UL is not law. You can buy a table saw that is not UL approved. But it does imply you should seriously consider having it as it has proven to cause less injuries, thus the UL rating.

You can’t really retro a riving knife. The arbor carrier is what holds the knife and it ride up / down with the blade always keeping the same distance to the blade. There is a close retro that a guy has been selling called the B.O.R.K. (Bolt On Riving Knife). I don’t know what happened, but I can not find his web sight today.

Walnut acre woodworking.com

I use a Biesemeyer snap in splitter on my unisaw. It works well. Not sure what's available for the Rigid.

I've seriously considered buying a SawStop professional saw, because I'm tired of retrofitting stuff on the Ridgid.

I really think the only thing that stops me is that I just don't have as much room as I'd like, and a relatively non-level floor prevents me from easily moving the saw into another position to, say, give me room front and back for a loooong rip cut.

I've wanted an updated miter saw for awhile, and am wondering about picking one up today. It seems like the Makita's are pretty much top-rated, and Makita is just introducing a newer line that doesn't seem to be as well-reviewed as the older saws. I'm thinking about getting an older one while it's still available.

Any thoughts?

I've been looking at a new table saw for a while now but not seriously as there are other things I need more. It works great for it's price level except that the rip fence doesn't self square anymore. I know you should always check it anyways but some are better than others and this is definitely one of the others.

I too share the challenge of an uneven floor. I work in my garage and the floor is mostly sloped into the middle into a drain for all the melting snow you drag in with you in the winter. Tools get drug around to the empty spots when needed.

Murph, one of the reasons I bought the Ridgid Tablesaw was for it's excellent fence, it seemed better than many of the others I looked at...stays square and clamps extremely well. That, plus the $350!! I got it for at HD.

Mark, I don't think you could go wrong with the Makita, Bosch or any of the other name brands out there, but I would avoid the Craftsman. Unless they've made some changes to the design flaws on the one that I have owned for a few years(dual bev 12"), I wouldn't recommend it. Those flaws include binding of the sliding mechanism while in mid-cut(dangerous) as well as very poor dust extraction. The motor has also become quite noisy as well.

Unfortunately, I think the dust extraction sucks (or doesn't suck) on any except the Festool.... and I'd never get Joyce to agree to $1300.....
