  1. ZCI for grizzly G0771z

    This really isn't a project but something i needed to for upcoming projects and safety. this particular TS inserts are very thin so i used a 1/8 hardboard with some scrap to add some heft and support. you can use a router or drill press to accomplish the same but i felt this was a simpler and...
  2. My R4511's ZCI With Replaceable Plate

    Since I had a flub on this ZCI when I made it (tape slipped on the third one) I figured I'd use it to test my idea of using leftover laminate flooring as inserts for a ZCI, that way I can have a fresh plate any time I want just by slipping in a new insert and cutting through it. All in all it...
  3. ZCI from a ZCI

    A couple years back I picked up one of the Leecraft ZCI's and have loved it ever since. It fits my tablesaw perfectly and the adjustment screens make sure I get it dead level. However, at ~$25 a pop it would get expensive to have one for each blade, especially if you think about a dado stack...
  4. Zero Clearance Insert (ZCI) for Grizzly G0771 Table Saw

    I really like this table saw, but it is not set up for a zero clearance insert. The recess for an insert is only 3/16 inch deep, and the levelling screws for the factory insert also interfere with a ZCI. My first attempt shown in an earlier project was pretty crude, and the 3/16" oak insert...
  5. Laminate Flooring ZCIs

    I finally made me a few ZCIs for my Craftsman 113 table saw. I used some leftover laminate flooring and a pattern bit on my router table to make one for a pattern, then I made two more. I intentionally left the top "humble" (opposite of "proud"?) to allow for adjustment. The ZCIs are pretty...
  6. Zero Clearance Insert (ZCI) on demand.

    With all the twists and pitfalls in life, occasionally one can get lucky… and be born beautiful like me… and if you don't like your face, upon your next reincarnation, ask the Obstetricians to shove you back in and pull you out with a better dial… Now if you believe the above, stop reading...
  7. Bog Oak Pen

    When I was making my sgian dubh presentation box for my best man, I wanted to use bog oak in it. The bog oak I bought from the U.K. came with a few larger pieces, so I thought I'd try my hand at pen turning. I'm not terribly comfortable using the lathe yet, so I still have a lot of cleaning up...
  8. ZCI Fence for my Combination Bevel Sled.

    Boys and Girls, I sincerely apologise for my impropriety and profound taradiddle, as my project Combination Bevel Sled for small parts, as it was originally posted, was not fully completed. While I utilise skins on my other sleds' fence (gallery photos 5 & 6), it wasn't till I was confronted...
  9. Horse Shoe Door Knocker

    This is my first try at one of these. I was give a bucket of horse shoes a few years ago and welded some together for coat hooks but this one said it wanted to be a door knocker…. so it is.. I just welded a rod across the opening for the pivot and added some brass knocking pieces and a cherry...
  10. ZCI Interchangeable Inserts.

    Boys and Girls, ZCI is an acronym for Zero Clearance Insert, however, consider yourself pardoned when I say "ZCI Insert" and you accuse me of stuttering. While toying with some comments on ZCI, Marpel enticed me with this titillating comment, "… rather than replace the full zci, the hardboard...
  11. Walnut Coffee Grinder

    My wife loves coffee and one day touring the local antique stores I saw an old vintage coffee grinder. I thought that would be nice for her but thought I could make a new one. This is made from walnut with about 7 coats of wipe on Poly. The grinder mechanism I forged from molten ingots of solid...
  12. My Third Project... Zero-clearance tablesaw insert plate

    I wanted a ZCI for my new R4512, but before spending $30 on a store-bought one, I decided to try it and build one myself. I was inspired by another Jock to make this ZCI. I just made a couple small modifications to his design. The ZCI is made out of MDF. The plate that came with the saw had a...

  14. Zero Clearance Inserts ZCI's

    This is my first project post. I am figureing out one post at a time. So for now since I have photobucket on my phone and it is easy to upload I will start with those projects that happen to be on my phone. So we have Zero Clearance Inserts made a few months ago. Not a whole lot to it. I bought...

  15. Band-Saw Box

    I messed up on it, but its okay i guess. Made it in woods.
  16. Hillbilly’s Ultimate ZCI

    The recent acquisition of a Magic Molder head and some cutters ( www.magicmolder.com ) from my buddies at Ballew Saw & Tool here in Springfield ( www.ballewsawandtool.com ), prompted me to move forward with this project. I made seven Zero Clearance Inserts (ZCI) when I first got my PM66 back in...
  17. Zero Clearance Inserts for Delta 36-725

    I have my Delta 36-725 table saw for about 6 months now, and I'm surprised at the lack of any aftermarket Zero Clearance Inserts. At least I can't find any. Delta does offer one, but I wasn't thrilled with the design, or the hefty price. I had been hesitant to try to make one myself because the...
  18. Luthier's thumb shoulder plane - the rhykenologist...

    Luthier's thumb shoulder plane now I finally think I owned my nickname rhykenologist You must think I have lost it now. Perhaps I did… This afternoon after finishing the blog about 11 mini planes, I heard a voice in my head: 'but MaFe, you did not make a shoulder plane and you only did Krenov...
  19. Zero Clearance Inserts

    Here are some zero clearance inserts I made with my son for a table saw we are rebuilding. The materials are from some maple flooring from next door. My first attempt at creating a pattern was too loose (based on metal insert) so I did a crayon rubbing of the actual opening and used that. This...
  20. Pen from my Bradford Pear tree

    Yes, it's just a pen. But this is the first time I cut out blanks from a fresh wet log, dried it, and make a pen out of it. It's from my bradford pear tree that I recently got topped off. The wood is kinda boring to look at without any well defined grain lines, but I can at least say this pen...
