That is really slick. I have never see one of those blades before. It looks like the measurement have to be right on for it to fold that neatly!!

thanks for sharing!!

I see an announcement from Rockler that a dado-like table saw blade will be coming out to do this. A neat and efficient way to get locked miters without any “waste”.

Well then, congrats!

I know dado stacks are all different, but a way to replace a stacks side cutter with the beveled blade (cheaper retro-fit application) would be awesome.

This design is going to make mitered boxes so much easier. I hope it helps fund your next excellent idea!

Now on the Rockler website for $349.99. Great for utility boxes where you need a half inch base. It can also be used for inserting lighter bases by crosscutting the sides. I wonder how it would work on veneered boxes ? I think it would need to be finessed to cut just under the veneer to maintain the grain continuity ?

Selling only the specialty miter fold blade to work with an existing dado is just not practical, as dado diameters vary, and you would need to a custom grind for each blade match the customer’s dado diameter. This would mean shipping in the dado blade, measurements and custom machine set-ups, it could be done, but would be over the moon expensive. Much better to manufacture a miter fold blade and dado that sell as a set.

I know this is a few months old now, but I’m just seeing it and it really caught my attention. I looked up the blade set at Rockler and OMG, have they lost their minds? $350 for a dado set??? I realize that it’s a specialty blade and all, but you can get a great dado stack set for $150 or less. I wish them the best with their sales, but they just pretty much just eliminated the justification for the average home shop woodworker to buy this blade set with the price. If I had a cabinet shop, there’s no doubt that I’d already have one of these, but I don’t make nearly enough drawers to justify that kind of money to save a little extra work on my part.
