I made the zero clearance plates for my Craftsman saw ( old style 1/8tk plate ) out of 3/8thick hickory from a pallet..
then used the router table and a rabbiting bit, to cut a 1/2 wide rabbit around the edge .. this left an 1/8tk ledge for the plate to sit on, with the centerpart 3/8....
countersink the screw hole and you are done....
