Yes, I watched the video. In the video it took over five minutes to extend the six kerfs. It takes less time than that to cut out the corners of the socket using chisels with no sawing, no kerfs at all. And traditional methods are even faster.

In this case, Warren, accuracy and ease of clearing waste trumps ultimate speed. After all, we are not as proficient as you. And we have 5 minutes to spare.

Thank you for taking the time to make the video. That is some nice work, and some very nice work all around as far as the table goes. I even recognize some of my work in it also. The springs around the threaded shafts seem to be working out very nicely. I love the clamp on the moxon it sure keeps things from moving during marking. It kind of takes the whole package to to get the dovetail to come out like that, not including a lot and I mean a lot of cutting dovetails. 
Now you have me thinking about making a kerfing chisel.

Anyway thanks again.

It's fascinating to me to see the different ways that woodworkers solve the same problem. A while back I made a diminutive gents saw that I use for small DT's . After that I took a piece of the leftover 1095 and made a kerf cutter. It takes about 5 seconds to wack it down with my mallet.
