I recall one incident at a workplace long ago…that there was a kickback while someone did a 3/8” by 1” dado in hardwood; looking at the blade set, all the chippers were lined up straight across. Whether this person failed to stagger them, or the set simply wasn’t fastened tight enough, nobody knows. With the 2 ancient Unisaws this shop owned, most users in that shop were in the habit of tightening the arbor-nut finger tight, expecting the momentum of start-up to finish the tightening job. With single blades, sure enough you’d need a wrench to loosen them afterwards, but maybe it was not a good idea to tighten that way on a stack set.
