I received an email from Peachtree , and they have this 8” Fulton stackable dado set on sale for $55.
I can’t find any reviews on it , and it is not sold elsewhere to my knowledge.
I tried to find more info about it on their site , and it isn’t even listed with their other dado sets !
WTH ??
Anyone here own one ?

If they are carbide teeth then I may get a set myself.

I just picked up a 8” 12 tooth CMT stacked dado set recently from Lowes for about the same price.
I havent had a chance to try it out yet but i from what reviews i have seen it is a decent low cost or beginner dado set. plus i dont have to pay shipping and if i dont like it i can take it back.

I know nothing about the Fulton set, but as long as there are viable proven alternatives near the price range, I wouldn’t want to be the guinea pig for an unknown….$55 is more than pocket change for most of us, and there’s no need to risk it. Rockler currently has the Avenger 42T set on sale for $60, which is the same as the Oshlun, which is a pretty well regarded value set. Lowes also has the CMT set that was mentioned on sale, and that’s nearly identical to the very well regarded Freud 208 set. I’d go with one of those.

I already have a POS 6” Delta set that I use for rough work , and a very nice 6” Forrest set up.
I was wondering if anyone has or had used one of these from Fulton.

The Forrest salesrep at the woodworking show told me that I would probably never cut a dado deep enough to warrant buying the 8” set…so far , he was correct : )
