What are the defects?

The riving knife mechanism requires greater adjustment capability, and its positioning relative to the saw blade requires modification. In the event of improper or incorrect use by an operator (i.e., use that does not comply with the Instruction Manual), the current configuration of the riving knife mechanism does not provide optimum protection to the operator.

What are the hazards?

Injury
