Sawstop Zero Clearance Lock Down Insert for Dado Blade
After installing the Sawstop Dado Brake Cartridge and dado blade on my saw, I installed the Zero Clearance Lock Down Insert. Adjustments to the insert were easy to make so that it was flush with the saw table top. I turned on the saw and slowly raised the dado blade to cut through the insert. The blade cut cleanly through the insert and I have made multiple dado cuts for my current project (a dresser for my daughter). Everything works great.

easy to setup and use
I like the zero clearance. Cutting the lock down exactly to the blade also really helps with the setup of the cuts.

BEST ANSWER: Cecil R: Thank you for your question. Yes, you can use both of these inserts on your SawStop Contractor Saw. You will no longer have to use the button screw with our current inserts. Have a great day.
