Dear woodworker friends,

Yes, it happens also to me, a kickback on my new table saw.
Now is not only my right leg is out off order, but also my right hand.
My daughter wanted to do some scroll sawing and I saw some
wood for her, and a kickback was my part and my hand came in the saw
I lay the hole day on my bed, because off the pain in my leg and than you
do one thing and than you get this..
We are been till late in the evening in the hospital.
My fingers are still on my hand but tree fingers get saw in my bones,
the fingers where so bad wounded that it was not possible to stitch.
My nails are also gone.

And I must say that it is my own fold, I hat no riving knife on my table saw.
I was busy to get a good riving knife for my saw, from Grizzly, but they don’t
want to ship to the Netherlands.

I have the same table saw like the Grizzly G0690 (photo)only with a other name,
I have bought this one in the UK.
When I bought my saw there was no good riving knife with the saw,
therefore is used the saw without a riving knife, yes stupid I know :-)
Therefore I was already looking for a better riving knife.
My question for the Grizzly users is the riving knife from Grizzly useful or not?

Thanks for your help.

David, here is the riving knife link for this saw. It is part number P0690351 and the cost is $30.00.

Schummie, I hate to hear about accidents like this. I just hope that you get back into the shop soon and you will be in my thoughts. Keep us posted on your recovery.

Looks like the part # for just the riving knife is P0690351.

Here’s a link to the parts list on –

It has a detailed view of the entire blade guard setup.

This thread should serve as a reminder to folks out there that there are GOOD REASONS that our saws are equipped with splitters, or riving knives, and blade guards. Use them so the rest of us don’t have to explain to our wives exactly WHY someone else had a maiming incident…

You have been in pain for so long that you have not been able to use your shop. Now that you feel somewhat like going into the shop, this happens.
You are problely saying “what’s next”.
I hope you heal quick.
