It worked well for me. I put in a smaller blade to get the proper clearance, put the insert in, clamped it down, and turned the blade back up very slowly until the slot was cut.

Now, I have a belt drive table, so if the blade binds, at worst I need to buy a new belt. I did have a finger on the off switch the whole time.
