Try this. I use one on my craftsman and it works great.

Edit: Sorry didn’t look at your model number. It may still work. Try contacting the company

make your own, way cheaper and you can make one for different blade angles or different blade thickness.

They are super easy to make. Just get a piece of hardboard that is the appropriate thickness, trace the old insert onto the hardboard, cut it out and sand to the lines.

Drill a finger hole in one end for easy installation/removal.

raise the blade through the blank and Voila!

You sure that’s the right model number? I don’t think Ridgid ever made a 2509.

@tefinn: Ridgid DID make a 2509….it’s a “utility nozzle” for, I guess, a shop vac.

My shop-vac regularly makes its own ‘zero-clearance inserts’... and I gotta get the broom handle to clear them out of the hose.

thanks everyone. going to do the next best thing. put a thin piece of baltic birch plywood under the throat, then raise the blade through it.
