Topic tags/keywords: dado dado set custom dado question tablesaw milling

Hello!

I’m looking for recommendations for a tricky dado situation.

I need:
10” diameter set
2” wide set
5/8” or 1” bore will work for me (I will be reboring them to +1”)

Ideally I would buy this set from a manufacture who can sell me extra chippers to get the set up to 2”. I’ve found a couple companies out there that sell extra 1/8” chippers but since I’m having all of these blades re-bored I’d prefer to use 1/4” chippers.

Anyone have any recs on this?

Thanks!

I think you ought to call Forrest and see if they can help you out, alternatively Ridge Carbide might have a solution.

Have you tried calling Amana directly?

The catalog claims to offer all sizes of chippers as an accessory.

The middle 2 numbers are width. For 10” dado with 1” arbor; try Amana PN 651410-1
Will be special order from local tooling shop.

Forest also sells replacement/extra DadoKing chippers as special order. Just have to call mfg.

Never seen 2” wide, but have seen a 1.5” wide stack on 12/14” saw with 7.5HP motor.
Darn thing sounded like airplane winding up. Be safe!

Update: Here is random online source offering the Amana chippers:

Best Luck.

I’m assuming you have a saw that has an arbor long enough for a 2” dado stack? I know obvious question but i never know who is asking.

Arbor is 5 inches long (3” not threaded + 2” threaded)...

Ballew will make a 3/4 dado on a thick plate…if it will turn, they will make it…they offered this as an option for a stacked dado.

what kind of saw? I’m just curious. I have a Tannewitz that can take 4” wide dado blades due to a mechanism that slides the left extension out.

If you have 3 inches of non threaded arbor your going to need a 3 inch spacer so you can clamp down on your new dado stack when you tighten the nut.

Here’s a question:

Some options I’m drawing up will use 1/8” chippers (2 teeth) and some will use 1/4” chippers (2 teeth).

Which option do yall think will more efficiently use the saw’s power? My logic is that using 1/4” chippers will create less drag on the work piece.

Thoughts?

The 1/4” chippers I’ve seen are still on 1/8” blanks, requiring washers between the blades. Such a setup will have a lot less weight (seems like it anyway) so start up and slow down will be a little faster (intuitively). But you’re removing the same amount of wood so I doubt there’s any difference in the actual cutting.
