I just held the insert infront of the blade centered on the hole (making a heart like shape with my hands, with my thumbs moving towards the blade, the pointer fingers holding the insert and using my middle fingers to line up with the table cut out) turned on the saw, and moved the insert forward very slowly cutting the kerf. Quick, easy and works well. But I caution you, move slowly cause your thumbs are moving towards a blade. :)

So my replacement bandsaw inserts finally arrived in the mail, and they are zero clearance inserts.

Is there a clever way to create the slot for the blade kerf? Done it before on a tablesaw by raising the blade but not on a bandsaw …...
