 I've made a riving knife and a few other items from saw blades and old rusty handsaw blades. Good hard material.

There are dozens of threads on this subject for this saw.  But no answers.

I would just get a full-thickness saw blade.  I have a thin kerf blade and it is useful for ripping as there is less cutting resistance.  But the narrow kerf means it wants to bind up easier.  I start the cut, and then kill the motor and wedge in a piece of shim stock and then start over again.  A wedge in the cut end is as effective as a riving knife.

You can also make the cut in two passes; only cutting through half the thickness on the first pass to reduce power demands.

But mostly I just use my regular blade.

I had a similar issue for a Shop Fox cabinet saw: the splitter that came with the saw was not only overly thick, but was also not in line with the saw blade. I bent it as much as I could to align with the blade. Next I had one of my employees surface grind the splitter until it worked. A bit of upfront pain, but it has worked well ever since.
