A great dado set.. A great dado set.. No-picture-s Click the pictures to enlarge them

Since I purchased my rigid tablesaw I have been really trying to advance my knowledge of exactly what a TS can do and I figured joinery techniques was a good a place as any..

In in the middle of the design phase of creating mitre saw station and I think the doors will be mortise and tennon joinery anyway I have been practicing with this set..

The Pros:
Really like the quality of the blades,chippers and spacers..

I like how easy it is for a beginner like me to align everything in the stack.

It makes a super dado and with the help of a ZCI avoids all tear out and gives a very flat dado .

It all comes in a heavy duty plastic carry case that sorts the blades from everything else

The Cons:
At $100 it’s kind of exspensive but you get what you pay for

The spacers are stamped with the thickness dimensions and there kinda hard to see ..

Yep, good tool. I have the same one and agree about the spacer markings, so I just wrote the numbers on with big black marksalot.

I have the 6” one myself, I find it does the job well for me and doesn’t bog out my R4512. I have used the 8” version and a couple other different Freud models at work and they are all great. One particular set we use (the higher end black model) is set up for 1/4” all the time and has run literally thousands of feet of maple for drawer bottom dados and still cuts clean without much effort.

I have the Freud “super dado” and agree that Freud seems to have the details down pat across their product line. I always hated dado sets that left “bat ears” from the outside blades being slightly larger diameter, the Freud’s seem to have that taken care of. Now if someone would make the summing easier. I hate how the shims drop into the arbor threads and get chewed up.

I have a similar set, and was happy with it for plywood dados and grooves. The only limitation I found is the 2 tooth chippers would cause chipout in hardwood joinery. Especially when milling the shoulders of tenons, I would get some chipout.

I ended up getting an infinity dadonator and it works better for hardwood joinery. It has a more neutral hook angle, so it cuts a little slower than the Freud (and costs more than twice as much). I still like the Freud too.
