Cannot order replacement parts
Woodcraft does not sell replacement full kerf blue SteelPro Splitters. And you will eventually need them for this.
Works as advertised
Takes about 30 minutes to install. Does an excellent job as an anti-kickback protection device. Somewhat tight until several pieces of wood have been cut. After that it works smoothly. I replaced an older version of the same system which died due to age. Over several years I have not had a kickback when I could use the splitter.
Great item for the price.
Does everything it was promised to do.
Product works great.
Product works great if you follow the directions and watch the online videos. I use it instead of the old delta splitter/guard which is awful. I like the two splitter option on this model because it allows you to set it up so both splitters push in opposite directions away from the blade. If you are not using a splitter and want one to reduce kickback but not get in the way, this one works.
Worked like a charm
It worked for me. The instructions say you should drill the holes in one shot, without stopping or re-reaming the hole. I did this and had no problems. The splitters work like butter - no more burning the 1.5" maple! The directions are very detailed, and can therefore be confusing. Just understand that you'll need to make two ZCIs for this setup, one for the "double splitter" technique for plywood, MDF, and cross-cutting, and another "splitter & kerf keeper" for ripping solid wood. Lastly, search the MicroJig web site, or YouTube, for the installation video. That's by far the best thing you could do before doing the install.
Plastic template softens when drilling
If you buy this product be very careful when you drill as the template can soften due to the heat generated by the drill bit, yielding mis-aligned holes. I wasted 35 dollars, and my ZCI has four unsymmetrical holes in it.
