$73 jig changes tablesaw joinery
I admit it: I love everything that Bridge City makes, but I usually can’t afford the luxury. The Kerf Maker is something different. At $73, it is a bargain, considering what it does. After setting it to the kerf of your tablesaw blade, it stays set forever (until you set it up for another tool in the shop, like the mitersaw or bandsaw), working its simple magic. You have to see the video to understand how easy it will become to execute perfect tablesaw joinery for grids, drawers, shelf dadoes, box dividers, and so on. No more fussing with a dado set: Your standard tablesaw blade will do everything. The only exception might be joints where the bottom of the groove would be visible. For those I would use a flat-top blade of some kind, like a rip blade, to get a flat-bottomed groove.
