Zero Clearance Insert Installed On Delta Contractor Table Saw
The Rockler Zero Clearance Insert, P/N 69147, was installed on a Delta Contractor Table Saw, Model 34-444, manufactured in 1993. Insert fit perfectly.

Insert was easy to level using the 4 leveling screws, and fit snugly into the table saw opening using the jam screw on the infeed end of the insert. The outfeed end is pined similar the the factory supplied insert from Delta.

Installation instructions stipulate the insert to be held in place when creating the saw blade kerf opening. For safety reasons, the Delta Miter Gauge was used for this purpose. (see picture)

Saw blade was raised to create the saw blade kerf opening. This process creates a significant amount of plastic dust, so wear a paper respirator.

Zero clearance insert works well on my Delta Contractor Table Saw. There is an increase in saw blade noise due the the interference fit of the insert and saw blade. I assume this noise will diminish over time when the insert breaks in. Insert minimizes chip out when cutting particle board, and melamine particle board.

I would recommend this Zero Clearance Insert for use on Delta Contractor Table Saws. Chip out on saw cuts is significantly reduced.

Zero clearance insert...for Delta table saw
This item seems well made, and has FIVE adjustment screws --one on each corner for leveling with table, and one on side for adjusting to make if fit more tightly to reduce climbing out of table. Seems like a useful one

I suggest you going into a store if there one close to you and take your existing insert and match them up.
if not then a call to one of their store reps would probably;y be of help.

Meegan G on Jun 18, 2017
Recently I bought two inserts for a jet 10" contractors saw. While the dimensions are correct the height adjustment screws do not extend through the base of the insert, even when tightened down. Nor do the go far enough in from the bottom. Previously purchased Leecraft inserts had recessed screws which used an Allen wrench, but those screws will not work on the Rockler insert. Any suggestions?
Robert C on Feb 2, 2016
BEST ANSWER: Yea! Take it back. Rockler inserts are over-priced anyway

What are the screws for on the end and side underneath the plate?
Mark E on Sep 20, 2015
BEST ANSWER: The four screws visible in the picture are leveling screws to bring the insert level with the table top. There is a pin at the front/back of the insert to keep it from tilting up and out and there is an additional screw on the opposing side to tighten up the fit of the insert.
I previously purchased #69163. It had a finger hole for removal. The current picture does not show a finger hole. Has this been eliminated from the part?
bob m on Jan 7, 2017
BEST ANSWER: Replacement parts are manufactured over 5 to 7 years, if this is so with this part. The finger whole was cut to reduce manufacturing cost. If not so then for safety reasons.
Will it fit Delta 34-670?
Doug G on Mar 23, 2019

Will any of these fit a Bosch 4000 series table saw? After reading the review of the Bosch factory unit I'm inclined to search for a better quality zero-clearance insert.

Larry C on Sep 15, 2017
