I have a Delta contractors saw have used it for years bought it new in 1987 I upgraded the belt and pulleys Rip fence to a Incra and it has been a good saw. However building the smaller item that I build I have had a couple kickbacks. I recently tried a couple new push blocks, and am thinking a reeving knife may help do you guys have any recommended ones to try. Thanks for any thoughts I am getting gun-shy Dee1
You won’t be able to buy a true riving knife, but there is one aftermarket option, search “bolt on riving knife”. The other thing you could do is just use a splitter, either a shop built one or an aftermarket model. One that is very good is the Shark Guard (comes with an overblade basket).

The only aftermarket riving knife available that I know of is the BORK. It’s a retrofit for many older style saws, and I think it’ll fit the Delta. Check BORKstore.com. There are a number of decent splitters that should fit…Microjig is pretty reasonable.
