I just found a steal of a deal today at a garage sale a brand new Freud 8” dado set for $10.00. The people selling it said that they found it in the garage shelving when they bought their house. I was so excited as I was wanting to purchase one for the longest time. Reading the manual that came with the saw it said that it will only accept a 6” dado. The blade fits as I put it on just haven’t fired it up. Anyone out there using a 8” dado on this saw?
Why would they say only six inch? The only reason that I can think of is if the riving knife lock is in the down position it will hit. But since you don’t use a riving knife then leaving it up in the open position is fine.
What is your thoughts?
