Wonder if they’d work as supports for a table- saw insert? It’s difficult getting precise height on home-made inserts for dadoes or zero-clearance inserts.

Those sound great; I wondered how well wood took machine threads because this would open an enture new world for me so I’m glad to read that it works.

You can make your own with some hard maple and some bolts. I used some 1/4” X 20 nylon bolts that are sold to attach tags to your car. To tighten up the threads, I used some 5min epoxy and polished in some Kiwi neutral shoe polish to make sure the bolts released when the epoxy cured. Now there’s no slop and the bolts only move when I want them to.

I can purchase nylon bolts; I imagine these would work well.
