OK, Yet another and has to be the absolute simplest to make.
It's simply a "stick" and "a screw".
Brought to you by Brian who used to post here.
I will say that it may not work as well for large stock but maybe it will!
BTW I am not sure why he made a cut out, it seems to serve no purpose.
For that matter, the entire wood block serves no purpose. The business
part is the screw which is simply duplicating the width of the kerf. I
know for a fact that most of my full kerf blades are dead-nuts-on 1/8",
so you could probably just use one of those brass set-up blocks or cut a
scrap to 1/8".
That is, if you always want the same "tight" fit.
Having the block give you adjustability for fit tightness and other

Yes, I thought that too but it is nice to have something a bit larger to
grab. ;~) and for me if not obvious how to place it I might put it on
the wrong edge when flipping. Maybe that is what the cut out is for, to
remind you which surface is which.
Perhaps Brian's a "waste not, want not" kinda guy. ;) Then again
perhaps he did it to quickly orient the screw end down for set up.
In any event, it's a very simple solution and, like most of his videos,
educational and entertaining.
Yeah I caught that, I thought it odd that he said that he created a
reference spot as the spot was already there. I guess I should be
thinking he created a visual reference to locate the reference spot.
Tomatoes, mate'rs. LOL
The cut out reduces the amount of contact surface area, which has the poten
tial to reduce error. Errors in the few thou of an inch are enough to infl

Unfortunately these type jigs, and I have the BridgeCity KerfMaker,
don't allow for inconsistencies in thickness of the material that will
fit onto the dado. And plywood typically varies in thickness along any
given edge enough to be more than a few thou of an inch.
And really that is not a fault of the jigs so much as the quality of the
material that fits into the dado.
You are welcome buttttttt......
if you want a simpler one and your set up sample can be easily set on
the saw table top, this one is as easy as it gets. It does involve
repeatedly using your set up sample with each new dado but it does not
get much simpler than a small piece of wood with a screw in the end of it.
