  1. Sawstop dado throat plate with replaceable insert

    When I purchased my saw, I purchased the dado cartridge and Sawstop throat plate. Honestly, I haven't even used it yet since I didn't want to use the throat plate for one size dado and then have to purchase another the next time I needed a dado (I like the idea of zero clearance for dadoes :) )...
  2. Using up some of the "scrap" from the sawmill shed

    I took some "during" pictures of this little table made from a busted honeylocust crotch and a little walnut. I just doweled/glued the base to the top. Simple but sturdy lap joints on the stretcher/legs. A little closer look at the butterflies. A few coats of Tung oil and it is done.
  3. 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...
  4. Zero Clearance for Circular saw

    I lowered the base plate of the circular saw until the blade didn't stick through. I used heavy duty double sided tape to adhere a 3/16 inch scrap birch ply piece. I then turned on the saw and lowered it through the birch ply creating the zero clearance. As you can see in the last picture I...
  5. Made my first zero clearance insert.

    Most of the woodworking I've done has been what I would call "construction grade". I am wanting to start working on finer projects that require more accuracy and attention to detail. I decided the first thing I should do is make a zero clearance insert. I had a piece of red oak that was large...
  6. Scroll saw zero clearance table top

    I saw this table top insert used by a master intarsia artist who inspired me to try intarsia. When cutting very small pieces this zero clearance table top makes it easier and safer to manuever the pieces around the blade and not worry about the large gap on the Hegner tabletop which...
  7. Delta Cruzer Miter Saw with Custom Zero Clearance Insert

    One of the only drawbacks on my new 12" Delta Cruzer Miter Saw is that the large gap between the stock wings of the "throat plate". Link to OEM throat plate: Considering that the saw is very new, there aren't any players in the game that manufacture aftermarket zero clearance inserts for this...
  8. simple crosscut sled

    Here is a crosscut sled I made a few weeks ago. I just wanted a simple zero clearance sled. I make a lot of 24"square table tops so I made this sled large enough-and awkward enough-to accommodate that. I also made the sled 24" to the right side of the blade for easy measuring. The sled is...
  9. Reusable Zero Clearance Insert for Table Saw w/ Odd Insert

    My Delta Contractor Table Saw has an odd insert that is only about an 1/8 thick and is mainly rectangular rather than the norm rounded ones. With it being so thin and in an odd shape it, it is a pain to make zero clearance inserts for that don't seem flimsy and like they wont to pop out easily...
  10. Tablesaw Accesories and Repair

    My table saw power switch broke! It broke in the on position, so I was able to finish the project by having someone plug and un-plug the saw. I replaced it with the above paddle switch and replaced the power cord. I finally got around to making a crosscut sled, WOW! I should have done that a...
  11. PINE SHELVES

    28mm, 70×65cm pine shelves, finish - two layers of water based laquer. Two boards were joined with 10mm dovels.
  12. SawStop Job Site Saw Zero Clearance Insert with jig

    This post is about making a jig to cut the inserts for the ZCI (Zero Clearance Insert) plate for the SawStop Job SIte saw. To make the insert with the miter gauge see this project. https://www.lumberjocks.com/projects/422166 I used the mfg supplied insert that came with the red Aluminum Plate...
  13. Marshmallow Shooters

    I made a couple of these marshmallow crossbows for Christmas presents. They shoot mini marshmallows and work very well. The plans are available here from Steve Ramsey's Woodworking for Mere Mortals. Thanks for looking.
  14. Tablesaw sled - Chisel rack - Zero clearance scrollsaw insert

    1 & 2. My table saw sled. Nothing fancy, but I'm really happy with it. I glued on a paper measuring tape from the local hardware store. I later added the movable stop block. I also replace the struts with a strip of clear plastic, since it was strong enough as it is and the plastic makes me feel...
  15. Sledge Hammer strikes back

    Since everybody seemed to enjoy the making of their own tools, with their own hands. and the using of such tools, I decided to make a try. I made a sliding bevel square with two blocks of Palo Santo ( lignum vitae), and a 400 mm (16") long and 2 mm (5/64") thick piece of bronze. The square...
  16. Zero Clerance Insert

    So I have been looking on here and it seemed like one common thing is that people have is their own zero clearance insert. I didnt want to buy one, so I made one!
  17. Shop Improvements

    My first zero clearance plate for my old TS made of plexiglass, difficult to do due to a not flush surface underneath. A lot of routering. The old plate is the red one laying to the left. Pictures two and three are of your typical bench vise. My cousin bought it for $1 at a garage sale for me...
  18. Zero clearance insert - odd table saw opening

    I have a very inexpensive table-top table saw, with an insert stamped from thin sheet metal, which it flexes or bows down with any weight on it, not to mention the permanent 5/8" wide opening around the blade, making this saw difficult & somewhat dangerous to use on small, narrow, or short...
  19. Zero Clearance Plug for Delta 36-725 Tablesaw

    Zero Clearance Blade Insert This is written for the Delta 36-725 Contractor saw but it is reasonable to think that the thoughts and methods described here would work on other saws. This is a fairly new design release and, as such, options/accessories have not yet been designed by the...
  20. Hot Plates (Trivets)

    Browsing through abook that I recieved for my birthday and I came across this little gem. I can finally use up all the small skinny scrap that has been around forever. First I routed & ripped the strips, Then sanded, stained & poly'd the strips prior to cutting the pieces. When cutting the...
