Decent but not great
I put this into the Ridged saw and the fit was verygood no triming necessary. The center has a slight rise in it that I was not able to remove. It does not interfer with the cut but aggravating. There is a recess where the magnet is. It would have been nice to have a metal insert there.
Totally worthwhile investment
This insert fits perfectly, is stable, well constructed, tough, and is a no-brainer for anyone with this power tool if even considering use of a DADO stack. The only real issue is whether you should have differing inserts for each width dado you configure on the saw, otherwise, you risk recutting the insert if you set up a stack which is wider than other stacks which have previously slotted the insert. It may be best to invest in separate inserts for each different blade configuration. However, I did cut the insert twice (making sure to ensure securely affixed board above insert on table to get a clean cut each time), and use the single insert for a variety of dado setups. This insert is non-negotiable for dado usage with the R4512 table saw; this insert is now a critical and fundamental part of my table saw when cutting dadoes.
Shop-made zero clearance inserts are not an option with Rigid (and also Craftsman) table saws, but this insert fits perfectly and is far better quality than I could have made myself. I'll be picking up others for other blade & dado widths.
Great quality product
Good solid product that fit perfectly
The table insert was a very good fit. The shim screw only needed to be adjusted out slightly to tighten up the slack. I did need to shim it up slightly as it fell below the table enough to cause inconsistency in the cut. I will be buying a couple more in the near future.
Outstanding Value and Worked GREAT
Best Purchase I've made this year. I had looked all over and was unable to locate a plate for my new Ridgid saw. When I found this one I was ready to give it a try. WOW...It worked just as advertised. I was very happy. Thanks
Works as advertised
I bought this insert to use for my dado stack. Fitting it to the table took just a few minutes. Overall this worked out just as I had hoped.
Fits like a glove
Could not find this elsewhere. Fits like a glove. Easy to set up and use.
