Daddo tool

Over here in Australia, i have often read in magazines, where a tool called a daddo is used with wood. It looks like a router blade, is this right. Is there another name for this tool.

Peter...
If it's intended for use with a router, then it's commonly called a "straight router bit".
If it's intended for use with a table or radial arm saw, then it's commonly called a "dado blade" or "dado blade set" (depending on type).

Perhaps you mean "dado" ?

No. Saws use blades. Routers use bits.

Perhaps if you gave some more information about what this tool *does*...

Perhaps you mean the old fashioned hand router?

It could (perhaps?) be used for dados as well. But I don't see how to guide it precisely.
Here's an old one (patent in 1884) on eBay:
