Do folks here in the community know if this would fit other tablesaws? Is there a standard of sorts that throatplates or is it every manufacturer for themselves?

These are just as easy to make. Simply take your old throatplate out of your saw, lay it down on some wooden stock of equal thickness. Make a template by tracing around the throatplate. The cut your template out on the scroll saw (or by hand for). Drill the holes for the securing screws. Throw the dado plate on the arbor. Stick your blank throatplate back on the saw. Turn the saw on, then spin the blade up. In 20 minutes time you have now made yourself a zero clearance dado throatplate.

I'm going to make a table saw sled and in which case won't need the dado plate ..

The sled will also be more functional imo

1. There's a zillion guides on YouTube on how to make them, they are pretty simple

2. The issue is, some people want it to be as perfect as possible and dont trust their own skills.. like you're missing a few things this has with your own 'how to' even.. first off, it wont lock into place. This is a portable saw, not a cabinet saw. The other thing is, this comes with screws so you get a perfect balance (something that can be DIY'ed as well but adds more time / effort).

3. I've IRL seen dado inserts that're DIY'ed that get roughed up over time.. so you'd need to use a hardwood or keep making new ones every X amount of hours used.

But yeah.. most guys/girls just make their own.

My biggest tip: Watch YouTube videos and pay attention! Like for example, you want it REALLY tight where it might not even fit at first.. you keep sanding it down until you get it right. And keep one as a template so you can make more, more easily in the future.

seriously with a router table these dewalts take no time to make. You can make 15 of them them in no time.
1) take existing plate trace (can't remember the thickness ply i used as i don't have the saw anymore
2) rough cut with jigsaw/bandsaw
3) hot glue,tape cutout to existing plate
4) flush bit with bottom bearing

done. seriously the ease of making these is what i miss about that saw but i upgraded to the
large delta hybrid/contractor one and those plates are a pita!

meant to add save yourself some time by ripping long strips bit oversize on the ts first , then jigsaw is quick...probably can even do without if you cross cut them, then only talking some meat on the corners
