I purchased the dado blade set that Pintodeluxe recently reviewed. It does not come with a carrying case, so I put one together quick! It was a fun project.

5/8” threaded rod, some nuts and baltic birch. I also used some sort of little screw-in insert that I salvaged from something or other. This is for holding the dado shims. I don’t like having them on the same stack as the blades. They can be hard to get off the threaded rod.

I like the idea of storing the shims separately. Mine are usually floating around in a ziplock bag somewhere. Thoughtful design.

Your right about storing the shims on the same stack as the dados. Mine have some oil on them and it hard to get them off the 5/8” nut.
Very well planed project.

I have to admit, I have not used it yet. I’m in between the need for cutting dados right now! But I will soon, and will post how it cuts!
