I would like to know how I can translate the word "saw splitter" or "saw blade splitter" into German. Thank you.

a table saw splitter is the most important safety device for a table saw. The reason for the splitter is at least two fold:

1. First, it prevents the work piece from rotating into the blade during rip operations, consequently preventing the most common reason for kickback. Kickbacks can be vicious, especially, as in my case, if the workpiece rides on top of the rotating blade. If the blade catches the workpiece in this manner, it will throw it back towards the operator like a frisbee.

2. Second, they keep the kerf from closing behind the blade. Internal stress of wood can cause the workpiece to bind the blade following a rip cut and therefore the spitter will prevent that from happening.
