I’ve had this for a week. I’m new to woodworking, so I don’t know what to expect. I knew that this Dado set produces little bat wings which I indeed see when examining closely.
But what about grooves? Shown below is slight grooves in a 0.75” wide Dado cut. It’s really not much. I wonder if I positioned the blades differently if the grooves would go away? I didn’t notice any grooves in the box cuts I made.
Please don’t tell me to go buy a $300 Dado. I’m a newbie weekend warrier :-) Now perhaps the $100 Freud or the $130 DeWalt were better choices and I could still return this if so.
Also this thing is really heavy. My Ridgid R4512 seems to spin it ok (takes forever to stop)...hopefully its not too much weight for the arbor or anything. I noticed that the Freud chippers are small instead of full-size steel discs.
