There are so many ideas on the internet for table saw blade guards…Some are good, some are not so good.

The idea behind larger ports at the cutting location is to try to collect the finer particles that are the most dangerous. If you have the HP (3+) and the ducting (6”), then I would use it above the table where most of the fine dust tends to escape. Before you pick up those woodworking tools, take the time to ensure your safety in the shop!

If you are selling your work, then you have entered a woodworking dimension with added complexity and stress. I’m pleased to report that the overhead hose captures perhaps80-90% of the topside chips and dust.
What falls below the blade is easy to collect and as long as it gets collected, any size should do IMO. The whole assembly conveniently tilted with the blade, so maybe it was technically a riving knife although it didn’t sit right behind the blade like the one that also came with the Inca 2100. For bevel cuts tilting toward the fence on the right, the right side of the guard would be pushed up by the wood and the left would drop down to cover the additional blade exposure. I suspect with a 12” impeller it might not do as well, but I bet it would still be adequate.

One difference was that the Inca sides could swing up and over in a rotation on the two aluminum flat bars until they hit a pin in the U channel that held one or the other up off the table. However, without the right guard, collection will be mediocre and you will be breathing in everything that escapes the shroud.
