    Wow, i should watch it before i made all mine, new suscriber, nice work. Working on it.

  4. Jörgen B. on November 22, 2022 at 5:20 am

    i’ve watched it for 3 times, and still..; is that a dovetail you made for the hardwood to slide in, or just a regular 90° route? i do like it a lot. too bad i dont have a saw like that in the first place. if one would come fall out of the sky i would love it hahaha.

    This is awesome bro’. I’m going to make one today for my old Grizzly table saw.

  6. john newell on November 22, 2022 at 5:21 am

    Genius idea. Thanks for sharing.

  7. Hany Michael on November 22, 2022 at 5:22 am

    Very clever idea. My table saw is an older Delta 36-230C contractor saw. It has a very narrow lip (about 1/8" wide) all the way around the opening and about 1/8" deep from the top of the table. So I can’t make a thick insert like the one you did. Do you have any suggestion how I can do this? Thanks.

  8. Jay Davis on November 22, 2022 at 5:22 am

    That’s a great idea

  9. Woodhog on November 22, 2022 at 5:22 am

    Nothing crazy about this woodworking idea! This is great for a saw with an insert as thick as yours. My saw is a Kobalt K1015 with a much thinner insert. Would this not necessitate cutting an extra rim around the edge to let it set flush with the table? I like your idea and it would indeed make life easier for anything other than my crosscut sled which is it’s own zero clearance insert. And thanks for giving Infinity Tools credit. I love their Thin Rip Jig for making thin strips. Thank you for sharing this and your other ideas.

    Your not crazy bro. You’re a genuis man. I wish I had that talent.

  11. Kevin on November 22, 2022 at 5:24 am

    Very nice. What is that angle indicator called?

  12. Leonardo Cerbaro on November 22, 2022 at 5:27 am

    This is sexy

  13. WoodRodent on November 22, 2022 at 5:29 am

    Terrific idea.

  15. John Barr on November 22, 2022 at 5:32 am

    Great idea but where is the slot for a proper riving knife?

  16. Juri Vidiakin on November 22, 2022 at 5:32 am

    очччень интересное решение с "бутербродом". лайк за выдумку однозначно!

  17. Uwe Born on November 22, 2022 at 5:32 am

    Great solution!

  18. Jose Lamar on November 22, 2022 at 5:33 am

    wow, best table saw zero clearance inserts I’ve seen so far. So efficient too and looks easy to exchange.

  19. Morten Mortensen on November 22, 2022 at 5:34 am

    Clever idea! 🙂

  20. Security cameras on November 22, 2022 at 5:34 am

    I have been thiking of making something similar . Thank you for your idea as how to make it.

  21. Alpha Sigma Sezón on November 22, 2022 at 5:39 am

    Excelente

  22. Eskerinola on November 22, 2022 at 5:39 am

    I am building a sliding table saw and would like to use your idea which I think is great!. Would you share the measures of the finished plate? Thank you.

  23. Luis Rivas on November 22, 2022 at 5:40 am

    excelente idea

  24. Kaladar on November 22, 2022 at 5:43 am

    I really need to get my router into a table…

  25. David L. on November 22, 2022 at 5:44 am

    awesome 🙂

  26. Peter Bradbury on November 22, 2022 at 5:44 am

    A great video, and a brilliant idea. I just love the idea of an inserted riving knife also.

  27. MarkT on November 22, 2022 at 5:45 am

    Awesome idea. I need to make a new one this week and I’m definitely going to take your approach. Thanks!!

    why 60 degree?

  30. deanedgx on November 22, 2022 at 5:48 am

    best one yet

  31. Maxim Kozlov on November 22, 2022 at 5:48 am

    Cool! important for me

  32. Enzo Schiano on November 22, 2022 at 5:50 am

    👍 Bello!

  33. Victor Fernandez on November 22, 2022 at 5:50 am

    Too complicate!

  34. Hantz Tremblay on November 22, 2022 at 5:53 am

    Very Very good idea! Thanks

  35. Jack Bench Woodworking on November 22, 2022 at 5:54 am

    Nice work Michael. I like that you marked all the inserts before cutting, I have a hard time remembering that!

  36. RealRuler2112 on November 22, 2022 at 5:58 am

    This looks like the one Norm used to have on NYWS. The company that made his is long out of business… building one is a great idea!

    Wish my table saw could use that style… I’ve got a thin lip all around the outside, so the plate can’t be more than 1/4" thick total. Seeing this video gave me an idea… I could machine some aluminum to the right thickness & use that to support the rest.

  37. Everaldo Seckler on November 22, 2022 at 5:59 am

    Novamente uma ideia muito legal e de grande utilidade, estes zero clearance são sempre um problema e as ideias que vc colocou são bem interessante, estou compartilhando com meu pessoal no Forum dos marceneiros aqui no Brasil:

    mas ficou muito prático a troca das tábuas, excelente idéia essa ! Parabéns pela criatividade.

  39. Tale Gunner on November 22, 2022 at 6:03 am

    could you also do the angle cuts with a dovetail router bit?

  40. Antonio Valdenei Correa da Silva on November 22, 2022 at 6:03 am

    Excellencel, obrigado por compartilhar. Direto do Brasil.cellent

  41. 09tchad on November 22, 2022 at 6:03 am

    Very clever and useful. Thank you so much for sharing this.

    I have Delta’s bottom of the product line table saw (Model # 36-725) and it has a very cheap, thin steel insert plate. I have painstakingly made a few blank inserts for it and will try adding your amazing adaptation to one of them.

    Just a note on my Delta Model # 36-725….it isn’t a terrible saw for the money, but I would not buy it again. The table isn’t completely flat, and the thin throat plate is horrible. Also, it uses 2-piece front and rear fence rails which can be problematic. Also, it has only 3 wheels on the integral mobile base which I find very awkward in actual day to day use.

  42. bobbg on November 22, 2022 at 6:08 am

    Thanks now I’ve got to find someone with a machine shop to copy this newer jet contract saw that isn’t meant to be moved. No one is making plates for this new model yet. Its a rectangle not round on the ends. And has a twist down table lock.
    And leveling feet.
    I might use a wood frame unless I can get it made out of aircraft aluminum and use hnlp or what ever its called plastic for the plates instead of hardwood. But this was crafty.
    And you’ve come up with a way to copy a factory made device norm used on his TV show.
    Search norm and you’ll see the original one in use.

    a cool ting  i like it

  44. Jaime Montes de Oca on November 22, 2022 at 6:09 am

    awesome!!!!!! great idea, thanks for posting.

  45. Rob Robertson on November 22, 2022 at 6:09 am

    Absolutely top idea!!!

  46. Harper Simmons on November 22, 2022 at 6:10 am

    I noticed that all your cuts had the fence parked over the insert to keep it from lifting up with the rising saw teeth and flying toward you. For cuts where the fence does not hold the insert down, it seems like it would want to jump back at you. The factory insert has a tab on the far end to prevent this.

  47. frehleycomet on November 22, 2022 at 6:13 am

    Very nice idea

  48. Phil S on November 22, 2022 at 6:13 am

    Super idea – I like it!

  49. Leroy Wheeler on November 22, 2022 at 6:14 am

    I’m in process of making some inserts. The 1/8" thickness seems fragile. Watched your video many times. Your inserts look more thick, like 1/4". That seems a more sturdy depth thickness. Good video, very usable project. Thank you!

  50. Михаил Попов on November 22, 2022 at 6:15 am

    Very smart idea of the replaceable incerts. And no matter who created it first. Thanks for sharing!
