Exclamation Dado jig

Today, I went into the "shed" to try and make a copy of BJ's dado jig.

I was using 1" CMT cutter attached to the new Triton TRB001 in my new router table.

I cut the slot to just under 1" wide and then glued on an end piece so that the router would not force the 'prongs apart.

I want to make the slot 1 1/2" wide to give more flexibility.

Safety: I had the cord hanging from the clothes line so that It would be easy and convenient to unplug the router while making cutter adjustments.

While I was waiting for the glue on end piece to dry, I had another attempt at making a working jointer fence.

I finally got the jointer to work correctly. I then had fun jointing many sticks for an hour or so. I guess this is another milestone in the journey.

It's good to see you making sawdust James and on that swanky new table. One thing does bother me though, the first shot looks rather dangerous to me, could you please explain it to me.

I did not consider the cut dangerous, Harry.

First and second cut (at half depth and full depth) the cutter is cutting on both sides.

On subsequent cuts the fence is moved away from the cutter, by a mm or so each time, so that the timber is fed into the cutter with only the cutter edge furtherest from the fence cutting.

After the second cut, I was only taking about 1 mm off each time.
