I was looking at this little tool and it is of course very attractive – form and function. Some questions – can it perform the same functions as the kerfmaker as well or is it just for mortises? How often do you really reach for it? Was it worth the $$$ ?

thanks

How could I have missed that! Thanks much for the insight. You are always a step ahead when it comes to cool tools. It like my father used to say: While you are on your way know that I have been there and back a few times.

I smile, thank you!
I made mine before they had theirs ready for sale on the marked. I did it for the challange, I looked at the videos, and figured out how it was working, then it was ‘just’ to build it.
One of my friends had ordered one from them, and he was a little annoid but with a smile, that I had one before him.
(I only used it for some test cuts, did no tennons since… lol)
I think many on LJ missed my post since it was so new not a lot knew what it was I had made, and thought it was another kerfmarker.
It’s a col idea this tool, but not the only way. A old LJ wrote me it took him some time to figure out what this was, and then he realized it was the replacement for those pieces of carton he had that matched the thikness of his different tablesawblades, and this is the truth. It is just a help tool to add the blade thicknes as a parameter to a cut.
Best thoughts,
Mads
