the original inset of my slider was getting worn out as you can see on the pics, cutoffs had a tendency to be pulled in between the blade and they would at best clog up the DC or at worst jam the blade.
on these panelsaws with sliders that slide next to the blade, there is no real inset, just a piece of wood screwed on the right of the blade. there was originally to much space in between to my liking, and it was made of softwood “meranti”, so cutoffs that got pulled down would each time damage it a bit more.
the one i made is made of oak, it almost touches the blade, and there is an additional piece screwed against it that partially goes around the blade like a classical zero clearance would and it also covers the scoring blade. when i want to use the scoring blade i can just unscrew the extension
