Ya, know, mtkate .... I almost never know why I’m bleeding. I just seem to … suffer for my art :-)

The Grizzly uses an oddball size for its inserts. I started with a 3” hole saw, and then … got creative.

The pilot hole, for my hole saw, is roughly the same diameter as the non-business end of a Bic pen.

I stuck the end of the Bic into the hold in the Mahogany disc, and then moved the disc gingerly toward the spindle on my oscillating spindle sander.

Once it made light contact, I held the Bic firmly against the sander’s table, and—using a (non-bleeding) finger, slowly spun the disc around the Bic pivot point—taking off just a touch, a few times, until it was a snug press-fit on the band saw.

Then … the free-form drilling of the ZCI ensued … although … if what you’re cutting covers the entire ZCI … I’m not sure you’re really getting any dust collection through the insert…..
