Buy the DeWalt for $113.Can’t go wrong for that.
Seems like a nice set…I’ll review after I try it.

AFAIK, Avenger and Oshlun are associated labels. They make what I’d call decent quality Chinese value blades. Probably not on par with your Ridge Carbide or other premium brands like Forrest, Infinity, or the Freud SD508, but the Oshlun blades I’ve tried have been surprisingly good performers that are well made. The dado blade design is based on the Systematic 42T stacked dado set, which is a pretty solid set. There arent’ a lot of decent stacks in the $70 range, but I’d hazard a guess that this one is at least worth the asking price. The Delta/DeWalt set goes in the $100 range, and is pretty slick.

Yeah, I heard the DeWalt stacked set is a fair performer.
I have a Freud set now, that was dropped and broke teeth, hurt my feelings, but it was giving to me used and I’ve never had to purchase a set new.
I thought about going 1st class with a Ridge or Forrest set, but big $deniro$, and I don’t use it THAT often, although I would if I had the “Dial Dado Freud set”, seems a nice convienence but pricy too.

I don’t know if this set is any good but the price is low

I have the DeWalt set $113 in my SHOPPING CART at Amazon, I am going to click buy soon I think…unless I read a better review, the DeWalt review was quite impressive.
For $113 I would hope it performs like the reviews state.

I’m not sure either. I decided to stick with the Freud dado set, which is an excellent performer.

Must be “good enough”. The Rockler link now says “Sold Out”.

Well, I managed to get one before they were sold out, so I’m hoping it was a good buy.

Has to be better than the 40 year old Sears Craftsman dado I’ve been using. Even for something I use so little, it hurts everytime I cut something with it. :-)

I’d use a Dado more if I had a dedicated saw for it. It’s a pain in the ass changing blades. I go for the Router Table.
I don’t pull my clearance plate a lot, I use the same blade in my TS for most ALL cuts. If you change the blade in your TS every time you rip and/or crosscut a board your are (as far as I’m concerned), simply a liar (.)

Why don’t you get new teeth put on your Freud dado set? the sharpening co. I use will put on new carbide teeth for almost any blade for €5 a tooth.

You did good. The dewalt/delta set is a great value.
I grabbed it a while back when it was around $85.
