Topic tags/keywords: bandsaw insert grizzly jet

An Industrial Tech teacher asked me to pick up a couple bandsaw inserts for him on my last visit to Grizzly. I was surprised to see his saw required the new larger 1-3/4” diameter with holes just like the one I had seen on a larger Jet saw two weeks earlier. A quick measurement got me about .160” thick which I guessed to really be 4mm. Last week at the Woodworkers Show I found Carter zero clearance inserts that were marked 11/64” thick. I usually turn zero clearance inserts on my metal lathe out of Corian or plastic. I would like several of you to measure the depth of the insert and how much lip I would need to leave for the insert to settle into the hole.
Thanks in advance,
Dan Coleman
