Cut my first dadoes tonight with a real dado blade set. Several years ago, pre Topamax, I bought a wobble blade. It needed an insert so I took my saw model to Sears. They had to order one. It didn’t fit. I figured I’d have to make one. I got busy with other things and never got back to it.
Tonight I needed to make some serious dadoes 3/4” wide. I had some salvaged 1/4” hardboard. I roughed out an insert and friction fit it on the ends to hold it securely in place.
I probably would have figured it all out, but thanks to LJ, I abandon the wobble blade! I have a set of real Dadoes. After all the info I this site, everything went off without a hitch just like I knew what I was doing ;-))
