To the OP, I opted to keep my two Emerson built 10” CI contractor saws over a 70s vintage Unisaw that I got for $40 and rehabbed. I got rid of the Unisaw because I didn’t like its right tilt feature, and it’s table, inclusive of its cast iron extension rings, was smaller than the table and wings on the contractor saws . I would look for a splitter on craigslist or eBay. While they are not a riving knife, they work very well at preventing kick back when working with dimensional stock.
Also, you are going to like that Delta fence. I have one on one of my saws and they work quite well.
