I made my own. Trace your regular insert onto a piece of wood. I used red oak just because that is what I had.
Then cut it a little outside the line with a jig or band saw. Then using double sided tape stick the two together. I ran mine on the router table using a top bearing pattern bit. Be sure the metal insert is on top so the top bearing rides on it and it will make a perfect fit.
I then installed my dado stack and lowered it all the way down. Install the new insert. I uses two stiff boards clamped to either side of the insert. Start the saw and slowly raise the dado stack to full height.
I installed a little clip on the end that keeps it secure. I have used this same insert for over 20 years.
