I realize the saw is underpowered, that's why I normally use a thin-kerf blade. I'd make several passes if needed, raising the blade each time.
However, will this blade even fit on the arbor. I've heard of such problems with other dado blade/ saw combinations. The saw did come with an insert for dado blades, just hope I can use it.
Even if it doesn't fit, it was a great deal for $75 (I think) and just another reason to get a real table saw. After the planer...
