I’ve been playing with boxes recently and was having trouble bringing my 1/4” plywood down to 1/8” to fit into slots. I went off to buy a zero clearance plate for my tablesaw but the local Woodcraft did not have what I needed. So I bought a piece of coated plywood (Green in the picture) and using the original (Red in the picture) as a template, routed a perfect match. Drilled 4 1/4” holes and moved the set screws from the original to the new and presto, works like a charm.
I still have a ton of the coated plywood left, so there will be a few more jigs created…that stuff ain’t cheap, but neither were the commercial plates.
