  • Aftermarket splitter for TS3650 table saw??

    Is there an aftermarket splitter out there that fits the TS3650? I know Merlin and Biesmeyer make them, but they only seem to fit Jet and Delta saws.

    I believe Lee Styron, maker of the Shark Guard, is working on one. This is a splitter and a blade guard (with dust collection). The product is in "beta" testing now. For general info you can visit http://www.leestyron.com/.

      Quite a site Alan J., http://www.leestyron.com/.

      I'll definitely have to keep an eye out for the Ridgid version of the Shark Guard. Thanks.

        Universal, inexpensive and effective.

          woodslayer, do you have one of those MJ Spliters mounted on your saw? The reason I ask is that looking at it at their website it appears to me that it might need more room to mount it than what is available from the back of the blade to the back of the throat plate on the Ridgid TS.

            I do indeed have one mounted on mine, well I have the holes drilled anyway, but 99% of the time the MJ is not mounted because I prefer extra sense of security that a blade guard offers me.

              Dave, I use the MJ splitter most of the time. I don't use the blade guard at all. I know, I know, but that is my preference. For thick stock I use the stock splitter that I disassembled from the blade guard.
              I've never had a problem with the MJ coming out and find the ability to change the amount of side pressure a big benefit..

                I use the MJ splitter and recommend it. I, too, am keeping an eye out for the upcoming shark guard. The selling point for me will be the dust-collection port.

                    Shark guard for rigid table saws

                    The initial pictures are of a TS2424. There are new pictures of my 3650 with the new shark guard on his web site this morning. The guard works wonderfully. If you check the web site for the pictures and look on Woodnet for a thread on the shark guard for the 3650 there is some good information on it and some of my initial comments. I will be doing a full review of the guard soon and will post it here for everyone who is interested.

                      Ken, looking forward to your review of this new product. I hope you touch on the differences between the stock splitter/blade guard and the shark guard. After reading the posts at WoodNet and looking at the pictures on Lee's website I can't see much difference between the two. Granted the shark guard has the dust port, which I really like, but other than that it doesn't appear that it offers any other advantage over the stock blade guard/splitter. Again, looking forward to your review.

                        Badger Dave,

                        The dust collection is probably the biggest advantage to me but the shark guard is also a lot easier for me to install and remove than the standard blade guard/splitter. I have an outfeed table on my saw and it is difficult to remove the stock splitter. The shark guard is easy to remove/replace with the outfeed table on the saw. You make a good point on comparing the two I will remember to do comparisions in my review. Thanks for the suggestion.
