why are you not using your router?
Just my preference.
I like the "linearity" of the cutting action over bit rotation for this particular joint.
If you always use the same dado blade, once the “kiss” is done all one has to do is turn a knob to set any width of finger (within the limits) by dialing in a practice cut.
A change in joint width on a router would require a new kiss and I find it a little more difficult to find top dead center of cut on a router bit than simply kissing a tooth on a table saw blade.
Work surface on my table saw is larger, nicer to work on and a little more quiet, too.
Bill Huber uses his Ibox on with this router table setup
, looks pretty good for those who prefer to spin cut the joints.

Yep, that’s similar to the one I made and used for years, fine adjustment is great but one still needs to figure out the initial setup, the Ibox is much easier to dial in…. it’s almost embarrassing how easy it is.

I followed posts from guy on Sawmill Creek, brilliant concept.
