8” dado sets are the norm. You will have to check the length of your arbor (the threaded rod that holds your blade in place) to see if it is long enough to accept that 13/16” width along with a washer and nut. This brand does cut a flat bottom which is good. Be careful when cutting cross grains with less expensive blades as you could get alot of chip out, especially on plywood. I think that for the money, it will give you the opportunity to learn from it and how they work. You will also need to purchase a different insert for your tablesaw because must openings are only about 1/2” to except only up to a 3/8” dado blade width. Good luck and a good buy!
