Hey AJ
I have a brand new dado set, 8” x 13/16. never used, I’ll take $45 for it. I bought it at Home Depot and have never used it – even has a wooden box. I would gladly trade it for a table saw fence also, instead of money… What do you think?

Jim is offering heck of a deal!

I spent about $100.00 on my dado set and had buyer’s remorse until I used it for the first time. It was/is worth every penny and more!

AJ I bought the forrest dado set and have to tell you. I think it was worth every penny I spent on it. I had a cheap dado set around $50 and I couldnt get a true fit no matter what I did. Now I get a tight fit no matter what size i cut. Expensive but worth it to me and the cuts I have to make. You will only want to upgrade in the futer so if you can buy what you will keep for a lifetime.

Spend over 60 bucks.
Get a freud 8” dado set for around 100. You will not regret it.
