Topic tags/keywords: splitter tablesaw

I have an old Craftsman 10” Flex Drive Table Saw (1985). Runs great. I’ve tricked it out with the Incra TS fence and all the other goodies but I had to cut off the cradle rod out the back of the table that the blade guard and splitter mounted too. Now I’m guardless and splitterless (is that a word). I’m using a Leecraft (CR-1) throat plate for zero clearance.
Anyone of any opinion on the Grip-Tite Splitter?

Do you mean the Microjig splitter? I’ve been using one for years, and it’s cheap and effective.

Grip-Tite has a splitter also. I’ve installed it in the zero clearance throat plate but haven’t cut anything yet. Next small project is to use the PALS to align the blade to the miter slot and then fence to miter slot. Hope someone has experience with this type splitter and can offer some insight into its performance.
