What exactly is the problem with the OEM splitter/guard? I’ve always disliked the way the blade guard was attached on the OEM ones, but it’s pretty easy to cut that part off and just leave the splitter portion. IMO, that is a better option than the MJ splitter, since the MJ is fixed in place and can only be used when cutting 90 degree cuts… for bevels, it needs to be removed. That isn’t an issue with the stock splitter since it pivots with the blade.

Alternatively, you can make your own splitter using the OEM one as a pattern so it attaches properly, and you can shape it however you like.

Cheers,
Brad
