I am about to build an outfeed/assembly table for my Jet JTAS-10XL cabinet saw. Although I have always used the stock splitter, I hate to have to build a cutout in the outfeed table to allow for the bladeguard attachment behind the saw. I have searched old posts here and elsewhere without coming up with an easy answer to my dilemma. Apparently Biesemeyer no longer makes their splitter for this saw and the **** seems difficult to install and some people have trouble with it. The Shark apparently is only for a newer saw with a riving knife slot already there.
It seems that my only options are going with the MJ splitter or making my own attached to a zero clearance insert? Am I missing something?
I am just rekindling my enjoyment of woodworking after a 10 year hiatus and this tablesaw is like brand new. Hate to think of trading up to a new saw just to get rid of the old style splitter.
