Cut tight-fitting lap joints, grooves and dados using only a piece of the actual stock for setup, and the KM-1 Kerfmaker to position your cuts. Just set the Kerfmaker for the width of your blade (or router bit or dado set), then close the Kerfmaker's jaws around the mating piece. Now you're ready to cut the shoulders of your joint with perfect precision. Just set your stop with the Kerfmaker in place, make the first shoulder cut, flip the Kerfmaker over, make the second shoulder cut, then cut out the waste in the middle. You'll be amazed at the tight joints you achieve with minimal setup time. Precision machined from solid anodized aluminum.

Features:

  • Allows you to easily cut tight-fitting joints on a table saw, router table, radial arm saw or the Jointmaker Pro
  • Tool is set up using your actual stock, eliminating measurement errors
  • Cuts it right the first time—no time-consuming trial and error
  • Tightness of fit is easily adjustable, corresponding to how tightly the KM-1 fits around your stock
  • Cuts grooves and dados up to 2'' wide

Speed & Precision
I'm copying my review from the TenonMaker. It still applies
To begin. BridgeCity is building generational tools. These will be around for your grandchildren. The fit and finish is unbelievable. There's is not an untouched or unfinished edge on this. Every inch is well crafted and thought through. The learning curve is a little steep because words can't give it enough clarity. Once I saw the video, it clicked. So easy & So speedy you're going to Homer Simpson yourself (D'oh!) You get what you pay for. Do it! you won't regret it.

Bridge City Tools now made in China
I was disappointed to realize that Bridge City tools are now made in China. Bridge City (BC Tools) used to be made in Portland Oregon i.e., made in the USA. I received the KM-1 this morning and find that the action of the slides in not smooth. I have not used it yet but now that BC tools are now made in China, they should be about one quarter of the price as they are now.
