need to know:

1. Dose Leecraft make in ZCI for this saw?
2. Can some one tell me who makes a after market guard for this saw?
3. What sort of aftermarket splitters are available for this saw?

also need an 8” dado set that will be used every day. and the set need to make the cleanest cuts possible in plywood across the grain.

Just found this link in another post:

With your need for a dado set I’d go to David at Infinity:

I have a Shop Fox W1677, which I believe is the left tilt version of the same saw, and is identical to the former Grizzly G1023SL. I do have a Leecraft phenolic insert for it. Also, the Delta DL-U1 inserts will fit with just a little bit of power sanding…those fit right or left tilt saws.

Walnutacre Woodworking makes a riving knife and a blade guard that fits the W1677 and G1023SL…you could contact Bob Ross or check his website to see if it’ll fit the W1711. ...he’s a great guy to deal with.

I’ve owned a few good dado sets. IMHO, the DeWalt/Delta 7670 is the best bang for the buck < $100, but the Infinity Dadonator is the most impressive overall….super performance…tooth geometry is similar to other premium sets, but with the advantage of 50% more teeth on the chippers than top sets. It runs ~ $150-$180 shipped depending on sales and model number.
