I made this one and it has worked well for me. Not sure what you mean by “adjustable depth”. Just raise or lower the blade?

Moke:

The one key I have found to good spline joints is to flip the female – the dado, such that the dado is centered on the board – assuming that most want centered splines. The dado should be slightly (1/64, or so) deeper than the tenon; so that the tenon doesn’t bottom-out inside the dado.

If you’re going to be doing a lot of these, Sommerfeld Tools has an excellent process – I’ve used it several times on Blanket Chests – these happen to be off-center.

Thanks, I meant the ability to go rather deep and it is for boxes…I should have specified…...but your jig looks awesome for picture frames.

The jig shown in the video link looks pretty good.

On a side note—I find it interesting/funny that the Drunken Woodworker was able to get sponsorship money from a company (micro-jig) that makes safety oriented products.

Hey guys…I shouldn’t do this, but it is my post…. is this new grip the same size as the old one….in other words it still “plugs” into the same receptacle on the machines…they haven’t changed sizes right?

I’m assuming they replaced it because the old ones broke….DAMHIKT
