Zero Clearance Throat Plate

A 12" Sliding Compound Miter Saw with Adjustable Laser, since 2001,  is the backbone of my stock preparation and when fitted with a: 96 Tooth Ultra-Smooth Crosscutting Saw Blade gives cabinet grade fit and finish.

The only down side are the: Adjustable Throat Plates.  It’s  two  plastic inserts that come up short for fine work, 100% functional in general .. but I want to improve it.So now we have a hardwood, one piece Zero Clearance plate.  The dark hue hardwood will help contrast with most of the lighter wood I prefer to work... Life's Good.  Note: on  Jigs – Fixtures and zero clearance inserts,  coat them with a good quality paste wax. Nice small project while the glue dries on the cupboard doors: ..
