I started with a Jet contractor saw and added a splitter built into the ZCI insert. It was a pain, and constantly binding up. Plus it was plastic and would break. Once the splitter got stuck in the kerf of a board, so I tilted the board off the saw. Big mistake! As I tilted the boards, it lifted the whole ZCI off the saw.

Now I use a Sawstop with built-in riving knife and the whole system works a lot better. The riving knife is a sturdy metal piece, and doesn’t seem to bind. You can use the riving knife for any operation except dado cuts.
