I just recently finished a ZCI for my Ridgid saw that is 3/32" lip at the edges that came with a steel plate that thickness. I used a piece of Corian that is 1/2" thick, and routed out a place for a replaceable wooden insert for the ZCI section. I need to get something better than MDF to use for that, but the main piece looks like it will work well. Jim.
