I am not an expert on riving knives, although my saw here in La Conner has one. In theory, I guess the riving knife ought to be the same thickness as the blade, but maybe I am giving too much credit to the function of the riving knife. If it lined up so that the edge of the riving knife was at the edge of the blade, or even slightly more, meaning towards the fence, that might not be all bad. But that is all just hot air, since I don’t know much.

Really just wanted to say hello, in any case. Kink in my back today (old problem) but should be down in the shop the next few days finishing up some speaker stands. Temperature is 53 deg F here in La Conner, a lot warmer than Anchorage, and the grass and ivy are green. Welcome change from the frigid North.

Hope you and family are doing well…
