Riving Knife for Delta 10" Tablesaw

I have a Delta 36-600 10" contractors saw and I've been interested in finding a solution for adding a riving knife. However, I'm not sure if it is possible with this type of saw.

Has anyone else had this issue?

Any products or solutions that have been found to be effective?

I've seen some people make custom throat plates and add in a vertical piece of wood/metal to act as a riving knife to reduce pinching and kickback, you would need to take care to make sure it's positioned correctly.

I've thought about attempting this, but I'm not confident that I could get it to work correctly.

No aftermarket riving knife exists for the 36-600, so it'll have to be something custom. For that saw, it'd be more prudent to add something like the Microjig splitter to it....simple and affordable.

I just bought an MJ Splinter kit. The yellow (thin kerf) $25.00 one. It just arrived today so I haven't installed it. I haven't made the zero clearance insert yet. It is actually going on the saw I am restoring. Not a riving knife to be sure but looks like it will serve my purpose.

Maybe it is worth a look for your needs.

My only issue with the MJ Spliter is that the piece is designed to come out, which is a 'safety feature' but I would imagine it comes out when not wanted, or needed, which might prove irritating. And even with the MJ kit, it would still require a custom throat plate to be made.

Looking at my zero clearance insert, not sure there is enough space for it behind the blade.
