I highly doubt it. I think to have a riving knife, you have to buy a saw that comes with one.

I think Gary Katz showed on his site how to McGyver a
bosch saw to take a self-made riving knife. You might
look into that. That was for a portable saw.

For your saw it would probably be a matter of taking the
saw down to blade shroud and welding or bolting a
spacer to the shroud behind the blade. Then you
attach your riving knife to the spacer.

I know this is an old old thread, but thought I would share a little about the Dewalt 746.
These are splitter equipped saws in the US, however they have riving knives in Europe.
There is a bracket that attaches to the arbor and that is what holds the RK.
I have seen a picture of one, but cannot lay my hands on one to replicate.
They simply will not sell that bracket over here.
If any European Members have one of these, I’d be interested in some drawing and dimension’s of it.
Thanks, Guys.

The BORK is the only aftermarket riving knife I know of, but I don’t think he has one that fits the DW746.

Bob and I discussed his Bork before it came out when he was designing it. It’s a nice option for some saws.

I do make splitters for the DW746, but not riving knives. I make riving knives for the DW 744 and 745 though.
Love to be able to put them on a 746 as well.

I did find the image of that bracket that I mentioned.

I also have a link to that manual.
http://service.dewalt.co.uk/PDMSDocuments/EU/Docs//docpdf/dw746_eur.pdf

The part looks easy enough for me to duplicate I think.
Just need one of them or at least the details.
The part number is 140 in the manual and it says that it is discontinued now.
Still a lot of 746’s out there looking for a riving knife fix. :)
Thanks.

Leeway – did you ever get any details on the riving knife for the Dewalt 746 from anybody in Europe? I have a small fixed unit that I’ve made (after getting hurt by the flying board), it seems to work but a unit that goes up and down with the blade would be much better.

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.

I haven’t found anything else out about it. I know Dewalt makes at least two other models that do have riving knives. This was before the mandate kicked in.
Sadly though, they are different than the 746.

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.

You can google the blog I did on my Unisaw riving knife. That was several weeks ago. Yes, trial and error is the only approach that I know of. For mine, I made a base upon which the articulating arm can rotate. The base itself is not an important part of the set up, it’s just something to attach the riving knife arm to, and for it to rotate on. It took more time than the riving knife itself. But I am pondering a simpler, better way to do that. Have several ideas in mind, but have to try them out.

I managed to get some of the parts through a friend in Hungry and hope to start installing in a week or so. I know that I don’t have everything at this time thus it will be an experiment. I was not able to order direct from DeWalt in Europe thus the friend in Hungry ordered for me. Since then I have found some possible sources in UK.

As I started to work with what I received I realized that I did not have everything I needed and have not done anything with the project since then. I need to review the PDFs of the US and Europe a LOT closer than I had in the past. I know I don’t have time to do such this week.

I have a PDF of the EU and US saw but I cannot discover how to append them to this forum. What I had planned to do was visually compare the two documents and note the different part numbers. This is still on my todo list. If I can get the documents (PDFs) to you perhaps you have time to try and determine what we need.

Another option that I might have time for next week is to OCR the two PDF files, then I can put the info in either Excel or Word. This would make it a bit easier but it may be overkill.

I found the PDF files and there is actually quite a difference when I look at them, but maybe i am not comparing what I think I am. I did find another old thread about this on google: http://www.woodworking.com/forum/archive/index.php?t-12683.html

The thread that this thread refers to is long gone I think. I definitely could not find it.

From the afore mentioned thread it seems that you can, but when I compared the two exploded views of the saws I saw quite a few differences. In the European version look at parts 141 through 145.

I finally got the ball rolling. I ordered all of the parts I needed except for the riving knife (more on this later) from DeWalt in Hungary, had them shipped to a friend in Hungary and then he shipped them to me (this took 3-4 weeks total). The total cost was just over $200. Yesterday I received the parts and today I disassembled the saw (I actually took off too many parts and created more work for myself), installed everything. Because I disassembled too much I ran out of energy and did not finish the job (ya get tired when you are old). I did a quick test (no blade installed), blade will go up/down, tilt and ran the motor without any issues. Well I did have one minor issue. After installing the riving knife support arm you need to attach a link (one of the parts I ordered) to it and part #15 (Bracket SA). The only issue is that the riving knife support arm and part #15 don’t align such that the link (part #144) fits without binding on #15. The bind occurs only when the blade is lifted all the way up. I may be able to bend the link (#144) just a bit and avoid the bind or just live with the part binding. The binding is very minor.

Another part I did not order was the guard (#110), I may change my mind on this after I get everything working.

The initial feedback I got on the riving knife was that it was thicker than the US saw blades. Thus I decided to make the riving knife from an old saw blade. However currently I don’t have a template for the riving knife. I’m trying to get an existing template. If I’m not successful in the next few days in my attempt to find an existing template I’ll make a cardboard template and give it a shot.

Quick Update – The screws that hold the link (#144) in place has a shoulder for the link to ride on (see the image)

I used a washer that was smaller than the shoulder, this seems to have solved the problem. Possibly I can install a second washer if necessary.

BTW today I used the saw for a few cuts and all worked without issue. Now to make the riving knife.

OK I finished the riving knife upgrade on my DW746, total cost was just over $200. I was told that the riving knife from Europe was just a bit thicker than the US saw blades thus using the PDF template, I printed it to scale using the priPrinter application, cut it out and glued it on a 10” saw blade I was not going to use. The clue I used was intended for craft projects thus it does not have a lot of holding power and is easy to remove.
I drilled the hole (1/4”) for the top of the slot.
I then used a Dremel to cut the riving knife out of the blade. At this time I was not concerned about the edge of the riving knife as long as the cut was outside of the template.

Using my 8” grinder with a very coarse stone wheel I ground close to the template.
On my slow speed grinder I then smoothed any sharp edges.
At this point the template was a bit messed up, I then printed and cut a new template and glued on the rough cut riving knife. At this time I took care to ensure the line on the template was not overlapping the riving knife, e.g. I could see the edge of the metal or feel it with my fingers.

Using my slow speed grinder with CBN wheels I ground the knife up to the template line, and used the Dremel with a diamond disk to dress the slot and again took off any sharp edge. The glue was easily removed with water.

I then installed the support bolts on the support arm.

I then mounted the riving knife on the support arm (If somebody is interested I can explain how I installed the parts in the saw to support the riving knife).
Note – at this time I did not have the link connected to the support arm thus the riving knife was not moving up/down correctly and I thought that the top of the knife was going to bind on the back of the table, that is why I marked the knife with a felt pen. Most of this was then ground off and was NOT the correct action.

At this point I had to ensure that there was at least a 2 mm clearance between the knife and the blade. For me it was back to the CBN grinding wheel several times until I had the desired clearance.

I then installed the connecting link to the riving knife (the link ensures the knife goes up/down correctly) and tighten the blade.

I then extended the cut in my zero clearance insert.

and then tested the action

That is it.
Yes it was a bit expensive. The shipping cost almost as much as the parts but often the fixed spliter got in my way and I’m very happy with the results.

maduro, I cannot figure out how to attach some PDFs for you so I will post pictures, first is the riving knife

I use a virtual printer (priPrinter, see http://www.priprinter.com/download.htm) it has a function that will allow me to resize something to scale. I re-scaled the image to exact size, printed it, glued it to an old sawblade (see my previous post).
The parts I ordered are in the following image.

I actually ordered a couple of parts that I did not need because I could use the existing parts, I don’t recall which parts were not needed. But the cost of these parts was very low. You MUST order from somebody in Europe, have the parts shipped to a friend in the same country and then have your friend ship to you. I just noticed that I ordered a few parts that I did NOT highlight in the image you referenced. I don’t recall why (too old to remember).

I have a PDF of the European saw, that is the part numbers in the above image. If you search the web you can find the same document and download.

All of the parts are VERY easy to install. I made the mistake of starting to remove the assembly that is attached to the bottom of the table top. Basically just remove the motor and everything else is easy to reach from the bottom side of the saw. Putting the motor back in was the hardest mainly because it is so heavy (at least for me) and was difficult to balance and reinsert the pin.

The #19 part you referenced is secured with a “C” clip and was very easy to remove and reinstall.

If I had not made the mistake of starting to remove the assembly that is attached to the bottom of the table top I think it would have taken me about 2 hours or less. The cutout of the riving knife took me about 2 hours (possibly more). If I recall the riving knife was about $70 and using an old sawblade I did it for free (labor does not count when you are retired, so they say).

Everytime I use the saw I’m reminded of how much better and safer the riving knife is. IMHO well worth the cost of the upgrade. Good luck with the project and let me know if you have more questions.

The image of the parts is what I ordered in total but now looking back I’m confused as well. Let me try and eliminate the confusion. When I originally made the above post it was perfectly clear but now I’m confused as well.
Following is a complete markup from the EU PDF for the saw.

I think what I did was compare the EU part numbers to the US part numbers and where they were the same I did NOT order the EU part. Following is the US parts diagram similar to the EU diagram above.

I just compared the US and EU parts, assuming I did it correctly the following image shows what you need. The green highlighted items are the same and the red are different. You need the RED items.

Comparing this to the image of the parts ordered they are different. However I know that I did not order a few of the parts like the nuts, shims and the screws to hold the riving knife in place, I reused or modified what I had. Shim are shims, I just used washers. For the screws (#142 I used the existing screws and nuts).

I remember that I ordered a few parts that I did not need and now I see why. My original compare did not produce the same results as I produced above. I think I must have lost a few brain cells somewhere in the process.

For sure you need #18 & #19, these are the most expensive parts, The bracket #140 & link #144 will raise and lower the riving knife thus for sure you need this along with the special screws #145, these have the shoulder I mentioned in my original post. When you get the parts you will see why the bracket #140 will NOT fit your existing #18 & #19. BTW the threaded hole for the #145 screw on the right is already in the #15 part.

The big mistake in my assembly is that I started to remove the #15 part, by removing the four bolts #5. This is NOT necessary and will create wasted work. You can do the entire upgrade from working from the bottom and through the hole when you remove the throat plate and removing the motor.

FYI The obvious question is why did not Dewalt release the same saw in the US. I questioned my contact at Dewalt, he stated that they wanted to but the US Gov Safety committee required testing and approval and would NOT accept what had been submitted to the same group in EU. Thus stupidity on the part of our governing group has basically forced Dewalt to release a inferior product in the use. Yes Dewalt could have gone through the hoops and loops to satisfy our Gov Safety committed at a huge cost and delay.

You might want to double check my results and ensure I now have the correct answer. (Please :))
Hopefully this clears the confusion, if not let me know.

I have PDFs of the US and EU saw, also the PDF of the Riving Knife, if you need them let me know.

WOW, that is super that they will ship directly to you. This will save you several dollars, however you may have to pay duty and I have no idea what this will amount to.

I did not mention the UK website for the Dewalt parts, I’m not sure where you got that from (great find) but if they will ship directly to you this is good. My total cost for the parts I ordered including shipping to my friend and him shipping to me was $200. I’m curious as to what your total cost will be.

I went through the steps to a mock order and if I did it correctly it came to about $215 and they state free delivery on orders over 60 pounds and the order came to about 169 pounds. In my mock order I did NOT order the riving knife. I just remembered somewhere I read where the EU riving knife was thicker than our blades, this was another reason I made my own. If the riving knife is thicker than our blades it will NOT work.

If you order the riving knife from them it is part #159 and cost 52 pounds. In my mock order I used the value including VAT which I don’t know if you will have to pay, this ads about 20% to the order. If I recall correctly you should not have to pay the VAT.

Went to order all the parts but their online ordering form does not show USA as a destination country. I sent email to them and waiting for their instructions.

The order came to 165.92 pounds. Thats about $215 as you say and they do take paypal. Wish me luck!

I think the biggest issue is a little known clause somewhere that I have read in the past, but have been unable to locate again.
It stated something like the mechanism for the riving knife should not be attached to the blade arbor. I do think it was an OSHA statement too, but have not been able to verify. Dewalt may just be doing a CYA thing because of that in the US.
There have been many saw designs that use a riving knife and the saws arbor protrudes through the arm that holds the riving knife. Much like this one does.
As is true with many OSHA regs, they are written so that they are open to interpretation. Everyone can read many different things into the same few words. Dewalt may be erring on the side of caution for the 746.

maduro – I’m anxious for you, I’m sure you will be as pleased as I am.
BTW you can find a scrap saw blade and cut out the riving knife while waiting for the parts to arrive. Use the image I included above and print to scale. the only measurement on the image is the dia of the slot in MM. I use a virtual printer (priPrinter, see http://www.priprinter.com/) and highly recommend it. I have used it to print many drawings to scale. This is only one of the many functions it has. Also the developer, Alex, is very quick to respond to emails.

Just make sure the thickness of the blade you will use is thinner than the sawblade you will be using in the DW746 for cutting wood. Remember that the offset teeth add a bit of width to the blade and since you are not using the teeth in the riving knife section most likely any scrap blade will work unless you install a super thin bland in the DW746. Lately my Lowes & HD have had some super buys on some great blades, I was able to buy a 3 pack for $25 and it cost me almost $20 to have a blade sharpened thus it was easy for me to find a “scrap” blade.

Leeway – I’m not sure how the riving knife would go up/down if it is not attached to the arbor or at least something that is being moved by the arbor. I have access to a couple of SawStop saws (unfortunately not mine) and will take a look at them. Actually on the DW746 the riving knife is not attached to the arbor but is attached housing that supports the arbor (assuming that makes sense), that would be part #18 that it is attached to (see the above image). The arbor is inserted through a hole in #18. The arbor protrudes through a hole of #18, this hole has a shoulder of about 1/4” thick and 1/4” wide and the riving knife bracket (part #140) slips over this shoulder and on the end of the bracket the riving knife is attached. There is a link that is attached to the #140 bracket and the other end of the link is attached to patt #15. Thus #15 does not move up/down but #18 does and when #18 moves up/down so does the sawblade and the riving knife. WOW, how you can amaze your friends and family with your new found knowledge. If nothing else they will exit from the shop very quickly and leave you in peace.

I’m not sure how to interpret the OSHA regs and really don’t want to go down this path :) I can envision issues if the bracket was directly attached to the arbor, obviously it would have to ride on a bearing and if the bearing froze there would be a few very exciting seconds and possibly flying parts.

Right.
I have no idea why they won’t sell the parts here nor why they didn’t offer the 746 as a riving knife model. Both the 744 and 745 were riving knife equipped.
That statement I remember was just a WAG on my part.
It could have been because the blade guard that came with the EU version didn’t have anti-kickback pawls.
I know most EU saws are not equipped with arbors long enough to hold a dado blade. I think those are taboo over there.
Lots of little differences and some bigger ones. :)

So, looks like their online ordering system isn’t so USA friendly after all. I have to do a custom order via email(my email order below). Not a big deal, in my mind. See their response:

Hi there,
Apologises it looks like we no longer ship to the USA over the website due to some issues, If you would prefer I can take your order over email and send you a proforma and you can then pay with paypal?
Kind regards Jamie

I’ve already resent my order list via email and now I wait. I suspect the final cost will be differently since I am not expecting free shipping to the US….we’ll see.

JohnT, for the riving knife I ordered a 12×24 sheet of 13GA stainless steel from ebay. With shipping it came to be about $35. I’ve already downloaded your awesome template and I’ll be a project for me over the Xmas weekend. I’ll post some pics. Thanx much for posting the template!

It does not hurt to ask for the free shipping, that is what they advertize on the web. I’m interested to know if you have to pay duty. I just received a thread color chart for cross stitching that my wife ordered from the UK and it had a duty stamp on the package but no duty was paid. I think somewhere between $40-60 for it.

You need two screws for the link, I only see one in the above. See the big screw image, #28 post in this thread. I did not check any of the other parts you order. If you look at the image where I did a compare, some of the parts you need either 2 or 4 of (I highlighted with red/green in the image)

Hopefully you have a few more parts than in your image. Namely the screws for the link. I’m not sure at this time if the threads are metric or imperial. I’ve created a set of instructions, with pictures and references to parts by figure part number, e.g. #140 for the riving knife support bracket . I don’t see how I can attach the Word document or a PDF, just send me a PM with your email and I will send it directly to you.

I may have missed a step or two and you can correct the document.
