whereby engagement of theY cutting edge of the saw blade 2 VWith the guard members 29-29 is prevented.

in practice, the vWork Vto be out isfplaced ony the table l and slidablyV moved toward the Saw" bladev 2.V The guard members V29---423 will be' contacted before the Work can be-inow'ed intoV engagement .With-'the [anx rlince these members are; bentV upwardly at their, outer ends andthe Vedges thereof nearest t0 thesaw blade Yarecui'ved as shown, it is apparent that the guard members 29-29 will be moved'froin the tull line 4position indicated in Figiiie2 toward the dotted line position' as the Work is.

'thatfthe guard'members positioned at the Y ures rear'gof the body portion have integral in-4 V.vardl-y extending flanges indicated at 40 and 41. along their upper edges and these flangessubstantially fill the space between the supporting member 17 and the sections 10i-LO and l1-4.1.1, i. e., they extend from the inner V.surface 4:0 40 and t1- 41 and tthe sides of the member 17 (seeFigp y 2. andv Recesses '4Q-a9 aro provided in the'inner walls of the side mem here 22-23 in position to receive the protruding portions of the pms 114. y

In the event that a board of relatively abn great length is to be cut into shorter lengths,

the guard member illustrated in Figure 5 and fdenoted Igenerally at is substituted for the right hand 'guard -member 29 when facing the `front of the device, i. e., the guard having. the socket 3S. The same re terence numerals have been used to indicate likeV parts of the guard member 5() and the Athe parts thereof that diifer from the guard member-hereinbefore described.` 1t will be observed that the guard member 50 1s cut `away as at 51 and `is provided'with an auxiliary work-engaging member 52. The latter is pivotally attached tothe guard member 50, as at 58, and carries a. pin 5ft arranged to enter a guide slot 55. Y'

The guard 50 is pivotally secured to the side 22 inplaceof the guard 29 which has the 1'ecesS--S8 therein, and cooperates with the girar-@i729 which carries the pin f3?. lt will Atherefore bri/observed that when the `guard .30 .is raised, itxwill raise theV guard 29, but that the guard 50 may drop inde- Y pendently of thefguard 29. The board to e cut intoV number ofsmall pieces is ad- `iusted so; as to dispose the long portion of the board onthe side of the guard 29, and the short portion of the board, or the piece Y, to be cnt, adjacent to the guard 50. The

board is then moved into engagement with the 4saw and in its movement, raises both the guards. Themember 52 swings upwardly with respect to the guard 50 as the board passes therebeneath, and instantly drops into the position shown in Figure 5, as soon .as the board passes. .The long portion of the board may be now moved back in ex- Vactl the same )ath as taken `when y it was "noved into engagement with the saw. The

. 4guard29 will again raise, but the guard 50 and member 52 will stay in normal position and will prevent the severed piece from movi toward the operator. It will further be notedfthat the side ofthe sawdis- Y posed adjacent to .the severed piece is protected bythe guard 50. p

It will be apparent thatvarious sized `.were forn'ierly in.
