I can't help wondering...

.....if I'm the only one who ever sawed through his Incra miter gage fence because he forgot that he had just put in a dado stack.

I put the sacrificial board on the fence BEFORE I install dado or shapper blades.

I don't always use a sacrificial fence. But I always raise the blade to the desired height before setting the fence distance. And I do that with the motor off.

I have a hard time imagining raising a blade from zero with the motor running. I can't imagine that I would ever have that problem.

I don't see any way to accurately set a dado blade's height with the blade turning.

Guys, he's not talking about his RIP fence. He's talking about his miter gauge. It now has a dado sized kerf cut through it instead of a normal kerf.

Yeah. I forgot to reset the miter fence on the sliding miter table and sawed off the plastic end of the fence. Fortunately the ends are replaceable and my stupidity was easily rectified.

I've gone out to find myself. If I return before I get back, have me wait for me.
