That's the way I understand it too. Riving knife keeps a consistent distance between the saw blade as the height is adjusted where as a splitter doens't - gap gets bigger as the blade is lowered so riving knife is safer.

Or, is a riving knife a splitter that moves with the blade that you can attach a blade guard/dust extractor to.
Many things have many interpretations.

Have been giving this a lot of thought...yeah dangerous I know, and watching youtube and this forum.
It is very difficult to assemble the riving knife onto the back of table saw, what with the extension table mounted.
So I plan on making new zero inserts and extending the slot for the blade(s) and gluing in a timber splitter for lower cuts but then when it comes to full height cuts having a larger height splitter that would in fact be a riving knife.
Sounds good in theory,I would love to grow my own food, but I can not find bacon seeds
