This saw is becoming fairly popular so I hope this idea is helpful to someone. I refuse to pay $25 for the insert from Grizzly so this was my solution. I wanted an insert with plenty of strength and I also hate re-leveling the insert if I have to change it so this kills two birds with one stone. I used the stock steel insert and drilled some countersunk screw holes in it. I then fitted the piece in pic 2 to where the center was flush with the top of the steel insert. I trimmed it to fit the underside of the plate and made a saw cut just long enough to make room for the riving knife. Install and raise the blade just like any other zero clearance insert. Now to make bevel cuts I just remove 4 screws and pop out the center. Thanks for looking.
