Default Woodpecker's newest

For those who collect/use Woodpecker's One-Time-Tools -- a Dado Set-Up Fixture!

Had to do a double take while watching the video as the demonstrator was cutting dadoes on the table saw and not using a throat plate.

Ray; great catch! You wonder why something hasn't been previously invented/brought to market(?).
That's an 'I need that' tool; beats the Hell out of the alternatives.

Ray - I've heard of removing guards for clarity when filming, but a throat plate? Not something I would recommend On the other hand he's only hogging out material so nothing should fall into the spinning blade.

Dan - I get a ton of email from Woodpeckers - a lot of their products seem well-made but it also seems they're always reinventing the wheel. Now if I had a boat load of money, I'd invest in some of their squares - they are pretty expensive.

Either lead, follow, or get out of the way.

That's pretty neat.

Somewhere, I read about a guy that made a bunch of dados using every set up he had...chippers and/or spacers. Then he labeled each one along with what was in each stack.
Not as versatile but, not $169 either.

RainMan:"Tempting"?? Definitely looks like a well thought out and Made-In-The-USA tool, that just might be handy at times.

But -- and there always is a "but", I would definitely need to think 'bout this one. The dado set up fixture is US$69.99, but then I realized that the "Gap gauges" are extra or available as a for US$170.00 plus shipping. Would need to think just how often I would actually use it....

New contest!
An inexpensive DIY alternative to the Woodpecker package?
It can't end up costing more than the commercial model.
Cheap digital/analog calipers are a given.

So basically, you're saying "think of something FOR ME to invent"

Thanks, Ray...Woodpecker's makes some really neat stuff...but out of my reach...

Obviously these one time runs must be profitable, although I can't imagine how. There must be a following out there...
