I want to make some zero clearance inserts for this saw. They are available from Woodworkers Supply, but they are $30. Yikes!! So I want to make my own and add splitters to them. The supplied steel inserts are very thin, like 1/16”. But a homemade insert made from some other material would probably need to be 1/8 to maybe 3/16 inch thick. Has anyone made one for this machine? If so, what kind of material did you use? Because they are so thin, I am thinking that plain old wood, besides being dimensionally unstable, would flex too much. So I am considering other things like delrin, or fiberglass, or glass-filled ABS or ?
Any ideas would be welcomed.
