WOOD magazine review

Excalibur Merlin Tablesaw Splitter

Review Summary

This very thin splitter works well with thin-kerf blades. However, because it affixes to the saw in two places—under the throat plate and at the back of the saw—it proved plenty rigid. Except for the initial installation, we liked this splitter best. See the manufacturer’s Web site to find the model number for your saw. A pair of anti-creep pawls flank this splitter so test pieces didn’t creep back despite our best efforts.
It’s stout and rigid, but its beefiness makes it difficult to use with a thin-kerf saw blade. See the manufacturer’s Web site to find the correct model number for your saw.
