Mike; yup that's my plan. Gary mentioned the shaper head late on in the conversation; it's the perfect solution. i have one, but not the knives i need for it, so back to plan A...my original question " is it safe"? Stick and Charles told me to just do it! ;)

(i heard you guys had a bet going that I couldn't find it...)
I'm shocked. I saw a picture of your shop once and I was betting that you don't even know what the floor looks like anymore.>:)

I didn't need to turn them on; lots of daylight with the garage door open. :)
as impossible as it looked to find or even get to you must open it from the outside.. eh...

Charles; you're a genius! How did you even remember it was in there???

I do have it... it's more of a bushing than a washer. It's 1.5" in dia. and .310" thick, about 5/16".
I stacked my two outer dado blades horizontally with that bushing in between. My caliper suggests about .29+/-" as the space equaling the tongue after cutting. That'll probably shrink a bit once I mount them on the arbor and tighten them down.
I may have to mount a couple of chippers to get a wide enough cut ie all the waste removed across the thickness of the boards.

I use mine occasionally. Maybe more like rarely but once in a great while it winds up being the best tool for the job.
