Hi everyone. First post on this forum in honor of my new Ridgid R4512 table saw. I haven't aligned it yet but I've read a lot about zero clearance inserts and I was wondering if I could make one out of acrylic. I have access to a laser cutter and I could make a bunch really easily. But I've never cut acrylic with power tools and I'm not sure if it's even safe to try and raise the blade through it once installed. Has anyone done this or have any feedback? If so, would thin acrylic be strong enough on its own or would I have to back it with a thicker material? I'm vey much a novice woodworker so any suggestions would be appreciated. This is my first good table saw and I don't want to screw it up. Thanks.
