Topic tags/keywords: splitter safety delta table saw accessories

I’m getting tired of installing and removing my table saw’s splitter/blade guard assembly every time I need to change from a through cut to a dado or groove cut. I have been doing rip work without the guard installed the last few times I used the saw, but I’m always concerned about kickback. I’m looking for a good splitter that is easy to install/remove when needed. I’ve seen the nice Biesemeyer splitters for Delta Unisaws. I haven’t seen one that claims to work for the left-tilt contractor’s saw. Does anybody know of anything like that for my saw?

I’m using on of his double-ended push-pull splitters and it works very well for me.

Check out the Grip-tite splitter available from Mesa Vista Design. It is a low-tech, yet very effective splitter that is designed to be easily removeable, especially when used with a zero clearance throat plate. You can see it at www.mesavistadesign.com or www.grip-tite.com. It only costs around $10.00
