Zero Clearance InsertIf your table saw is large enough to accommodate a stacked dado set for cutting dadoes and rabbets, you should have a variety of zero clearance insets cut and at your disposal.

Why? Simply put, the throat plate from your table saw is designed to accommodate a single saw blade. A stacked dado blade set is too wide for the standard throat plate, and cutting with no throat plate installed would be unsafe. Wooden zero clearance insert blades are the solution.

Learn How to Make a Zero Clearance Insert for Your Table Saw, and you'll see just how important they are and how easy they are to make.
