Table Saw Insert for Ripping Thin Strips Woodworking Plan

Ripping small strips on a table saw can be both troublesome and dangerous. The opening between the blade and the insert is just wide enough to allow narrow strips to jam the blade. What's the solution? Replace your saw's metal insert with a custom-made zero-clearance insert.

In this Tools & Techniques article, we'll show you step-by-step how to make the insert using UHMW plastic and a scrap piece of hardboard. We'll also include our shop secrets for ripping strips to the exact same thickness every time!
