$19 is a great price. Even if it’s a cheap set and doesn’t last as long as a more quality set, It is well worth the price to play with and learn from. You might even consider grabbing another set at that price. 8” is the normal size on a dado set. You don’t need the depth that you would normally have with a 10” cutting blade. The 2 shims with the print on them are shims that goes between your cutters and your chippers. The other shims, and yes they are of different thicknesses, are for fine tuning the width of your dado.
