      definately make your own... Make a bunch of them for your popular sizes. The saw is coming back, or not coming back depending on which side you believe... Ridgid's marketing people must be smoking crack or something... it's a great saw.... Just added a router top extension with a Triton 3 1/4 router... SWEEEETTTT!

        Just make your own. Get some 1/2" oak, rough cut to general dimension, double sided tape the OE insert, pattern bit on the router. Get four or five 1/4" x 20 inserts so you can level it and you are there.

        This assumes you have a router.

        There are a couple more things to know and do and if you are going to make your own insert I can provide a more detailed step through.

            As mentioned, make your own. Very easy and affordable. I used some scrap 1/4" hardboard with some screws to level. And welcome to the forum.
