    Custom Zero-Clearance Throat Plates With Levelers

    It occurred to me almost instantly to tap out the 4 holes underneath the TP to a 10-24 thread. I had kind of cussed under my breath at the Ryobi factory for not tapping this there and adding the screws to my parts package. I also wondered why I hadnít seen this adjustment in the manual. I guess that was not the their intended purpose. Screw in 4 screws. I use stainless steel. Then you also drill your Tpís for these holes. 3/16Ēis the drill size that I use. This can vary up or down some. Then using the 3 OEM screws, attach the plate and adjust it flush with the 4 screws. Even if you have countersunk your other plates in the 4-hole area, you can drill out the other three and still adjust it flush. If you have used thicker plates though, you may have a problem. Just cut some thinner.

    I like to use 1⁄4Ē Lexan or Plexiglas. It mills easy, itís strong, itís thin enough, itís readily available, and itís see through. What more could you ask for.

    Another tip is when I make the plunge cut for the ZCTPís, I screw the new plate on top of the OEM plate using the 3 holes. This way you donít have to worry about breaking belts.

    • Special DIY T-bolt for BT3000 Miter Fence, Rip Fence and Rails
      by LCHIEN
      After a bit more thinking, some universal T-bolts for the rip miter fence make more sense than fixture blocks.
      The two big slots in the rip fence and the miter fence and the front and rear rails are sized to take 1.00 inches wide x 1/8th and 1-1/8" wide x 1/8th.

      So I took some 1/8th flat Aluminum 1.00 inches wide and cut 1-1/8" long to make a 1: x 1-1/8" rectangular plates; I used a short rip fence Block to space the length but not cause a kickback with the cutoff...

      DIY BT3000 FIXTURE BLOCK for Rip/Miter Fence extrusion

      Simple shop construction - no machining.


      This is intended to fit the top T-track on the Rip and miter fence (uses the same extrusion) on the Ryobi BT3x00 / Craftsman 22811 family of saws
      You must make the Block and Base parts; you can make them 1.5" or 3 inches long or modify to any other length.
      Make the base from 1/8” aluminum bar, you can get 1.5”, 2”, and 3” at Lowes...

    • Another Thin Strip Jig
      by twistsol
      Ripping thin strips can be accomplished in a number of ways, but this jig is the best I've found so far.

      • There is no need to move the fence so every strip comes out exactly the same.
      • It is incredibly easy to build
      • It keeps your hands well away from the blade the whole time
      • It keeps control of the strip you are ripping all the way through the cut and past the blade
      • It doesn't interfere with the blade guard.
      • You can cut strips from any length of stock
      In the starting position,...

      BT3000 tall rip fence

      09-12-2021, 07:58 PM
      I have had a tall BT3000 fence for a number of years, I should have used it a few days ago but I didn't because it was too much trouble, And I paid the price as the tall item was a little unstable and I had a hard time controlling it as the two pieces separated and wallowed out a bigger kerf than I wanted at one place.

      Anyway the BT3000 tall fence is generally held on by the T-slots in the side of the rip fence. This is...

    • Extending rails/rail profiles
      by LCHIEN


      I am finally going to use my BT3000 extension rails.
      My objective is to have some easily attachable rail extensions rather than a full time wide BT3000 using two full rails taking up a lot of space and requiring table support under the right side as many do.
      I just want some wider support but not to do full 4x8 sheets of ply... if I need that, I'll break the sheet down on some sawhorses with a circ saw and some guides.

      I think I am going to cut my extension...

    • Thingamajig
      by Dedpedal
      One of my early attempts at making mallets had me thinking how badly things could end up if my piece got away from me while cutting so I came up with this little jig sled to secure my work while cutting a 30į bevel on the end of the head.
      A simple flat piece of 1/2” birch plywood with a fence squared to bot the sled and blade with gussets on one side and push type toggle clamps on the other. Right now I have to manually place the stop block with double sided tape but working on a t track...
