Fussy,
1. I have been doing that. I do know that the teeth should never touch. That was the reason for my concern. Short of simply accepting that I had a bad set to begin with, I cannot for the life of me figure out why the first set had a missing tooth.
2. I always do that on anything.
3. I like my old saying, until I read your about the snot on the door knob. I’m going to have to steal that one.
4. It depends on what you need the dado set for. The HF set actually seems to cut easier. I think this is because it has more carbide teeth than the freud set. More teeth I think equals easier cutting. However, the HF set did not by no means leave flat bottoms. If I needed flat bottoms, I was having to run the dado set, then clean it up with a block of wood with sandpaper wrapped around it. This became annoying very quickly. So yes, if you want to have the ability to expect flat bottom dados, I think the Freud set is worth the money.
