My guess would be those blades are created as close to 1/4” as possible under the Metric system (6mm is .14 less than 1/4”).

I’ve thought some more on this, and I have an idea. Suppose the box joint set always cut a narrow kerf, but my old table saw was misaligned enough to cause it to cut a wider kerf – to the point where it evened out to 1/4”? I know I tuned up my old table saw at one point, but I don’t remember if it was before or after I cut the last box joints.

Would it be possible for a table saw to be misaligned enough to cut a kerf wider by .014”, and not be noticeable otherwise?
