Introduction: Chop Saw Insert

Fashion a zero clearance insert for a miter saw to prevent tear out.

Step 1: Stock Width

Remove the saw insert and cut a piece of stock to fit snugly in the insert space.

Step 2: Depth

Cut the edges of the insert piece to sit flush with the saw top.

Step 3: Round Edge

Trace the saw insert edge onto the wood piece. Sand the piece.

Step 4: Fit

Remove any wood from the underside of the piece to allow for a snug fit.

Step 5: Screw Holes

Use the insert as a template to drill screw holes. Countersink the holes. Place the new insert on the saw and cut a slot for the blade.

Step 6: Finish

Give the insert a few coats of Danish Oil.

Step 7: Fasten

Screw the insert in place.
