Got my new used 36-945 Unisaw running after building the guide rail and extension table.
Mine has the Biesemeyer quick splitter quick release attachment BUT it did not come with one.
I’m trying to decide on either the BORK or the Sharkguard and thin or full kerf.
The BORK is a riving knife AND I can get both thin kerf and full kerf. The Sharkguard would require I order two sets if I want to get thin and full kerf sets.
The BORK would be about $240 shipped for both thin, full kerf and the blade guard with dust collection. Spendy add-on. I do plan to sell either an excalibur over arm dust collection or the Bessy T-gluide over arm dust collection that came with my saw. Re-coop some funds that way. Not sure I want to mount either of them. I only have a ridgid shop vac so it may not even be powerful enough for the Excalibur.
Blade wise, should I go with a thin kerf or a full kerf? It’s a 3hp Unisaw. I have a nice thin kerf diablo and brand new thin kerf 8 1/4” Freud 24t ripping blade. Plan was to use that on my Bosch jobsite but I’ll be selling that saw.
Here’s a link to my 2nd pass on the Unisaw using a Gripper. Not sure what happened but it was certainly a small kickback. It was just pine. Could be an example why I quickly need either a splitter or riving knife?
