Also on my to-do list.

Zero clearance insert is a greatly needed addition to any saw, imo. Nicely done.

Great idea. I wouldn’t have cut the first one but kept it as a pattern to make up some extras on the router table.

Zero clearance insert is a needed addition to any saw, but it is useful only in cases when the saw blade at a right angle to the surface. if miter saw can change the angle of the vertical axis, then it is a problem.
