Was there tear out along the whole dado cut or just tear out at the end of cut or blow out of wood at end of cut.

On each of the dados is to be made, I have cut each side of the dado with a 80 tooth blade, on all the dados to be made. Then change to the dado blade and cut out the remainder waste with a dado blade. One method. I have used painters tape, but didn’t always keep from tear out. Also feeding slower does help.
