That's all well and good but you're kinda putting the cart before the horse when it comes to the ZCI if you're planning to buy one rather than make your own. Depending on what you select for your new blade, the kerf could be different than what you now have with the OEM blade. If the OEM blade is full kerf and you buy a thin kerf replacement blade, the end result would be that the insert would no longer be zero clearance. On the plus side, ZCI's are easy to make. If you make your own, make a bunch at a time then you'll always have a blank ready if you need one for different sized dado cuts.
