Please have a look at the little video attached here. The riving knife on my Ridgid R4512 is loose. I don’t remember it being this way. I’m wondering if something is broken or somehow out of adjustment. I’m still able to use the saw, as the riving knife finds its way to the kerf, but I don’t think it is completely safe like this. Any suggestions on what’s wrong and how it can be fixed? Thanks very much.

There should be set screws behind the arbor that you can tighten, mine was loose when I first got it also and I tightened them and the side to side play you have was gone.

Here is where I originally found the info and in one of the posts I believe the guy tells you how to get at them easier.
