This is the new original KIEFER jig I mentioned when I posted the Prairie picture .
I designed this jig to cut dados and lap joints and do it simply with this jig and eliminate the kerf maker .
Watch the video and see how simple it is and subscribe to my channel it’s easy just hit the subscribe button I would appreciate it and a thumps up would be nice too.

Here is the video link

I made a change to the mounting bracket which I think is a better solution

Thanks Klaus /Kiefer

I watched the video Klaus and liked it a lot. I subscribed and gave it a thumbs up. It looks like a future build for me and I promise it won’t be made out of MDF. LOL. Just a suggestion, I would get rid of the wing nuts and replacing it with knobs and shorter bolts, don’t want to see any blood from reaching over them. With a simple jig like this, maybe I’ll make more lap joints.

Thanks Dave
The bolts are no problem but I may put on some red vinyl caps but the bolts need to be that long in case I need to raise the jig with a stand of for thicker material .
Glad you watched and liked the video .

Klaus,

Another great jig…

... BUT, in comparing the usage, isn’t the Kerfmaker Easier & Simpler to use while not taking up so much space?

You told me to take some time off. And look at you go! I swear you don’t sleep at all. LOL!
Very clever coming up with this idea Klaus! I watched the video also and there is noting like having good video to explain how things work!
Thanks for sharing your great work!

This jig is very nice and practical and it will be a great addition to your shop. I also like the way it is added to your sled. It’s easily installed and removed. Nice work, Klaus.
