  • Thin kerf blade for 10" table saw

    Hi, I purchased a thin kerf blade for the Rigid 10" table saw, but when cutting the wood won't move past the riving knife. Can anyone suggest a solution? Is there a thinner riving knife available?

    Don't know about your saw, but there is for mine. but it's not a RIDGID saw. Read the manual and see what it says on the subject.

      What blade did you buy. Not all thin kerf blades have the same kerf thickness. It's quite possible that the blade you purchased is on the lower end of the thin kerf thickness scale, if there is such a thing.

        The riving knife needs to be between the kerf width of the teeth and the body thickness of the blade. On a 'normal' blade that kerf width is .125" and the body is .110 or a little less, so the riving knife should be <.125" and >.110".

        Get out your calipers and measure your riving knife and your blades. Don't have any then try Harbor Freight. You can pick up a cheap 6" digital Imperial/Metric caliper for under $20. It's handy to have one anyway for tool setup and other critical measurements.
