Great product. Hope you got the 4” dust port.
At times, the blade guard gets in the way for thin cuts but that applies to really every blade guard. Very easy to remove/install when those times come up.
Works as advertised and compliments the older saws pre-riving knife perfectly.
Did you get the splitter or ARK (adjustable riving knife?)
I had the splitter version for my PM66 for years. Sold the PM66. Ordered the ARK assembly minus the guard (since the old guard can simply be reused). Have yet to install it on my Unisaw due to… razor blade booboo that I m getting over with.

I haven’t pulled the trigger yet. My saw is a contractor saw so it will be a splitter and guard for me.
I see the 4” option on the dust port but that seems a little horsey to me. Can you elaborate a little on why you recommend that size?

Thank you for your comments!
