I'm just continually amazed at your creative know how with the lazer cutter DuckyFreud Dial-a-Width Dado box insert
Boys and Girls,
I have just reviewed my Freud 8" Dial-a-Width Dado set after getting totally cheesed of with the supplied plastic insert(s)
and replacing it with laminated MDF layered spacers. This blog explains what transgressed from my frustration.
The plastic form included, was made up of 1mm thin brittle plastic
designed to permit separation and stacking of the dado set so as not to compromise the integrity of the TCT teeth. The cheap plastic managed to disintegrate within a few weeks of use and I was aggravated by the chomping of the TCT blades' teeth.
Shuffled off to SketchUp and based on the profile of the chipper blades,
and plastic form I came up with this design,
and a peek-a-boo.
Note the provision for that goose neck spanner.
As the blades were 1/8" thick I made the separators out of 3mm MDF with 16mm dia. "spindle" retainers/spacers with an overall 150mm blade separators,
The parts were ready for glue up straight off the laser,
The insert finished,
Ready to be used with the Woodpecker Dado setup jig (more on this later).
And for all those people with a left and a right hand , here is a video of how it works to juggle in your third.
