  • Bandsaw table insert?

    Is there any direct replacement for the insert?
    Every place I checked are out of stock or discounted.

    Tried some after market ones and they don't fit right even after modifying them.

    did you check the ridgid parts online?

    when i check i see 613 available at $0.85 each.

    at that price buy a dozen, the shipping won't change much and you'll never be wanting.

        I'd just make one out of hardwood . Have a few wood ones for My 12" table saw
        I can build anything You want , if you draw a picture of it , on the back of a big enough check .

            for 85 cents each it's not worth the trouble to make one.

            now if you had some material (maybe wood) that you could turn on a lathe to the correct diameter then take 1/8" slices off that would work.
            not sure about the ridgid bandsaws but many of this style bandsaw the insert has a rabbit around the edge so now you need to cut that. then cut the kerf for the blade and you want it in the correct spot so it does not drag the blade left or right and out of plumb. of course you can adjust the upper and lower guides to square the blade again but that's another 15 minutes of your day gone.

            just buy the stinking things already. we've wasted more than 85 cents just talking about trying to save 85 cents.

            if you need one today make one, if not order a few and don't get caught off guard in the future. keep a couple spares on hand.
