The Rockler Indexing Dado Jig is the tool to reach for when you need multiple dados or grooves with equal spacing. It's perfect for shoe shelves, dividers, cubbies, drawer organization systems and more. The jig features a fence that guides the first cut, then rides in that cut to index the next cut. By repeating this process, you can rout as many equally spaced dados or grooves as you need. The two-part fence adjusts to fit dados from 1/8'' to 3/4'' wide. Spacing is adjustable from 1/8'' to 6-9/16'' apart* by loosening the knobs and adjusting the sub-base in the slots.


  • Fence guides initial cut, then rides in the dado to index each subsequent parallel cut
  • Great for routing dados for shelves, cubbies, box dividers, drawer organizers, kerf-bent plywood and more
  • Two-part fence adjusts to fit 1/8'' dado widths, as well as 1/4'' to 3/4'' dado widths
  • No limit on workpiece length, as there is when cutting dados on a table saw with the rip fence
  • 1/2'' thick MDF base with high-pressure laminate surface on both sides provides a stable platform
  • Reinforced plastic baseplate is drilled with hole patterns for mounting most popular routers and features keys on underside to prevent twisting
  • Clear indicators on baseplate and easy-to-read aluminum rules on base simplify setup and ensure precision
  • Spacing of dadoes can be kept even or varied easily from 1/8'' to 6-9/16'' apart*
  • Features easy-to-grip knobs and a hang hole for vertical storage

*Note: Adjustment range will vary depending on your bit diameter.
