    Thinking about buying this

    Seems that it would be simpler/easier that setting up the dado on the TS and playing with shims.
    Peachtree has it on sale for about $50.00 but the sale ends on 12/31
    I have an order for a bookshelf and I'm thinking about giving this a try.

    I don't know Bob I never found that uetting up the Dado stack was that much of a hassel. I got to where I can do it almost without thinking. I used a sled with mine.

    I wasn't really worried. I plan on having my RAS set up (someday soon) to just do dados and some cross cuts and keep my TS basically for ripping. I find it to be a pain in the butt to experiment with shims in getting the perfect fit. This gizmo automatically sets the exact width for whatever thickness material you are using. I thought it may be a time saver as well because I usually use my router plane to clean up my dados. Besides, I can't count how many times I think that I've cut all my dados or rabbets and put the saw blade back on only to find out I missed a few

    Now finishing is another topic. I sure wish you were closer because I always fear that I'm going to ruin my project by doing a crappy job on the finish.

    a easy way to do dados even with a router is set it for one size and use the table saw to make the tenon part a common size.. like alan bienlien did on his cabinets..
