Re: Splitter width VS. blade width (on GI 50-175 TS)
Somewhere on that same site there should be something called a blade cover - will connect to vacuum. There are two versions, one a side mounted version that attatches to the right edge of your saw table and another less expensive version (relatively new) that attaches to the cieling. You might be able to find the older one used - as I did (lucky)
Then again, seach this forum, there are a number of threads with really nice user built blade covers complete with pictures
Nothing is ever as straightforward as it seems.
