Are you people kidding me? I always make my own inserts! even on my $2000 dollar jet, with a biesemeyer fence. Just trace out the insert plate, then get a piece of 1/2” MDF or other. use your best judgment on size so you don’t have to sand too much…cut it out, Drop it in, mark the side for depth, run it through the barrel sander or other, drop it back in the table top.. Note: keep sanding until the new plate is level with the top, turn the saw on and bring the blade up to cut blade slot. Now make another plate, throw on those old dado blades and do the same. Rub some butchers wax on the top and your ready to go.. Note: if you don’t have a barrel sander use your common sense with the materials you have and make all appropriate notches so the guard and other apparatus’s work! This Porter cable PCB222TS is a great saw for the price. All saws have there draw backs it all hinges on what you want to deal with. Have a great day..
