Table Saw Insert Caddy

Whenever I get a new blade for my table saw, I generally make (or buy) a new table saw insert so that I have a zero-clearance insert to match each blade. As you might imagine, I have accumulated quite the collection of table saw inserts over the years. In order to better organise the inserts, I made the handy caddy you see above.

PLYWOOD PROJECT. The front, bottom and back have aligning grooves. I cut all of the grooves in one oversized piece and then cut the three parts to size. Cut 19mm-wide rebates in the front, sides and back before assembling the caddy with glue. For clearance to install on a pegboard panel, I chamfered the upper back edges.

SAFETY IN THE WORKSHOP Safety devices, such as riving knives, guards on table saws and guards over router bits have been deliberately left out of the line drawings in Australian Woodsmith projects in order to make them easier to follow. It goes without saying that where safety devices have been supplied by the manufacturers you should use them. We encourage the use of push sticks as good work practice.
    Exercise vigilance and the greatest of care when using power tools, whether stationary or portable. Keep all your tools sharp and well maintained. Wear protective eyewear, a dust mask and a hearing protector when appropriate. By limiting distractions and developing safe work practices you will go a long way to avoiding workshop accidents. So, work safe fellow woodworkers.  -Editor
