Matt, sorry for the delay in responding to your request. I had to deal with the flu for a few days.

Below is a photo of my sled. You can see the replaceable throat plate there. It’s held in place by a couple of screws and can slip in/out through a slot in the back fence. Right now, that little piece is made from scrap 1/4” ply. Depending on how it does, I may ultimately replace it with something else—maybe plastic. But, right now I have only cut a thin kerf slot in the table and it’s no big deal. As soon as I (unfortunately) widen that slot with my dado set, that sacrificial plate will really come in handy when using my regular blades.

A couple more photos can be seen here.
