Default Bosch 4100 Table Saw Dado

I just bought the referenced table saw intending to use it for dadoing. I have a stacked dado set and have ordered the dado insert which will include the dado washer. However, in checking out the setup for dados, I find that the riving fence will not retract below the table and sticks up about 3/4 inch at it's lowest position. I'd be happy to remove it if necessary and if I knew how. Anybody else faced this problem and how did you work it out?

Default Foolish Question

I feel so foolish. I've been working with my Shopsmith table saw (Tilting Table) to now and just wasn't used to this tool. Anyway, a slap-myself-in-the-face moment when I went to see a display model at Lowes and the riving knife was below table level. Well, shucks, it moves up and down with the blade. Who'd have thought?

I guess this is a pretty good way to introduce myself to the community by eating a little crow.

It may move up and down with the blade but is it designed to work with a 10" blade? If it is it may still stick up too much for a dado set. I am not familiar with that model either but I would take the insert out and see if I can see if it is attached with bolts as I suspect it may be.

Someone I consider a master woodworker once told me that a master woodworker is not someone who never makes mistakes. He is someone who is able to cover them up so that no one can tell.
