I had been thinking about getting a dado (DADO, DAAADO, daylight come and me want to saw wood) -- sorry. Anyway, the Home Depots here never had anything in but the 7" insert and one day I saw they had an 8". Impulse buy! I purchased the insert and a Freud 8" stacked dado set. I haven't used it yet but will very soon.
FYI...I use the Freud 8" Super Dado set on my TS2424 and it is great! I get smoother cuts and bottoms than with any other dado I've used previously. I think the most important feature is the negative hook angle of this set. It requires a slower feed rate but the results are beautiful.
With the 8" dado remember to limit the depth of cut as these sets can bog down a contractor saw. Using good set ups my TS2424 has never balked at this kind of work.
