Default Jerry?

Jerry-- Did Incra get this idea from your TS blade insert idea?

LOL. First thing I thought of when I saw that...

Default Top down dust collection.

Mike you can laugh if you want, but both ideas work very well. This is my new ZC plate for my old Grizzly.

For some reason I cannot upload a photo, it hangs up on 'Wait'.

Mike,
I guess I'm still just a bit dense, I don't understand the inserts, they look like they are for a router. Enlighten me if you will. I would very surprised if any my thinking would ever have any influence with Incra Tools.

The purpose of the holes is for dust collection as I understand it Jerry. According to what I've heard they work well.

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.

O.K. now I understand and can see why you would say what you said about my TS insert. Let's be very clear on the matter, it was Dick Willis that put me onto the concept, Dick has contributed so much to my learning curve, can't thank him enough, he is, IMHI, a great asset to the forum as well as good friend of mine. I salute you Dick, and am so glad that your have recovered enough to begin to participate on the forum again.

-You drilled holes in your TS insert to allow your DC to suck dust through the insert. It worked for you.

- Incra now adds holes through their router inserts to allow DC... Same reasons and principle as your idea.

When I saw that, I fondly remembered you and your idea. That was meant as a light hearted compliment to you Jerry.

Mike,
I understand and appreciate it, but Dick Willis needs to get the credit for the concept as I said above. I did take it as a compliment, just didn't get it the first time I looked at the photos, a little slow on the draw on my part.

So now my compliment I extend to Dick (who I hold in respect). I thought then and still think it was a good idea.

I will try again to upload a photo of my new ZC plate. The modified DC system on my saw is so tight this works well. Meanwhile take a look at this.
