That’s awesome! I don’t see an index pin. Do you crank it for each pass?

Hi,
answer for your qustion:
I use 4 and 6mm saw blade. dado is not allow in Norway. And i’ve not find any blade on the web for my tablesaw.
I’ve a index, look at pic #2 its a brass nail nearly touch the corner on the plywood (blue arrow).

Please share the source of the bearings and track with us. I could think of several uses.

Hi,
Linear Bearing & rail is very expensive issues. see the link below. ok to buy used if it is well maintained. very durable.
my bearing is star, same as Bosch Rexrot

It’s a wonderful jig.

Speaking of linear bearings, where is August Lehman? I haven’t see him around in a while. He’s got more linear bearings than I’ve got sense.

Hey Lars,
Den kæmpe fin!
That is a really cool jig, I think I will have to look into this since we have no dado sets in Denmark and I would like to be able to make fingerjoints on my table saw.
Thanks for sharing.

thanks for the link. Price is not too bad, but I have some studying to do before I can figure out what is needed :)
