You are absolutely correct. I was trying to be lazy and you called me on it.


Dadonator is not recommended for Sawstop.
As for the measuring gauge…. That is intended for suckers with big pockets but small brains.
Take your dado stack and make many slots in a piece of wood, all with different combinations. Write down the chippers and inserts you used for each slot and you have even better gauge.

I hear you on that one. Only concern I would have is that I want to use the safety, no matter how minor that cut could be. Alos, if I ever had to make a warranty claim when using it I would want to make sure I was in accordance with their direction….regardless of the fact that I want to buy that set…REALLY REALLLY BAD.

For those of you using the DeWalt and Forrest sets…how many times have you had to perform multiple cuts to get the exact size you needed? My big ticket with the Dadonator is their Dado Measuring Gauge…that thing looks AWESOME.

You could run your saw in bypass while using the dado stack if you don t want to risk an issue. I ve had a dadonator for a while, and recently upgraded to a SawStop. I haven t had occasion to use the dado stack yet, but would probably run in bypass after seeing what the Tech Service folks told you. I certainly don t plan on replacing the dado stack. I wouldn t consider a dado cut high risk.
