    How do you get the rod to match the dado stack size perfectly?

      Stacked dado units have shims to fit between chippers for a super fine fit.

    Thank you for the tutorial. I will try to repeat this guide with blades from Avenger.

    Love the simplicity of this with a conventional saw bench, but alas, not all of us are that lucky, I wish it was that simple for me, my saw bench doesn’t do DADO BLADES, mine is a Triton portable and have made a Incra style incremental jig which gives a broader range of finger sizes, of which I can change with each finger size as I go, of which also is great for hinge top boxes to be able to allow the top section to be cut after assembly. I love your videos and your simplistic way to make great useful items, Thank You, Kev

    My box joints came out way too loose. Any ideas?

      Tap the side of you jig so that the pin will move away from the saw blade. Your joint will tighten up. There should be enough play in the screws holding your jig to the miter.

    Thanks for the great photo guide for making the dado jig for finger joints. Everything worked fine but I found the step where you use a rod spacer between the fixed rod and the dado blade to be cumbersome and not very accurate. After a few trials with mixed results, I screwed a vertical guide in the right location on the face of the jig and then cut the outside finger knotch on 20 pieces for my 10 cabinet drawers. Doing this made them accurate and identical. After completing all the first knotches, I removed the vertical guide and continued cutting the rest of the knotches using the fixed rod. Perfect!

    Thanks again for your great instruction.
