The instructions in the manual are not clear imho. Page 35 says I need to buy dado throat plate. OK, I understand so far. Then…..”This saw is designed for 5/8 in dado cuts. With theprchase of the optional dado throat plate, it can be used with a 6 in. stack dado (up to width of 3/4 in) do not use an adjutable dado or molding cutters on this saw.”
So….am I correct in assuming that I am not able to cut dado using wobble method. If I can, then how would I do it?
I would prefer using a 6” stacked blade, but do not understand why manual says I can use one up to width of 3/4 in. when the saw is designed for 5/8 ” dado cuts? Isn’t 5/8” skinnier than 3/4”?
I am new to this. Any help would be appreciated, as I want to build a better bookshelf that my husband who sux at woodworking will not make fun of this time around. I am just at the end of a 3 year re-model that has taken far too long and dadgummit I want to cut a dado.
Can anyone tell me exactly what size and brand dado you have used with this table saw successfully?
Many thanks in advance,
