Say Goodbye To Tedious Trial and Error Dado Setups.

The only way to describe dado setups is an "on again, off again affair." Mount the blades and chippers in your table saw, add some shims to guestimate the desired width, tighten the arbor nut, make a test cut, repeat. And repeat again. Oh yeah, try not to drop anything into the deep pile of dust inside your saw! Is it any wonder dado setups are dreaded?

Dado Setup Solution, Woodpeckers New DSF Paired With Gap Gauge.

The Dado Setup Fixture (DSF) enables woodworkers to find the perfect dado stack combination before installing it in the table saw. When using the DSF along with the Woodpeckers clever Gap Gauge measuring device; dado setups are a "can't miss" operation.

First, you need to determine the physical thickness of the material, like plywood, that you want to fit into the dado. The Gap Gauge is a perfect solution to accurately determine the correct width. 

Second, use the Gap Gauge along with the DSF to match your setup. The beauty of the DSF is that it mimics the mounting of your dado set in the table saw. But using the DSF is faster and easier because it’s on your bench top or in a vise. And the Gap Gauge virtually eliminates the need for trial and error test cuts.

Simple Tools Yield Great Results.

The Dado Setup Fixture has a 5/8" bronze arbor and a threaded knob that tightens the dado stack configuration just as your saw’s arbor nut would. The arbor can accommodate dados up to 15/16" thick.

Securing the base of the DSF is easy and enables you to torque the knob to compress the dado stack, replicating the internal workings of your table saw. Shoulders milled on the long edges make for easy vice installation. The base also has two, 3/8" holes with matching locating pins.

Just use the DSF base as a drill guide to perfectly space the holes on your bench or other work surface. The DSF even comes with optional bushings that perfectly match the hole pattern of Festool’s Multi-Function Table (MFT).

Gap Gauge Has A Range Of Uses.

The genius of the Gap Gauge is that by simply gauging either the thickness of material or inside dimension of a joint, the opposite end of the Gap Gauge is perfectly set to the required size for the other mating half of the joint.

As examples, you can gauge an existing dado for a precision fit, or pare a tenon to perfection by measuring a mortise using the fingered side of the tool. Then, use the solid edge to gauge your tenon. Woodpeckers also offers the Gap Gauge Mini for taking measurements of small gaps ranging from 1/8" to 1-1/8".
