Clean, Flat Dadoes for Less than $100
Sometimes a dado (or groove) is the only joint that will work for a
project. To make this cut you could make repeated passes with an 1/8"-thick
blade, you could use a router and a straight bit or you could use a
dado set on your table saw. We prefer a dado set. Problem is, carbide-stack
dado sets have always been expensive, and many "affordable"
dadoes don't cut a flat-bottomed groove and will tear out the wood,
especially after the steel tips start to dull.
Freud has always made good carbide-tipped dado sets, but they were pricey
($125 to $175). Thankfully, they've now added an 8" carbide-tipped
stack dado that provides a good cut for just $90.
The Italian-made set includes two 12-tooth outer blades, one 1/16"
two-wing chipper and four 1/8" two-wing chippers that produce dadoes
from 1/4" to 13/16" wide. Also included in the set are eight
steel shims to adjust for that always-unpredictable plywood dimension.
While the dado cut by these blades is square and flat, it isn't going
to be used to cut decorative reveals in casework.
If you need an affordable dado that produces reliable results, this
tool fits the bill."
