Greetings All!

I have a 1950’s-era Craftsman tablesaw, and I’d like it to have a splitter. After having a few kickback incidents while ripping, I’ve decided a splitter is absolutely necessary!!

Does anyone have any ideas on how to add one to my tablesaw? Are there any aftermarket products available? Any help will be much apprecitated!

Thanks!

-- Dean

Have you checked with Sears to see if they still sell the guard and splitter for your model?

I made one for my Delta contractor out of a 1” x 1/8” steel strap. Mounted it where the guard used to be. Not a riving knife, but it keeps the kick backs away.

Lots of choices Dean, Grip-Tite, Micro-Jig, home made. You’ll want a zero clearance insert too. -Jack
