Thanks for all the help. I posted another question towards the bottom.

Looks like the bracket for a splitter/blade guard to me.

Cheers,

That is the front mounting point for the blade guard / splitter. You have the manual, check out the section on installing the blade guard.

Note added:

Oh for Pete’s sake. Brad beat me to it by two seconds. You snooze, you lose.

LOL.

Anyway, here is a picture from your manual (on page 24) that shows it:

Thank you! Lol I think something spilled or stain got on it and literally a few pages were stuck together and didn’t notice.

Anyone know if there is options for just a splitter and no blade guard for this model?

I am not sure I need to do some more research. I was hoping some members may have this saw and know where to get just a splitter for this. Mine is used when I bought it and the fence knobs are broken and the blade guard/riving knife did not come with it.

To relate the entire story for posterity, I had completed typing my initial reply and then I thought I would Google the manual and see what I could add. I found the exact picture that Brad posted, but my on-screen version of the pdf would not allow me to copy the image. Rather than actually saving the pdf and opening it in an editor so I could capture the image, I let it pass. In that tiny amount of time. MrUnix deftly glided across the finish line for the gold! A triumph in this Winter Olympics season. I had him beat on the raw dynamics of the post, but I foolishly went for added style points and lost the race. Gold to MrUnix, Silver to Kazooman. Always the bridesmaid, never the bride.

I think the fellow who made the BORK passed
away.

A Shark Guard may be a good option.

I think Brad holds the Olympic record. He seems to always be able to produce the winning result.

Unfortunately, that’s true. Bob Ross passed away around a year ago, and with him went the dream of the BORK. I’ve still got one on my saw though.

Lee Styron from Shark Guard is good people, and makes some nice options.

No doubt about it, Brad is a tremendous resource for all especially vintage machinery.

The sharkguard looks good. I have seen little splitters you can put in line with homemade throat plates and zero clearance inserts. What are those called?

And does anyone have any recommendations of types that are good but also cheaper?

The little splitter is made by Microjig.
I have the Sharkguard and am quite happy with it. It takes a few weeks to get but we’ll worth it.

I think I will save up and get it. Did you get the different sizes or did you find that the smaller ones worked well?
