One of the most difficult operations in my shop has been lining up dadoes consistently through two boards.
The most,common operation for this is to make book shelves that must bear considerable weight without warping.
The example shown here shows how I would go about ensuring my accuracy and controlling the depth of cut using a device called Dadowiz.

for more information on this technique please see my blog

Bob
The dadomax is distributed by Woodline in the US and Stockroom Supply in Canada. Thanks for the great demo of the tool, it looks very useful.

Good to know Bruce. Folks have asked me where to get one.
When you compare them with a decent set of dado blades it’s not all that bad and twice a fast for set ups.

I have one and love it. Just remember to get the clamp tight.

Thanks Lee.
It’s one of those tools that if I lost would go out and get the same one again.
The one called DadoMax looks abit esier to set up for calibration lbut essentially does the smaw thing.
As I said before, they are fast.
