I’m reminded of what the block button is for…

I don’t think anyone is trying now to help and I bet most people here know what a riving knife does. It is hard to tell from that picture what is happening, looks like a picture of a Bench Dog push block, doesn’t it Willie. Just looking at that again. It looks like the push block was injured! Yikes.

If you look at the bottom of the image, a rabbit was cut, it turned and caught the block on the way back…

True, a riving knife is not relevant to that use case. Not is a crosscut sled. A router table would probably be the best bet or some other jig to hold that thing in place.

Be careful everyone. Hospitals should be avoided right now.
