That is the "way" with riving knives, I'm afraid!
They all come like that now.
Yeah, agree with you some can be modified to be slightly lower. You could even (though I don't recommend this, and yes I know i'm a hypocrite :twisted: ) remove it altogether, Although I DONT recommend this. Useful for certain types of cuts or if using certain jigs. :wink:

I THINK THEY SHOULD BE CALLED SOMETHING LIKE
"EUROPEAN C.I. TABLE CUTTING SAW."
devonwoody":1kldvo6x said:What about your cover plate, mine is about 1mm below the surface of the c.i. table
Did you have to pack yours up, and have you made closer slot for blade (when needed) on a substitute. ? I appreciate you could not have a tighter plate if tilting the blade.
Mine was tight and still is I would ring record and ask them they may change it for you.devonwoody":1kldvo6x said:Mite gauge very sloppy at the moment, so will have to tidy up that workmanship.
Secondly, if the riving knife is thicker than the saw kerf, won't this cause the knife to jam the timber against the fence after passing blade and knife?
