I’m sure most of you get emails from Rockler, but in case you missed it….

I see they have the Oshlun 6 inch dado set on sale for $49.99. I bought one of these a while back and have been extremely pleased with it. It has received good reviews from others as well, and is a good bargain at this price.

Thanks for the post. What is the difference between the 6” and the 8”? Is one more powerful or better suited to particular types of jobs or saws? Thanks!

An 8” dado will cut deeper, of course, but it also spins a little faster at the teeth. possibly giving a cleaner cut. The downside is that it is heavier and requires more energy to spin than the 6”. So for less powerful saws, and folks who don’t need tremendous depth, a 6” is a good choice. And I could not ask for a cleaner cut than this set delivers.

WOW! I really wish that I had $50 to spare right now! But, between the stupid wedding this October and buying a stupid house within the next couple of months, I’m going to have to stick with the stupid dado set that I have:-(

FYI – This one is listed for sale by Amazon at $54.47 with free shipping as well. You just have to look for the “More Buying Sources” on the right side of the page. Useful for those of us with Prime memberships
