I have a Ridgid R4511 table saw that I really like, but removing the riving knife for dados is a massive pain. The quick release is damaged so I have to remove the whole piece and the reconnect and realign for cutting dados and rabbets.
There is no doubt that the riving knife is a great safety feature, but I wondering how much I would be loosing to remove it and replace it with with the MJ Splitter?
I would rather be safe and inconvenienced than unsafe. But if I am not giving up too much in safety, the MJ seems like a nice alternative.
