Topic tags/keywords: tablesaw leecraft zero clearance craftsman zc

Im installing a cpl of zc inserts from Leecraft and am running into a little trouble. The blade is fully retracted of coarse. After spending about 30 mins adjusting the set and snugness screws the best I can get it to fit is ever so slightly proud towards the rear/sides and direct rear. Knowing the proper fit is either flush ever so slightly under flush I’m left kind of stumped.

Should I try sanding the ZC a little? Or do you think I probably need to switch to 7 1/4 in blade and step it up to 10 after starting?

Any suggestions?

Thanks

If the insert is hitting a 10” blade, install a 7-1/4” and cut through it, then finish with the 10”. If it’s proud without interference from the blade, then you’ve got an issue with the insert.

Thanks guys I figured it out. I had a feeling the 10” blade sits a little too high when bottomed out. It probably is because the Leecraft zci is really thick over the blade. Any how just throw in one 8” dado or 7 1/4 circular saw blade go up about an inch then throw on the 10” blade to complete the job. The zci was easy to level with the smaller blade on.
