You could always try gluing/screwing a small piece of wood/plastic on the bottom of the insert to replace the tab. The tab doesn’t have to be able to withstand the entire force of the motor spinning the blade (the original tab isn’t that strong), just enough force to allow the blade to cut the insert if it comes in contact.

TedW, I would hope when he initially cut the ZCI he had something clamped over the top of it to keep it in place, which would have prevented it from kicking up. I wouldn’t ever try to cut a new ZCI without it being clamped down.

It’s probably fine to use now if you don’t go to the full height you used to cut the insert, but I would feel better adding some sort of stop in the front just in case.
