This is my first completed project, (well actually fully completed, since I also builded my workbench, mitter saw bench, a bench tool system and a box joint jig, but I haven’t apply any protective finish on them, this is why I call this one the first complete project LMAO.
I want it to have some zero clearance inserts for my new Ridgid R4511, and after watching some videos and reading a few tutorials I decided to start with them. Unfortunatelly at that time I didn’t had the right materials (at first I used 1/2” plywood) and the flush bit for the router that I used wasn’t long enough, I end up gouging my original insert, ( see picture #2). I replace the 1/2” plywood with some 15/32”
At this stage I dind’t knew what to do, after doing some research I found out that SC has some inserts (model 35831) that fit perfectly on my R4511, with that being said I went to my local Woodcraft and got one for $50.00, and also I got a longer flush trim router bit. Now I was back on track.
The rest you can judge by looking to the pictures. I used some polyurathane protective gel, and some little tiny screws that I found on the deepest place of my garage are now the leveling screws for the inserts to sit flush with the top. Total = less than $75 (including the insert replacement from SC)
Any comments will be highly appreciated.
At the same time I would like to ask something. How do I cut the extra part for the riving knife or the blade protector?
