Since I’ve finally started to get a little more active into woodworking, I felt it was time to make a new insert for my TS. I picked up a 2’x4’ piece of 1/8 hardboard and traced the outline of the factory insert. I cut out the curves and sanded it until it fit. I thought it turned out really well. I have another blank that I’m going to use for a dado blade if I ever buy one.

Looks like a really good job. I did the same thing on my 40 year old Craftsman TS l bought less than a year ago to replace one I sold almost 14 years ago with a lot of other tools I thought I wouldn’t use again when I moved into a 55 + community. I found out I couldn’t play golf all the time and sit around and watch T V, and I have a very understanding wife of 58 years, so I started another shop. Good luck and get that dado set, because you will be surprised at how often you will use it. I am 79 and starting over again and having a ball, so I hope only the best for you, buy the tools you need whenever you can, stay safe and keep the sawdust coming. Tuna 39
