While I do understand the purpose of the riving knife, I found it generally to be a nuisance on my Delta Unisaw that I bought in the early 80’s. You have to take it off every time you want use a dado cutter and with different widths of kerfs of the saw blades, it may or may not help. I’ve left mine off and rely on my long bed jointer to get straight edges. I recently had to rebuild this saw with new bearings, belts and pulley. Getting the top lined up again with the fence and riving knife was a real challenge. Best of luck. Great to see you still out there in the shop plugging away. I agree with you about the customer no service thing. I go nowhere with seeking information about how to line up the top correctly. I just ended up doing it by trial and error.
