How to Make Zero Clearance Inserts

February 3, 2015


The table saw insert that came with my table saw began falling apart. The metal bracket in the back was coming off and stopping wood from running all the way through the saw. I decided it is time to make a zero clearance insert. Luckily, my table saw fits 1/4″ thick plywood. I simply took a piece and traced the stock insert plate onto the wood. After cutting it out on the scroll saw, I sanded it until it fit snug in the saw. I cut a hole for my finger to pull out the insert and raised the blade to create the slot for the blade.
