Kerfmate for SawStop owners

Sometimes when Friday arrives, your mind can’t help but start cutting outside the lines a bit.
Like wondering if with the recent wave of KerfMaker spin-offs on LumberJocks, Sawstop owners will realize they don’t really need a kerfmaker.

Kerfmaker for Sawstop

Just gauge the board between your fingers, then saw out the waste until you feel a little pinch and the saw stops. Then reset it (and replace the blade and cartridge) and continue in the other direction.

Or wondering if the Veritas Catalog arrives in Gotham City before it arrives at my doorstep?
Veritas Dovetail Saw

Happy Friday Lumber Jocks!

You’ve been helping Mads to empty all of the wine boxes he keeps emptying. That is just “wrong” on so many different levels. Of course, you know some bone-head will actually try it and there will be a lawsuit and it will just not be any fun anymore. Have a great weekend gents.

Yes yes, important disclaimers.
1) Your wood may get some red stains on it if you flinch. If you don’t flinch, the part that gets blood on it will reside in the part removed by the kerfs.

2) These are not things I actually do. In fact if you look close you can see the rust on the tips of the saw blades. Haven’t used my table saw in some time. These are for humor only.

3) If you anyone thinks about trying this, they should not. Just ask Herb. He will caution against it.

4) These are not the ramblings of a man who has had too much wine from a wooden wine crates that make cool tool cases. My wine comes in cardboard. Sometimes separated in glass containers, sometime not.

I think acually you should add on the picture, and in the beginning of the text, DO NOT DO THIS!
Since some idiot might do it, and get hurt. (And you might end up with a heavy law suit).
From Batman to Splatman is what might happen!

But then again looking at this, I think he will just have 60 dollar less in his pocket for each try!

$60 per cartridge, plus a new blade …. so using the NOT RECOMMENDED method a single kerf cut for a block of wood will cost ~$300. Mafe when you have a chance, please post that “after” photo of Batman using the Sawshok method of kerf making. That was classic, but I don’t want to share it without your permission.

Mafe when I translate that little phrase up there I get “Jaimie is not a drunkard” Who is Jaimie? Is he smart enough not to cut his fingers off?
