    Re: Dado anyone?

    To tell you the truth you could probably do a better job with a wobble dado that the results you have posted. Not saying it is your fault even though this is your first dado set, it is the quality of the HF dado that I question.
    "When we build let us think we build forever. Let it not be for present delight nor for present use alone. Let it be such work that our descendants will thank us for, and let us think, as we lay stone upon stone, that a time is to come when these stones will be held sacred because our hands have touched them, and that men will say, as they look upon the labor and wrought substance of them, "See! This our fathers did for us."
    John Ruskin (1819 - 1900)

      Of course it's not my fault. Seriously though, there is no way operator error could account for the bottom of the cut to have such a great amount of arc. It is very plain to see the blades each have a different radius.

      I did consider the fact that the arbor hole for each blade could be too loose which would cause the blades to be mounted at differing radiuses. But, each one does fit pretty snug on the arbor. I also measured the blades with a digital caliper and there is quite a bit of difference in radius between the longest and shortest radius.
