I recently made a zero clearance insert for my Hammer sliding table saw out of aluminum as the shape of the hole around the saw blade was of an irregular shape and long and not very wide. Works (and looks) beautifully! Aluminum can be easily cut with a carbide saw blade. I just made the insert with no saw slot, lowered the saw blade all the way, installed the aluminum insert, then started the saw and slowly raised the blade to cut the saw slot.
