Re: box/finger joints
For using the dato blades do not modify the metal plate! You just make an insert out of plywood or the scrap material. Put the plate in and run the blades up through the material (put your rip fence over it so the blades will miss the fence do not use your hands). You can make it too thin and use screws to adjust the plate to the thickness of the table if you do not want to sand or have a planer to get it exact.
