Ridgid R4512 Table Saw Zero-Clearance Blade Insert
The only downside that I have to the Ridgid R4512 table saw is that its insert is so thin that it's difficult to make or purchase a zero clearance insert. The Leecraft insert is the answer to this downfall. It was super easy to setup, just turn a screw towards the back to help get rid of any wiggle room and then quick level it out. The insert even has easy access to the screws so you don't have to lift it up each time. Then slowly bring the saw blade up to cut your custom hole. I will totally be getting the dado insert as well.
Just what I thought it would be.
the two i ordered will get me started with zero clearance insert. I will attempt to make my own if i need more for different dado sizes or if wood craft offers a great deal i may order again.fits the r4512 perfectly

I was excited to find a manufacturer who, based on visual appeal, had designed what looked like an above average product.
Unfortunately, the product did not hold to its visual appeal When adjusted to fit my Ridged 4512, the adjustment caused the piece to become coxed with respect to the cavity and therefore needed to loosen the adjusting screw causing other issues. I will probably be forced to return both items reluctantly.

A good replacement of the oem throat plate. Definitely has reduced tearout on material.
Worth the Price

I was going to make my own zero-clearance insert for my Ridgid R4512 but decided to go this route. Glad I did. It does take some time to adjust the leveling screws and the set screw in the side of the ZC insert to get a perfect fit but that would be the case with making one myself. I'll probably get another one or two before it's over. Highly recommend!
Just what I needed

I use it for ripping thin strips

it fit perfectly and was very easy to install
Totally worthwhile investment
This device is a MUST HAVE for anyone with a R4512 table saw -- the insert fits perfectly, is stable, well constructed, tough, and is a no-brainer for anyone with this power tool. This insert is a major improvement over the stock metal insert which ships with the table saw.
The only tricky part is removal of the riving knife and securing a 2x4 (or similar) securely to the table while raising the saw blade for the first time to cleanly cut the blade slot in the insert.
Further, I suggest having separate inserts for each different blade for use with the saw, if your blades have differing widths or cutting style.
I may buy another one of these units simply to ensure I have one should something happen to the first.
Good product for the price
I love the look and no gap on this once cut and in place. However the insert seems to rattle against the blade alot. my table saw goes from really quiet to noisy when this is in place.
Great quality,Will order more in the future.Glad to see made in USA.
