I need to replace a standard 0.125” blade on my Grizzly 1023R that uses a rving knife. Grizzly says that the knive requires you to use a standard kerf blade as the thin kerf ones are thinner than the knife and they don’t make one to match.
I really would like to use the thin kerf ( 0.0904”) blades as they are more readily available, cheaper, and have other advantages. But the 1023 at 3hp can handle the 0.125” blades no problem.
My question is—- If I can adjust the riving knife correctly on the right side and let the left side of the blade be misaligned, is that a bad thing? I really never use the left side of the blade and when needed I would remove the knife. This would let me use any blade kerf.
