In this video, I'll give you a tour of the KM-1, show how to effectively set the kerf using the actual cutters, and show how to use it in many situations on the tablesaw, router, mitersaw, bandsaw, and even the Bridge City JMP Jointmaker Pro. There'll be a number of demonstrations with close-ups to unveil the shroud!
The KM-1 is part of Bridge City's "Essentials". While many commemorative tools are made only once never to be made again, the KM-1 is generally always available.
If there's one thing I could say to convince you of its utility, it would be this:
I've only used my dado stack in two sizes: 1/4" and 1/2"; the shims are still shrink-wrapped(I've always wanted to use the word 'shrouded' in a blog posting; hurrah!)
EDIT: at the time I posted this, Bridge City was regrettably out of the KM-1s. I just got confirmation from Bridge City that they will be back in stock in 6-8 weeks. That puts them as available around the last week of July 2011/early August. Put yourself on the list to get one when they are available. Worth the wait. I waited much longer as I got in on the first run!
