I use one. No complaints. It seems to work fine but I'd guess there are
several other varieties of these that would work as well. I haven't had the
need to try the +.003 (and more) feature as yet. But it doesn't fall out or
cause problems and it does keep the piece against the fence as well, as
advertised. Overall, I'd say a thumbs up would be in order. Mine is the
standard kerf and I use it in one of the white plastic (UHMV ?) inserts.
I like mine.
My only complaint is that occasionally it gets stuck in the kerf and
pulls out of the insert. This is a rare occurrence, so don't get too
worried about it.
My real splitter choice is the Biesemeyer, but they don't make one for
That is my experience. Each time it gets ripped out it wears the holes a
bit, making it that much easier to come out next time.
I made my zcis out of fairly soft luan because it had horrible (ie. no)
grain and no other use. If you used harder wood, yours should last longer,
I find that the type wood has more bearing than the wear and tear. If the
wood tightens back into the kerf and the board is bowed it tends to grab and
lift my splitter out of the hole. The splitter may come out 2 or 4 times in
one day and at other times and or on different wood it may be weeks before
it happens again. Make sure that you fully seat the splitter.
I don't have one of these, so I have to ask. Of what use is this microjig
splitter if it comes out of the wood several times in a week? Is it lodged
in the wood being cut at those times still preventing some measure of
