Ran into a cut the other night that my 7" dado wouldn't quite make--takes
multiple passes making it inconvenient to do on the router table and need
to do too many of them to be willing to finish by hand if there's an
alternative. Figured it was time for an 8" dado.
The only one I could find in stock on a Sunday was the Sears Excalibur
Elite, which has a hub on it that is so large that it won't cut quite as
deep as the 7" that it would be replacing--not quite 1-1/2" for either, but
the Sears won't bottom the cut in the fence made by the 7", that was
limited by the motor diameter. The SD608 looks like it also has a large
hub, but not quite so large as the Excalibur Elite, but I can't find any
information on the max depth of cut anywhere and was hoping that someone
who has one could tell me this.
If not then it's off to Tools Plus tomorrow to eyeball one--I'd really
rather save the drive if I could.
