I read all the reviews and noticed that this item didn't work on the table saw. I didn't have the one mentioned so I thought I would take a chance to see if it worked. The throat plate was all good till I tried to turn the blade and it was hitting the plate. So back to HD I went and to return it. It need to be at least 1/4" longer and at least 1/2" wider to work. Unless Dewalt fixes the issue with the throat plate I do not recommend the purchase.

Rated 1.0 out of 5.0 by Sean DO NOT BUY FOR DWE7491RS
Welp kind of my fault as well as home depot's. I got everything setup on my DWE7491RS last night and tried to put my dado in, I was going to use it to make some half lap joints. To my dismay it does not fit this saw. They put it as a recommended item for this saw so I just assumed it was the right one. I thought it got low reviews just because people didn't know what they were doing. My bad on that. You need a DWE7402DI for your saw if you bought the same one I did. Amazon has them, homedepot from what I can see does not. *sigh*

I read a review that this did not work for their table saw. I checked to make sure I did not have the model number they said it didn't work for. I didn't so I bought it and it doesn't work for my saw either. I have model DWE7491RS and the hole in the throat plate was not in the right position to use a dado blade. My husband took it to our neighbor who used a plasma cutter to make the hole bigger, so now we can dado. It is a major disappointment when you spend thirty dollars on something that does not fit and there is not another option.

Rated 1.0 out of 5.0 by Golfer01 Doesn't fit my Dewalt saw.
Web site suggested this as an accessory for the Dewalt saw that I bought. It doesn't fit. Dewalt knows of the issue so Home Depot should remove the suggestion when purchasing or viewing the Dewalt 7490.

good quality constructing and fit. The instructions are clear and helpful with regards to setting up the dado to align with the throat plate

Rated 1.0 out of 5.0 by Caleb Be careful when buying.
This product does not work with the DWE7490X. I believe that they now sell a newer version of the three saws and this is not compatible with them. It still fits in the slot correctly but the hole is in the wrong place.
Dewalt has not released a throat plate for the DWE7490X yet and so I cannot make dado cuts with it. I am disappointed.

Great addition. Most tables only use a single size plate or a blank that you have to cut with your good wood blade. This allows you to swap out the plate and the blades in minutes to go from ripping to laying down a nice dado whitout having to disassemble your throat.
