The idea for that was from others projects and in fact it’s works very well and very accurate. I think that if you want to maximize the ability of a table saw with a simple blade (not dado) this jig is perfect. The main advantage is that you can made your pattern of the joint.

The only point that you have in mind in constraction is that the “stop” must have the same thickness as youw blade and the zero point must be exactly the first cut in the jig.

I like this solution because I can’t fit a dado blade (or even buy one here) to my saw. Nicely done. By ‘stop’ do you mean the squares on the rod? I ask because they look thicker than a typical 1/8” saw blade. Thanks for sharing this with us.

The blade of my table is a standard blade for dewalt dw745. The stop is at the back. As stop I have use an angle connector bracket but the blade is thicker than the connector bracket so I fill the bracket to have the same thickness with my blade as you see in the photo.

Pretty good jig and being able to use a regular saw blade is great .
I build a similar jig to fit on my saw sled and a couple things that I found add a little to this type of jig are using spacer blocks that vary as little as possible in thickness and making a removable pin from hardwood that can be matched to the saw blade thickness .see attached link .
