For the true galoot with a big budget. Ship date appears to be April. The video at the bottom of the page is worth watching if you had not seen it.

Looks like they are also introducing a single sliding table version (Jointmaker SW) for a bit less…

Big coin, but very cool in it’s precision capabilities. Love the dovetail setup. No more going too deep or too shallow. Pretty cool man. Thanks for posting. This would be for the Hybrid-Galoot, though, wouldn’t it? ;)

Is anyone using one of these?
I watched the video and it was intriguing .
I wondered how fast it is to set up and to change over?

Now look what you have gone and done! Just when I though I had everything I need! :-))

Very cool, especially for galoots. A little expensive, but the price would be entirely justified for someone, say, living in an apartment that wanted to get into woodworking.

I was also thinking this would be a great box making tool. Very precise. Too bad I have to buy a new car….

There was a time when my shop actually made money that I would have bought it. Bridge City makes nothing but fantastic products. I wouldn’t trade mine for anything. When this economy turns around I know I will buy more.

Looking at their site, I saw the bridge city version of the KerfMaker tool. Another interesting video as they used it with the Joint Maker Pro. The video is at the bottom of the page. I really liked the way you could adlust the tool for the width of the blade making the kerf.

Wayne—-FYI, I believe the Bridge City “version” is the one everyone else is copying. There was a thread on this a while back when someone basically copied it. John with Bridge City was very gracious in the way he handled that.

I was guessing that is where it had come from. Hard to beat some of the features on the original. I am thinking of ordering one as Christmas present to myself.
