Use any bit that can rout a channel.
We used this dish-carving bit to
create a 3/4"-wide relief necessary
for a 45 bevel cut insert.

Routing a relief channel

With option #3, rout a 1/4" channel along the bottom of the insert deep enough to give the blade initial clearance, photo right, when you place it in the saw. However, do not rout deeper than half the thickness of the insert. More than half would weaken it and create a potential safety hazard.

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?
