HI Everyone, but mostly Steve.
I am looking to purchase a riving knife/splitter for the table saw to prevent kickback. Mike recommended that I look into Lee Shark as an aftermarket option.
I contact them to ask additional questions about mounting their riving knife option and advised that it would be used in a community workshop.
He suggested that we use obtain the splitter option since it requires less training to install properly and has less likelihood of coming into contact with the blade by improper installation.
The flipside of this is that the splitter does not move up and down with the blade. I would probably just get the medium size one as it works the best for most kerfs and stock sizes.
Since it is a community space, I think easier to install and more fool proof is good, but also riving knife is a bit safer for different wood sizes. Thoughts before I buy one?
