Threaded Insert missing on Slab Mill

One of the threaded inserts for holding down the clamp boards is missing. If you leave one on the table I will install before class this evening

Upon further review; it looks like the insert probably got pulled out when tightened neg the the bolt. The insert are full of sawdust and the bolt probably bound up before it was fully inserted. Need a way for the inserts to be bottomless so sawdust drops thru.

And/or emphasize during training the need to vacuum out the inserts …

I tried to clear them with an assortment of vacuums this morning but needed a pick to loosen up packed in dust.
