I used the simple kerfmaker that Steve (SPalm) made and added a screw to adjust for the blade thickness. It works great. Thanks Steve.

Steve, this looks like a useful tool and the screw adjustment is a nice idea.

Do I have to wait for the next revision before I try to make mine. I’m sure that revision 5 or 6 will be the best.

This version will move the dado the width of the kerf. I guess if you are aware of where the dado will be, it doesn’t matter. Might be a good thing you waited Karson :-)) Check it out here:

That’s what I like, simple but efficient. Now, I’ve got to make one! Sometimes you guys just make it too easy (Why didn’t I think of that!). Thanks.

Are we patent thieving? Not that I care, just curious.

If you don’t make it to sell then you are not patent infringing. You can make all you want for yourself.

I never know I needed one of these till about a week ago. last night I was thinking of this little device, wondering to myself how handy it would be as I was using my calipers and dial indicator to set the fence for a dado… I might have to give this a try.

Karson, i have the next version :-)) Might be a while before I build it, but I’m going to move the adjustment screw to the other piece. It will have to be a bit shorter than the piece with the ‘L’. The screw will be backed out just enough to leave the kerf thickness as a bit of “reveal” on the end of the ‘L’ piece. This will put the cut back where it was on the original. I will be easier for me to keep track of where the cut is going to be. That may or may not matter to others. I will probably epoxy a small machine screw nut to recieve the adjuster screw, something like 10-32. Using green Locktitte will keep it from vibrating out of adjustment. I think a backed out wood screw would loosen up after a few adjustments.
