Default Zero Clearance Tape

I had a ZC plate for my Bosch 4100 benchtop saw, but didn't want to mess up the factory plate wit a 45 degree setting so I ordered a pack of ZC tape from Fast Cap. Took longer to open the plastic package than to install.

I made a couple of cuts, and it performed well. There are 5 strips in a pack and that will be more than enough for my needs.

They're supposed to help with miter saw cuts too. I may have to pick some up.

Chuck,that is what they were originally sold for, but someone must have used them on the TS, and now they advertise them for such. I have in the past used masking tape and duct tape, but they don't hold up long and eventually will roll up and stick to the bottom of the cut and cause a problem.

There was a question by a member of another forum ,if it changes the angle of the cut to be raised up the thickness of the tape on the cut end. Tomorrow I will cut and fit some miters and check them for square. The tape measures .53mm not sure how many inches that is.

I was just about to ask the same question. To get accurate angles you would have to coat the entire table with it. Not necessarily blanket the table, but enough strips to keep the project level to the blade angle.

I put it on the SCMS and haven't seen a problem with miter cut accuracy. But, I don't make picture frames, either. It does reduce tear out.
If it does cause a problem in the future, the shooting board will take care of it. But, a 1/64 would be problematic on a long bevel cut with the TS.

I think on a miter saw the solution was to put a piece on either side of the tables.

Someone I consider a master woodworker once told me that a master woodworker is not someone who never makes mistakes. He is someone who is able to cover them up so that no one can tell.

Bob,
Here are some pictures of an 8" piece that a couple of inches was cut off. They seemed acceptable, and longer pieces cross shouldn't be a problem, I agree with you and Gene on the ripping a miter angle and I think Chucks suggestion would remedy that.
