I had to search for a long time and do a lot of research on whether or not there was a Zero Clearance insert for the Kobalt KT 1015. What I learned was that the KT1015 is built by Delta, and branded as a Kobalt, since Delta does this they have an exact match a twin of the Kobalt version. The only place I was able to find the zero clearance insert for the Delta version was from Home Depot, I had to order it on line and have it shipped to my house. It is an exact fit, right down to being able to adjust the fitment with the adjustment screws on the table saw. I have been using it now for about a month and have had no issues. I need to do a little more research as part of the zero clearance insert is removable and may have a replacement part you can order so you don’t need to order a whole new insert. I went with the Delta version simply because it was less expensive than the Kobalt version I found as well, by out 10 to 20 dollars.

I hope this helps others who have this table saw, and are looking for the inserts, also there is a DADO insert as well that I ordered and it works perfectly.

If any Delta plate fits, then Shark Guard sells them as well. Scroll to the bottom of the link. I got some for my Craftsman which has the same size. It has adjustment screws so I can tune the fit, they’re great.
