When I discovered the cost of aftermarket zero-clearance throat inserts for my tablesaw, I decided to make my own.I bought an ordinary white, high-density plastic kitchen cutting board, 1/2 in.thick.I marked and cut out several inserts, using the existing metal one as a template.
I then drilled and tapped four holes in each insert to install leveling set screws.I also drilled a finger hole to make it easy to remove the insert from the saw table.The cuttingboard material is ideal because it is inexpensive, friction-free, dense and stable.
I was able to make several inserts for less than the price of one commercially available piece...
