    I remember there's in the past a topic about " Tools you have made " , but I'm not able to find it again .
    So , yesterday I've had this simple idea and just want to
    share with you , builders .
    It's a tool to cut kerk line in a easy way .
    Instead of using bandsaw , I prefer use manual saw , with
    metal saw blade .
    So , here is the tool : a piece of hard wood with a small
    part of used saw blade , as in the pic . The blade is at
    5 mm far from the edge of the piece of wood.

    For use it , I put 2 kerf lining , side by side , between
    2 saw blade , I put the tool on , cut a first time ,
    then I jump the tool in the new cut , cut again and so on .
    The tool maintain in place the kerf , and help to have
    a reguler cut . The 2 saw blade help to go always at the same deep .

    Jean,
    Thanks for sharing. A very good, and non-noisy idea.
    I think you've given me a better idea for my table saw kerfing jig.

    A good reminder that the best tools are often the most simple!
