Craftsman insert works well with a little persuasion
Posted March 10, 2014
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.

The Jet insert doesn't fit my JPS-10. The description implies it fits all Jets except the Supersaw, but it doesn't fit the ProShop saws either.

Recently bought two inserts for an older Craftsman table saw. Neither fit my throat opening so I had to route out additional contours on the inside of the four corners to make them fit. It was a bit of work but they fit perfectly now. I then used the fence to hold down the insert while I slowly raised the saw through the insert. I also ran a strip of masking tape over the cut to prevent any chipping prior to making the cut.

Figured it out easily. I had to adapt it to use in my cable driven Craftsman, but that was very easy also. Only bend the pin and drill a hole for the locking screw.

Way too short for my saw. I see now that measurements are on another tab. /p>
