Now that I'm the owner of a GI 50-175 TS, I'm about to purchase a blade for it. Previously I used a Forrest WWII thin kerf on a TS that had no splitter.
Now that this new saw has a splitter, I decided to get the vernier out and measure the thickness of it before putting the WWII on it. I measured the thickness at 2.6mm (.102"), and the thickness of the WWII I also measured at 2.6mm. I believe the stated thickness of the WWII is 3/32 (.09375").
For the life of me, I can't find a minimum blade thickness that can be used on the 50-175, although I swear I read it somewhere once..
Anyways, my concern is that this splitter is too thick for a thin kerf blade. Which is a shame, because I prefer using them.
