Just a little adjustable guide I added to my pull saw to accomplish consistent depth cutting .
A simple little add on that is easy to build . I cut two slots into the disposable blade and made a couple cheeks from jatoba with corresponding holes .
To set the depths of cut simply use piece to fit in dado as a gauge and tighten wing nuts .
Works for me.

I can appreciate this method. I’m really not inclined to drill holes in my LN DT saw though. I’m sure I can fashion a similar set of blocks around the spline though. Thanks for posting.

This is a nice idea and a great jig you made. I always need all the tips/tricks I can get.

It’s a replacement blade that costs $ 2.50 so I don’t worry .
But what you are saying makes sense on a more expensive saw .
Just a couple of cheeks with slots and a thin spacer would do the same.

I was thinking that slots in the wood stop would be better than drilling / cutting the saw. Very nice work though and very creative.

@ Rance—would rare earth magnets work so you didn’t have to drill holes?

I hope I can use it on my circular saw, too. LOL
Nice jig. I think someone should write a book about stop blocks. I’d be interested at least.
Thanks for posting.

Nice thinkin’. It reminds me of the stair maker’s saw a buddy brought into work the other day. You can adjust the blade depth for stopped cuts in much the same way.
