The jig in your link looks unnecessarily complicated. A decent box-joint jig for the TS takes all of an hour to build. It’s not that hard. Whether made as a sled type to fit in your miter slots or one that bolts onto your miter gauge, the principle is the same.

The trick is to make sure your “key” and “spacer” is the proper size. This can be done by sizing a small block of wood to the exact width of your desired dado stack. A measuring caliper really makes it easy.

If you don’t want to build one, I know Rockler (among others) sells one for around $70, IIRC.
