What do you use for the dado insert plate? Do you use different ones for different widths of the dado?

You can buy dedicated dado inserts, but it makes more sense to me to use a well worn zero clearance insert. You can keep expanding the width until you’ve reached full dado width. In time, you’ll end up with a variety of widths if you can rotating old ZCI’s into the lineup. Just make sure whatever you use is good and stiff…a flexing insert is bad juju.
