Hello,

I needed to cut a slot in some stock and my saw blade made too wide of a kerf so I made a jig to enable me to use the Kerfmaker with the slot cutter to get a perfect kerf!

Here is the jig in use:

I made the jig with some T-slot bar, a couple of 90 degree brackets and a miter slot bar that locks in place like a feather board does:

The jig works well and gives me one more option to get perfectly sized grooves in my projects.

Cool, Rutager. But I'm being dense: why do you need the KM?

Peter,

The Kermaker is calibrated to the slot(kerf) that the cutter makes and to the thickness of my stock that needs to go in the slot. I set the cutter to where I wanted to start my slot and then set the KM-1 on it and set the stop on my jig, then I made the first cut, then flipped the KM-1 and raised the cutter to touch it, then made my second cut. I hope this helps.
