You understand the differences. A moving riving knife is more complicated
than a fixed splitter. I wish we had 'em here. As I understand it, OSHA is
all hung up on anti-kickback pawls. I have yet to see a riving knife set up
with anti kickback pawls, too. Oh, I take that back. I think the Ryobi
BT3100 has it. Anyway, I understand the anti-kickback pawls are not
required in Europe, but the Riving knife is.
I think the Europeans got it right.
