A while back I made a post regarding rattling/grindy noises coming from my Craftsman 22124. I’ve been too busy to attempt all of the tuning suggestions that were put forward, but I have noticed something new – the zero clearance insert sags into/around the blade.
I wonder if anyone could quickly educate me on any problems this may cause, and where to look for a new one?
Another problem I have is that the gap between the blade and the insert is so large that often when I’m ripping small strips off of stock (say, taking 1/8 off either side off construction lumber to remove the bevel) the slithers will slip down beside the blade and try its best to cause a jam.
Something to consider: I’m wanting to update the saw to a thin kerf BORK and appropriate blade, is now a good time to do so if I’m going for a new ZCI?
