I bought a Jet Proshop Table saw last summer and bought these inserts a few weeks ago, assuming they would be oversized since I was going to cut to shape. However, they are only 3 7/8 and the throat on the Proshop is about 4 1/16. What good is an insert blank if it can't be sized for all models? It is long enough so I am making it work, but it is a bit frustrating.

Material is excellent. Just make sure you messure your length. My instert is 14.5" and the material is only 14" I'll find a use for it, but not as a ZCI....Did use the screws though.

Great product! My first plate took some experimenting but is a pleasure to use. I made the second plate yesterday and solved the blade clearance problem. I simply routed a 3/16" slot on the underside of the plate deep enough to provide clearance for the blade and then raised the blade to cut the regular slot. I did use a tap and die for the leveling screws. No problem.

I bought these inserts on a whim while at my local Rockler store. When I got them home I found that they were too short for my table saw. I own a Steel City 10 inch granite top saw with a riving knife. So, I was not able to use them. I wish that I could have, I priced out zero clearance inserts for my particular saw and they were $41.00 apiece. Maybe make these inserts about 3/4" longer? Otherwise they would have worked great.

The phenolic itself is a fine material for the insert and the shape machined easily. The weakness of this kit is in the leveling screws. First of all, they are not self tapping and secondly, they are very low quality. You will probably break a few. I will use another method for leveling.
