Topic tags/keywords: sawstop stop blade guard ridgid r4512 overarm dust collection

I’m in the process of adapting the Sawstop Overarm dust guard to my Ridgid R4512. I’ll be making my own riving knife out of .090 stainless sheet and have mocked the guard up with a piece of ply to confirm the fit is correct.

With the blade adjusted to 2.5” in height the inner wall of the guard is .5” away from the blade at the apex and .75” in front of the blade at the table. I’m wondering if I can get away with mounting the guard even further back on the riving knife and reducing those clearance even further.

Would someone with a sawstop guard be willing to take measurements for me at 2.5” blade height? I just need to know the gap at the apex and the gap at the front of the blade. I’d appreciate it hugely.

Once I dial my riving knife in I plan to scan it and upload a template for others that may want to do this modification.

Thank you all!!!
