Micro Jig says the splitter is for 10” saws but I can’t see why it wouldn’t work on a bigger saw. Am I missing something having never used them? Looking to get the steel pro one because I’m running out of options on a splitter for my beast.

Do you have anything against the OEM splitter? There is one for sale over at OWWM last I looked, along with an overarm guard. IIRC, the Shark Guard also works on that saw as well as a Biesemeyer splitter if you can find one. I am not sure if the BORK will work, but you could ask them. Any of those would be more functional than the fixed micro jig insert – although, you can make one of those yourself if you are so inclined.

Cheers,
Brad

Actually Brad I want to order the shark guard but I think I need the stock rear splitter support. I don’t have that and looking at the parts supply places I don’t see that they carry all of the parts for that. I did post earlier on OWWM for a WTB but it hasn’t been approved yet. I like the idea of the dust collection on the shark guard. I plan to put a router table in the end of the saw like my last one so the beisemeyer arm isn’t going to be ideal for me.

The stock setup would be fine as well but again I need the rear support pieces and from what I’ve seen the stock guard is pretty spendy.

In case others with a PM66 or PM72 (and likely other PM machines were wondering, the shark guard does away with the rear support arm so it isn’t necessary for the shark guard install.

I have placed my order with Lee.
