This is one of the prettier ones I have seen! Very nice.
(As a side note, I always have to remind myself how to use these whenever I see one posted, and then I decide I have to build one myself, but then I never do. I guess if I ever do build one I’ll have to just keep an instruction sheet wrapped around it to remind myself how to use the thing!)

Beautiful tool, now I guess I’m going to have to make one of these too. This could be the start of the kerf makers owners club. Very nice use of materials

David I was exactly the same even now I have to think about it, I guess my brains not wired up the same way as most.Ben I made all the parts with a tongue & groove to run on & cut all the slots with a 6mm spiral upcut router cutter & recut the slots using a ball end cutter, I made the little thumbwheels out of brass bar turned to7/8” knurled the outside & tapped the hole to 6mm & used stainless bolts my workshop gets quite cold & damp in winter so rust is a problem
