Riving knife

by Tohri

 

No 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.
