About a eight or ten inch tall one will work, dont know how a long one will work, it might. the reason i mentioned about the kick back as i have been right next to a guy that got killed . when a flitch rode up and came right back into his chest. killing him, and another guy got crippled the same way. so that said , a riving knife or splitter and anti kickback hold downs would be a good idea. just dont want my new friends getting hurt.
