Zero clearance works great

I bought this for my portable table saw since the measurements were close. After some fit modifications to match my other than Craftsman saw it worked fine. I will fit another one for my dado. I would recommend this to anyone.
Craftsman insert works well with a little persuasion

I just got the Craftsman insert and was able to install it into my Sears contractors saw with a little effort. There were two small nubs on one edge. Not sure if these are intentional or a fault in the manufacturing. A few minutes with a file and about 5 trials and the insert slid in snuggly. I didn't even need to move either of the two adjustment screws. I just had to make some minor adjustments to the leveling screws to make it flush with the table top. The shallow dado that was already in the underside of the plate gave me sufficient clearance for my 10" blade so I was able to get in installed with the blade fully retracted. The insert is so tight in the throat I didn't even bother clamping it down with a board. I just moved the fence over it (avoiding where the blade would emerge) a safety precaution. Fired up the saw and raised the blade slowly and I was done. I can definitely recommend these.
