Here are a couple of pictures of my saw and the plate that it has. The plate is 11/64" at the rolled side and where the screws are and 3/64" on the flat edge.
There are two supports next to the where the screws go that are 3/64" below the table top. The left side of the cutout is tapered and the right side has two lips that the plate sits on.
I'm thinking that I might try routing out a piece of 1/4" plywood to make a new zero clearance plate. Home Depot has this particle board: http://www.homedepot.com/Lumber-Comp...1#.UE0CW5ZjW2U
does anyone have an opinion on which would be better. I have a Dremel router setup that I've never used so I guess I'm going to learn a new skill.
Thanks in advance for your comments.
