I used to have a Craftsman 113 series table saw, which I made a few inserts for. To swap it out, I just pulled it out and dropped in a new one.

On my Grizzly G0691, there’s a really annoying screw on the front that’s annoying.

How important is that?

The screw or screws , mine has 3 , 1 on rear and 1 on either side are used to make it fit snug.

Like these.

I have the 0690 the inserts that Grizzly sell do not have the screw. http://www.grizzly.com/products/Grizzly-Zero-Clearance-Table-Saw-Insert-for-G0690-G0691/T20916 there is a little tab on the back end. I haven’t made any inserts for mine. I bought 2 of their inserts and have used them for years, they really hold up well. The price has gone up over $10.00 in the last year, probably due to the China thing.

I have the 690 Table saw.
It has 2 screws on each side and the long one in the front that holds the plate down to the table.
On my plate, the plate will not stay flat unless the front screw is tightened down. The other screws are for adjusting the plate so it is perfectly flush with the table top.

I know exactly what you’re talking about. No. It’s not necessary, or even useful. I unscrewed it the day I unboxed the saw, and have never once put it back in. It’s so silly. The rotation of the blade keeps the insert in. The back screw however, I would recommend keeping in place – the one that just hooks in.
