This table insert is solidly built (looks like it is machined-milled for accuracy) out of some high density synthetic material. It is about .75in thick, with the top face being laminated in a melamine material (NOT red as pictured, but marbled peach color); very smooth for work to slide over.
The underside has a portion of pre-cut so that you are not raising the table saw blade through .75in of material; I would say about 3/8" of material is what the blade has to work through. Behind that is a pocket milled out for the knife (if you have one); again the material you have to cut through is not the full thickness but rather 3/8". I do not use my table saw knife and have no idea how hard it is to cut through accurately.
There is no metal contact for the insert to be held in by the magnet in the table; there is a set screw (phillips screw) in the back of insert to take up any blade-parallel movement.It works quite effectively.
When the blade moves through the material, there is no rip out; go slow to be careful. I had my fence over a portion of the insert during this process just to make sure that there would be no up-lift in the piece.
Very rigid material, no walking or tipping, very sturdy, material slides over it smoothly. Great quality product.
I'd give it 5 stars except for the way in which the riving knife and anti-kickback devices come through. The outlines they have on this are not quite correct and it took a drill press and a chisel to get the holes right. That's not too bad because I have purchased 4 of these, one for the standard kerf blade, another for a thin kerf, #3 for my dado and #4 for a Freud box joint cutting blade.
Not only would I recommend these but I plan on buy several more just to have on hand. I'd like one for 45 degree angle cuts.
Overall I'm pleased with the product. It is exciting to see the zero
clearance face. I would recommend these and plan on purchasing a couple
of more even though I can make my own. The insert fit perfect and the
tension screw was the key -- an added bonus.
I do take issue with multiple materials being used to make the CR-4. It
would be much better as a solid piece of high density phenolic laminate.
The result of being more than one piece is that the top material
As in my case, the melamine face cracked and I used hot glue to somewhat
seal it. While it is still usable, it's disturbing to pay $35.00 a piece
and have a problem with the face chipping before ever being used. The
melamine face chips / breaks away way to easy when cutting the riving knife
hole, even when using a drill press to get the corner holes perfect.
Also, the e-mail provided for comments in the package "firstname.lastname@example.org" does not work.
for when I use a dado. Worth every penny.
Only gripe with it is that I have to redo the leveling screws when I switch between this and the stock insert. I'm not going to deduct a star for that because that's probably to be expected, it's just an annoyance.
It also throws up a lot of sawdust, but I assume all zero-clearance inserts do that.
Stock insert is 4.085" wide and this Leecraft insert is 4.055" wide.
Sending this back!
Update 4/13/2015: OK, so I purchased the Sears Craftsman zero insert clearance and it fits PERFECTO!!! I can't really vouch for the service life of the Craftsman insert as it's made from plastic. I would urge Leecraft to up their game and fix their ill fitting (but VERY nicely made) insert.
