It looks like the articulating arm for the riving knife pivots on the arbor shaft, which means it must have a high quality/high speed ball bearing in there. Just visible below and to the left of the arbor flange looks like the actuating arm that makes the riving knife stay level with the blade at all times. It can be done (I did it for my Unisaw), but you have to make it up as you go. The trick is to pivot the articulating arm concentric with the shaft. Good luck with your search.
