Since I don’t use the original blade guard and splitter of my tablesaw, I made my own splitters to get the most safety as possible. As shown on the photo, my shopmade splitters are made from pieces of steel I bought at my local hardware store for about $0.50 each. I drill a hole to fit the bolt of my tablesaw then I cut with a hacksaw and file a lateral slot for fast and easy installation without removing the bolt. The front of the splitters are chamfered so the stock won’t catch when feeding. I have a 1/8” splitter for my regular combination saw blade, one thinner for my thin kerf blade and a short splitter to use with my dado set blades.
They are a must to prevent from any kickbackl when not using the original blade guard. Safety first, right?
You can admire them on my website also.
