I just sold my Unisaw that had a the ARK on it. It was useful. I wouldn’t have the used the saw without it. I made my ZCI using an 8” dado blade. That made most of the cut and I think I did the rest on the router table, cant remember. I used a $10 1/2” thick hdpe cutting board from walmart, made a regular and a dado. I don’t think I bothered with the front tab. Mine never lifted.

The one thing I wished I did was take the riving knife out and cut the slot through. This way you can take it out on certain cuts. Lee, the owner of, told me they made it that way just in case someone raises the bled it INTO the riving knife it won’t catch it toss it. I think the clamp is strong enough not to do that anyway.

All in all a good addition to an old saw. Their guard is great though.
