do some work with them ...

Then you tell us.
Their reputation is good, but they are expensive. I don't have any, but would consider any that would do a better job than what I have. I don't buy expensive stuff because of the name on the tool.

This one seem like a cool tool:

The answer to your question will only be as detailed and specific as the question is detailed and specific. Good questions also include a sketch or a photo that illustrates your issue. (:< D)

Frank Klause had said years ago they were tools that you can't use. I have a T square of theirs but the stuff they sell now just seems way out there. But the Kerfmaker is worth having.

Friends don't let friends use stamped metal tools sold at clothing stores.

About 25 years ago their tools looked more like woodworking tools and didn't require a loan from the bank.
