You can make your own dovetail splines with our spline-making jig.
1. Mount the spline-maker on the table saw with the mitre gauge set at 90 degrees.
2. Tilt the blade to 14 degrees (or the degree of whatever dovetail bit you are using in your router), straddle the saw blade with the spline-maker saw guide. Run the mitre gauge through the groove to the spline maker and clamp or screw it on.
3. Be careful that you don't push the conveyor so far that you cut into the "Made in the USA" sticker. It's there as a convenient reminder where to stop your cut! Set up the magnetic stop block provided in your kit to index the thickness of the splines, noting that it is 1/16 higher than the conveyor.
4. Then simply run your material through and turn it back and forth to make splines. You'll get so effecient at making splines you'll make dozens or even hundreds in a single session!
