While trying to begin a project i ran into a big problem. I was trying to crosscut a sheet of 1/4 masonite. I wanted to make a panel sled. I had extended the wing fully. When i proceeded to try and feed the material the material went under the rip fence which totally "kerflupped" my material. Of course this will definitely not do.
So i postponed that project and began to make an insert for the extension. I think it turned out fairly well.

Okay. i bought my first table saw. Got it home,. Assembled everthing Aligned everything So i should be ready to get cracking on some DIY goodness. Right? Wrong!!!!
In order to begin my first project i needed a ZCI (zero clearance insert), which i found was not gonna be something i could pick up at the local big box lumber store. So I started looking for some after market candidates. And what did I find you ask. Nothing. Nada. Nil. I couldn't find a thing.. So, My options were: make one or return the tablesaw. So now my first project is a zero clearance insert. And after a few minutes of tinkering i was up and running. PUHLEASE!!!
After 3 days i finally succeded in producing a functioning model. Of course i totally screwed up a perfect piece of red oak on two of the test peices before it dawned on me to make it out of MDF first. DUH!!
