Riving knife, important safety feature?
Another question about the configuration of my new saw. What are the pros/cons of having a riving knife on the saw? Will it really reduce the likelihood of kickbacks? Are riving knives available as an aftermarket add on? Right now, I'm thinking of buying a Grizzley 1023, but some of my reading indicates a riving knife to be desirable, and my Grizzley catalog doesn't indicate the saw comes with one. Thanks for your help.
