I have a Left tilt Delta Unisaw with the Biesemeyer overhead guard. The splitter that came with the saw seems poorly conceived, installing and removing it is time consuming enough to suggest that the designer expects one to have two saws. I'm willing to endure some inconvenience but not as much as this splitter requires. Nor am I willing to run the saw without a good splitter solution.
I purchased the "snap-in" aftermarket model from Biesmeyer. But it is not well constructed, it doesn't stand straight and it is machined too thick for a standard saw blade. I have spent considerable time trying to grind it down but continue to be dissatisfied with the result.
I'd like to find something like the push down model in Kelly Mehler's book/video but it apparently isn't made for the left tilt.
I know that the more convenient it is the more likely I am to use it. Perhaps that sounds lame, but facts are facts.
