Worried about kickback on your table saw? Who isn’t really?
Most if not all modern saws arrive with either a splitter or riving knife that prevents wood from pinching the back side of a table saw blade as the stock is run through the saw. This little piece of material pays dividends in preventing kickback.
So if most saws come with such a device already installed, why write a review about an after market product? Because if you’re like me, you use vintage machinery. In my case, a Tannewitz FDS that was made in the 20’s, before such folly was considered, or the original splitter on your slightly newer 40’s model Walker Turner 1180b was lost. Now that we’re all on the same page, let me clue you in on a superb product!
Shark Guard is the creator of the high quality splitters I use on my Walker Turner 1180b. These items install easily and come in a variety of sizes so that you can use a splitter that most closely matches the stock that is being cut.
