Funny you should post this today. Yesterday I had the first problem with my compound miter saw. I hit a bad spot in a piece I was cutting and it shattered in two pieces. One went down into the slot and cause my work piece to kick back, hitting me in my chest. The other piece went up into the blade and stopped it cold. A zero tolerance guard would have prevented that. Thanks for posting.
One question, how does it work at 45 degrees?

Nicely done Brat, I did the same thing with my cheapo Harbor Freight SCMS, it made a world of difference on mine as well, there’s just way too much of a gap in the stock insert in those saws. Although with the HF saw you have to change them out every now and then, I don’t do many bevel cuts on mine so I can’t answer Steve’s question, but I’d imagine that it opens the cut line up a bit.

I have been thinking about making one for my 12” slider… I keep getting narrow cut offs falling into the slot on mine, then getting grabbed and thrown toward me…

In reply to our question on how it works on a 45 % I don’t know but if it gets cut up its easy to replace. For years I put up with the wood chips hitting me so this took cre of it. I did not known what type of wood it is as I have a shed full of exotic wood. I know it is worth a lot of money but it was given to me by a freind,
