Anyone remember a little clip that was sold as a splitter
that went into the curf of a long board being ripped?
It looked like an upside down T with a wing nut or star wheel
on it, It was placed in the curf after the board passed through
the blade and keeping the curf from closing and also supported
both sides of the offcut.
Thanks to anyone that may have a link to someone selling them
Thanks Lee, But Upscale had the right ones, "kerf Keepers".
I wanted to be able to support both sides of a long cutoff and
to keep them from closing up when being cut, I saw plans for
making some out of a couple pieces of flat metal hangers but
if I can find these I'd be a lot happier
There appears to be a set of three Jorgensen "Kerfkeepers" up on ebay
at the moment
If that link doesn't work just go to ebay and search on "kerfkeepers".
Right now they're at about 20 bucks for the three with three days to
One thing to check on if you're buying used and pick them up in person. Make
sure the vertical part that's welded to the bottom piece isn't about to
break off. They're the weakest part of the assembly. The two I have never
reached that point, but I did notice how easily the vertical parts would
bend where they were welded on. Repeated unintentional bending would weaken
that area to the point of separating.
I will keep that in mind if I can find a set to look at first, I
emailed Jorgenson and they
said they had not made them in about 15 years or longer, They also did
not know of
anyone making anything similar. I'm trying to get a set used now, If
not, I will make something
that will work
