worth it but needed some fine tuning
This is a good insert and probably about as good as you can expect. However it was not perfectly flat (but close) and needed to be sanded flat using sand paper clamped to the top of my table saw as a reference. This was necessary so the insert is completly flat and can be adjusted coplanar with the table saw top ensuring cuts remain square to the blade.
Works Great on Jet Pro Shop Saw
I purchased 3 of these inserts for my Jet Pro Shop table saw a few years ago. I got tired of off cuts slipping down through the standard insert. It also makes your cuts better by supporting the work piece on both sides all the way through the cut. These are phenolic with a groove already cut on the underside but you have to finish the cut by lowering the blade all the way, installing the insert and then clamp a piece of scrap over the top of the insert,off to the side away from the cut to ensure it's held down during the procedure. Then turn your saw on and slowly raise the blade to its full position. It's a little dicey at first but if you clamp it down on both side of your saw you shouldn't have any problems. I have a number of them. One, cut for my dado pack, one for thin kerf blades and one for standard (1/8") kerf blades. They are nice inserts. Heavy duty with 4 leveling screws and a nice smooth surface.
Peace of mind
Safety is enhanced when cutting small parts and the quality of cut is enhanced. My dust collection system also seems more efficient with less dust on the table top.
Peace of mind
Increases safety on the table saw. Easy to fit, a good fit and good operations.
RIGHT ON THE MARK SAW CUTS
I AM MAKING JEWEL BOXES FOR MY 18 GRAND DAUGHTERS. WITH THIS 0 CLEARANCE INSERT I CAN MAKE PERCISION SAW CUTS. WHAT A GREAT ADDITION TO MY SHOP.
SO FAR SO GOOD
The blank was easy to install on my Jet Pro JPS-10. Cutting the kerf up through the blank was simple after clamping a board over the blank. Cutting through the phenolic sheet was a bit smelly though. Probably toxic. So far I have only used the insert a couple of times.
Couldn't find this anywhere. Thank you!
I looked everywhere for this specific sized throat plate. [...] In no time I had it installed and fit to my saw. These guys are great. Thanks Woodcraft.
I'm using this on my Jet Proshop table and it works great. It has all the adjustment set screws needed to fit perfectly. It's a great upgrade for improved cutting results.
