I second the call for the Grrripper. I bought one when I bought my table saw, haven't looked back. I got the slightly bigger kit as it comes with a few more attachments, including a plate to join two units together.
One day I might splash out on a second one and try this out if I'm doing long stock cutting.

And I’ll add a third to that call on the Grrriper - I bought a knockoff that appears to be made identically. Hugely important tool.

I use the FastCap Zero Clearance tape instead of making zero clearance inserts for my 4100. They work great.

They work for Table Saws too. If you have a ZC insert that has a ragged slot, it will restore it to new again. I run it back to the back edge of the saw table to keep the miter gauge from catching on it, and make a cut at the forward and rear ends of the insert so the insert can be removed.

I bought some and keep forgetting to put it on my sliding miter saw. Thanks for the reminder. I'll do that today.

Now that's a great idea...!

Does the edge of the tape catch the workpiece at all...?

It might a little if you slide it over. No biggy tho.
