    New and improved design

    Great job. I tried to make my own, but I got discouraged. I was using the lid from a smaller bucket and started drilling holes. But I had shaving bit everywhere. So I dropped my project. I closed my eyes and just ordered me a couple for $20. But the egg crates and plastic boards are ingenious. More chambers at the bottom improves the design. I actually think that if another company came along like yourself could give the grit guard company some friendly competition.

      $20 for a couple of gritguards seems reasonable. At my place, it could cost $35 for two. Hence, I'm not willing to pay that much for something that can be made, it just need for some patience and little effort.

          This inspires me to do my own Grit Guard(s). However, as blades and I do not always see eye to eye, I think I'll be using my Dremel with cutting disc to cut to shape, and use sanding disc to polish off rough edges.

                Great job on the grit guards. I purchased mine through amazon for $14 for two so for me it was the best $14 spent. Your effort was amazing though.
