Default KM-1 and Stanley # 93

Some similarity but I don't really know how the Stanley works.

How cool is that?!? I wonder if John Economaki knows about the Stanley? Looks like you'd put the piece of wood (to be placed in the kerf) between the end plate and that small tooth, and then use the offset to set your table saw.

I can't even keep it clear in my mind how the KM-1 works so......

However, you can download a pdf of the original instructions for the 93 and check it out.

Ah! It's for hanging doors! Quite a different animal than the Kerfmaker...

Just think about it as a "flip stop" -- the first setting defines the width of the (saw) kerf and the second setting defines the width of the groove, dado, cross-lap, rabbet, etc. Cutting pass #1 cuts one side of the groove, flip the stop & move the fence or piece that distance and cut the other side, then make passes to remove the waste in the center of the first two passes.

That is a GREAT link Michael. You add so much good information to this forum! (No, I haven't been drinking ).
