Riving knifeby TohriNo reason to operate a table saw without one. However.
The riving knife's job is to make sure that when you rip down a piece of lumber, the stresses in the wood don't make it close up on the blade and kick on you.
You -Can- operate the saw without, but I wouldn't do any ripping of hardwood with it.
