dado clean out bit (5/5), Nov 17, 2020

By Loring C. Chien (Katy TX US)

I find this great for making half lap joints.

I half lap 2x4 and 1x4 sometimes, I use the table saw to make a series of parallel cuts the width (accurate) and close to the depth of the half lap, very fast. Make the cuts every 1/4 inch or so, does not have to be accurate. Leaves narrow wafers standing vertically. You can go in with a screwdriver and break off the wafers leaving a very rough bottom. Then clean it up with this dado clean out in a router table. Use the bearing to guide against the cuts at the far end and then just freehand over the rest of the width with the bit height in the table setting the exact depth desired.
