Lenny – It’s important that the teeth face the proper direction….there’s a steel shoulder that physically supports each tooth. If installed backwards, you’re relying 100% on the binders to hold the carbide. You’ll also find that the teeth of the outside cutters on dado blades have a disproportionate “overhang” on the edges. The outside edge has a bit more overhang that the inside edge. All of the Freud sets are good quality, so you should be fine once installed properly unless there’s some defect.
