New dado insert for my Skil 3410 table saw

I recently wrote an post on making a zero clearance insert plate for my table saw.  The main reason that I made that insert was because I could not find a dado insert made for my table saw.  I did some more searching and finally found one on  In the description it gave the model number for the part it was replacing.  I then took that model number and plugged it into the search on the Skil site and was able to find the OEM part!  It did not give a picture and only gave a description of “Dado Insert Kit for 3410 Table Saw”.  The after market website had a small picture that showed a nut and washer so I was cautiously optimistic that this one would come with one too.  It turns out that it did come with a new washer/nut combo for the arbor that is slimmer and I can now install my full dado stack!

Here’s the pic from the after market website.
I felt like a kid on Christmas when it finally got here.
That was a pretty big box just to ship this little one but it got here safe!
Out of the box.
No question about it, it’s made for my table saw!

Here it is with a nut/washer combo and another washer that replaces the one on the other side of the blade.

Here’s all my inserts.

This is the zero clearance insert that I made.

Here is the new one installed with a 1/2″ dado stack.  There is plenty of room
to fit in the whole 13/16″ stack!
Here is the old washer/nut combo next to the new one.

Your site gave me hope, but then I did the same, got the part number by going to the first website, then went to the OEM site and entered the info. It said: “This SAP obsolete item has been discontinued and is no longer available.” So bummed. Found one on Amazon though! Hoping it comes through. Although now I’m very curious why they would discontinue the part. Oy. Thank you for posting!

I am finding “discontinued” Everywhere I looked… lovely.

Can I ask… did you make your own insert using 1/8″ hardboard ? In a pinch, that is what I did also. Not sure I can find 1/8 hardWOOD around me.

    Yes, I used 1/8″ thick hard board. I’ve had good luck with finding hardwood at I believe that they also sell hardwoods at 1/8″ thicknesses.

Hi, I have a skil model 3310 table saw and was wondering if the dado insert you bought would fit my table saw. Your standard insert looks similar to mine.
Are your dado blades 6” or 8” ? I believe our single blades are 10”. Thanks for your reply.

    I just checked the website and the dado insert is no longer offered for either saw. I also checked the standard insert plates and the shapes are slightly different and the clips that hold them in are totally different. I use a standard 10″ blade for normal cuts and have an 8″ dado stack.

Hey people; I’ve been searching and had the same (no)luck as everybody else until I tried Toolmarts, I hope it gets here soon!
