Because the insert rests on top of
the saw, secure it firmly with
double-faced tape and a board

Your second option is to adhere the blank onto the metal insert plate, clamp it in place, and then slowly raise your spinning 10" blade until it just pokes through the plywood blank, photo right. Now separate the two plates and install the zero-clearance insert over the blade.

I don't understand "you can do this with your tablesaw and 10" blade--with the original insert installed--if the relief exits the back of the insert." How do you cut the riving knife slot using the tablesaw itself. This sounds dangerous. Do you put the blade through the precut slot?
