    Comments about Ridgid R4512 Table Saw Zero-Clearance Blade Insert :

    Leecraft makes a great insert. I had been looking for several months for a zero clearance (RG-5). and a Dado throat plate (RG-6) for my ridgid saw. I even tried to make my own insert. If you have this saw, you know it comes with a metal insert that is really thin. proved to be above my skill level to make one so thin around the edge. After the 1st set up i have had no further need to make any adjustments, and I switch between the factory metal insert, (miter cuts) and the leecraft insert at will. My only advise is that with 1st setup. running the blade up for the 1st time. Make sure with the zero plate that you take the blade all the way up, and with the Dado plate, run it up a little more that the blade depth that you want and the back it off. I you don't, the insert will vibrate and make a buzzing sound, thats a little scary. a 16th" clearance smooths it right out.

    Comments about 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.

    Comments about Ridgid R4512 Table Saw Zero-Clearance Blade Insert :

    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.

    Comments about Ridgid R4512 Table Saw Zero-Clearance Blade Insert :

    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!

    Comments about Ridgid R4512 Table Saw Zero-Clearance Blade Insert :

    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.
