Yep, Dontbestupid, they are pretty good, IMO, especially for the money. I did make my own ZCI and just set it under the factory insert to fill in the blade gap. I haven’t attached it to the factory insert yet, but I may do that soon. The only drawback to having it as a “filler” instead of a replacement is that I do lose about 1/8” or so of blade height, which is no big deal until I want to rip something that’s 3 1/2” thick. But, the way I have it just sitting under the factory insert, it only takes a few seconds to remove it for the rip. Any ideas on how to enclose the bottom of the saw for dust collection? I really haven’t looked at it too closely, it can’t be too hard. It already has a dust collection port for my shop vac, but it has a trough that cradles the blade too, and I think that thing almost aids the blade in slinging dust by the insert, instead of directing it towards the vacuum.
