I saw this about 3-years ago or so, when I was “shopping” for my FIRST real table saw. I have to admit that THAT kick-back was the reason that I went with “new”, because all of the “newer” TS’s had the required Riving knives. I never did like the over-the-blade blade guards and the reviews on them were the pits. The advent of the tool-less removable riving knife finally convinced me to pull the trigger on a new G0690.

FWIW, this is why I would never buy an old/older model table saw, even though many LJs just love their old “unisaws” and such. Nostalgia is just NOT a good enough reason for ME to ignore this (riving knife) feature in the newer saws. SawStop, on the other hand, I CAN ignore. But that is just my 2-cents…
