I have already thought of that. The thing is, the motor and pulleys are on the other side of the machine. The way it is built, I operate it standing to the side opposite the motor and pulleys. I feed the wood and pick it up with out ever being near the moving parts (except for the drum, which now has a dust hood and will afford some minimal protection against being accidentally ingested by this thing *gulp*).

Does everyone still think a guard is in order?
