I've used one for two years, and have cut a LOT of dados in wood,
plywood, and MDF. Still works fine. Not as clean a cut as the better
models, but perfectly adequate. How many people look at the bottom of
a dado, anyway. <g>
I'm saving up for the new Freud dado blade--it's dial-adjustable in
.004" increments. $270.00 is kinda steep but it sounds like a
winner--no splintering, flat bottom cuts in all materials. I'm sold on
(most) Freud blades after using their Glue Line rip blade--resawed
some 3" walnut gunstocks with it, unbelievable!
I use a Jet contractor's saw with an 8" Signature dado set that I got
from Lowe's. It does a pretty good job, but I would buy the Freud set
from Amazon if I were going to buy it today. The saw seems to handle
the 8" set with no problems.
