Bosch table saw riving knife

This post is relevant to owners of older models Bosch table saw (4100 and GTS 10) who may be interested in using a cross cut sled without removing the riving knife. Well, once you removed the guard you removed the riving knife as well and therefore the only work around is to create an alternative, a metal stand alone riving knife.

 

As you can see in the pics below, this is a simple metal plate cut to shape which you can copy from the existing riving knife. There are no critical measurements here except for the part held within the saw and the thickness of the plate which should be kept at blade width or thinner.
