Making a Splitting Knife for Craftsman 100 Table Saw

Hi


This is not my idea, just my attempt at making a Splitting Knife for my Craftsman 100 series Table Saw. I downloaded the template from Sharkguard, and used a scrap piece of plate metal I had laying around. I still have more work to do on the knife before I'm satisfied with it, and as for that screw holding it in place it's only for mock up, I'll be using a locking lever bolt in its place like whats in the video below.


Here is the link to the guy showing the system.

Can it pivot downwards?

I hope there is no way it can pivot down into the blade! If not I would certainly make that addition to yours. Having only one bolt as a mounting means, there needs to be a leg on the metal plate that extends down so it can't pivot. Murphy's Law says ... If it can, it will.....

The answer to your question will only be as detailed and specific as the question is detailed and specific. Good questions also include a sketch or a photo that illustrates your issue. (:< D)

Hi


I plan on making a few more changes to to this one, the final version is going to fit nice and tight. One thing I did different from the original template was to do away with the bolt mounting slot, I think having just a hole for the screw to go through is much better.

I asked a specific question above. What's the answer?
A splitter is a great safety accessory:

Sign in office- Compared to me, Murphy was an optimist. Seriously, great idea and design.
