Delta table saw blade guard problem
Paging Delta table saw owners...

I inherited a Delta table saw, model 36-390C (aka TS300). Unfortunately the blade guard is long lost.

I found a parts diagram of the saw on-line:
and ordered the replacement parts for the blade guard (parts 70 through 80 in the upper right corner of the diagram).

They arrived without assembly instructions. The diagram is not much help -- it shows general spatial relationships among the twelve different parts but not how they fasten together or in what sequence. And of course it doesn't show what the guard looks like fully assembled. So it's a bit like trying to put together a jigsaw puzzle without a picture on the box to guide me.

I'm pretty good at puzzles but this one has me stumped. I've been scratching my head over it for weeks. I wish my local tool retailer had Delta saws on display so I could examine them, but they never seem to.

Does anyone have the same model saw (or maybe another Delta saw with the same guard) who would be willing to post a photograph of the blade guard? Not sure it'd be enough to enable me to solve this puzzle but it seems worth a shot. I'd be very grateful.

Or (and this seems a lot to ask, but what the heck) if you're in Essex Co., NJ and would let me drop by your shop to look at the thing in person...

Either way, grateful for any help.

I have the saw. The guard is in my trailer I think. If I had it here Id be happy to take a picture for you. The diagram looks pretty simple but maybe that because I have seen the guard before. Hasn't been on the saw since I bought it. I know I'm bad but I hate those things.
