Congrats on the new tools. A healthy dose of caution and respect is a good thing. If you get that saw aligned and setup well, and equipped with a good quality blade, it should serve you extremely well. There are a few really good books about table saws that I’d suggest taking a look at…Kelly Mehler’s book, and Jim Tolpin’s Table Saw Magic are both well regarded…your library might even have one.

I know your Griz doesn’t come with a stock riving knife, but there’s an aftermarket riving knife from fellow woodworker Bob Ross from Walnutacre Woodworking called the BORK (Bolt On Ripping Knife), that fits your saw and works well. I’ve had one on my very similar Shop Fox W1677 since 2008 and have been happy with it.
