Lee – thanks for the feedback
Looking closely at my 746 I might be able to make a ring that fits around the assembly that house the axle of the blade. The ring would have to have some set screws to lock it on. Then I’d have to weld an arm to the ring that would support the riving knife thus as the blade and assembly moved up and down so wood the riving knife. The final part would look something like the image you posted. However I’d much prefer to find one already made!

I can also visualize what runwithsissors is suggesting either way it will be a lot of trial and error.

I have a crude stationary rectangular spliter that I made from a handsaw blade but I think for now I’ll make another stationary one that follow the arc of the blade.
