Micro Jig SteelPro Splitter
The new MJ Splitter SteelPro is easy to install and use. Easy to follow instructions and drill guide make it a breeze to install on virtually any zero clearance Insert. It's strength and ease of use makes the MJ Splitter SteelPro perfect for table saws that cut heavy-duty solid wood.
When ripping solid wood, the wood often has internal stress and will bind the saw blade and the splitter without warning. It is for this reason that Micro Jig uses their patented automatic Kerf keeper with the MJ Splitter SteelPro. When a wood board begins to create tension and excessive pressure, the Kerf keeper will be pulled out automatically by the closing saw kerf. The Kerf keeper will travel with the pinching kerf and keep it open to reduce stress on the saw blade and the splitter. When you see the Kerf keeper deploy, that's your sign to turn off the saw blade.
The MJ Splitter SteelPro offers Dual Splitter action. The Dual Splitter approach utilizes a mini-feather board effect to control BOTH sides of the work piece, the keeper piece and the off-cut piece. Each splitter is off-set several thousands of an inch to keep pressure on the keeper piece against the fence and the off-cut piece away from the rear rising teeth of the saw blade. This virtually eliminates any chance of kickback.
Each side of the splitter is offset by several thousands of an inch to give the perfect tolerance and pressure according to your cutting situation. There is a lot of engineering that goes into these little splitters, but MicroJig makes it easy for you use on your table saw. Just flip the MJ Splitter around with the “plus” signs facing the fence to give your splitter the correct offset. Each “+” sign represent 0.003”; so “+++” equals 0.009”.
Micro Jig's patented MJ Splitter™ SteelPro system is intended for everyday use on the saw. However, for more intricate operations such as bevel cuts, dado cuts, and other cuts where the MJ Splitter SteelPro may interfere, simply remove it. Micro Jig has designed the splitter to easily be removed for these types of situations. When you're ready to make a 90 degree cut, just plug the MJ Splitter SteelPro back in; it's just that simple. The pre-drilled splitter holes in your zero clearance insert are aligned with your table saw, so no matter how many times you take the splitters out or put them back in the MJ Splitter SteelPro performs as designed—perfectly aligned, every time.
