Leecraft Table Saw Inserts
For years we have made MDF, Hardwood and plywood inserts for both of our table saws.  They many times did not fit well got dropped, chipped or just thrown away, in frustration.  We are pleased to announce that we have solved these problems.  LEECRAFT Zero-Clearance Table Saw Insert is now the only one that we use on our Delta and Jet table saws…
The concept is simple; the blade cuts it's own exact size slot by being raised up through a machinable "blank" insert.  Safety is increased by eliminating the wood-swallowing gap common to standard metal inserts.  They are precision CNC machined from 1/2" thick high-density phenolic with bonded melamine surface - providing superior rigidity, flatness, durability, and low friction.  User-friendly features include top-accessible leveling screws, lateral adjustment screws for a vibration free fit, anti-lift pin (AFDDL-1U & AFDCR-1 only), finger hole for easy removal, and a pre-cut bottom recess that clears blade during installation. These inserts perform better, last longer, and are easier to set up than the cheaper plastic or MDF, or home made wood inserts.  Instructions included.  Measure your insert carefully before ordering.
