  • Bandsaw Zero Clearance Insert

    I have a BS1400 bandsaw. Does anyone have any experience with these zero clearance inserts and their fit on this saw?

    I have the Rockler inserts on a 14" Jet BS and they are OK. It is tough to cut the initial slot so the insert fits properly and since a bandsaw blade tends to flex the blade slot distorts and get wider, negating the ZC benefit. A ZC insert works great on a tablesaw, but on a bandsaw they are of limited value. I wouldn't buy them again.

      Yeah you make a good point. I need a replacement hence the thought process of buying a few for zero clearance. I'll just scoop up a stock replacement.
