Topic tags/keywords: question tablesaw milling modern

I recently purchased this dado set before I saw the arbor diameter and it clicked.
I paid $3 for it. Am I hosed or could a machine shop ream each piece out for me?

What saw has a 3/8” arbor????

I was using the Google-Fu and found nothing about any table saw with a 3/8 arbor. I admitt that I am not a master of google fu, but nothing at all seems weird. What brand is the dado set? But anyway, I am pretty sure a machine shop can fix you up, but it kinda depends on what type of material is there to work with. May be better to cut your losses on this one?

You could have it bored for 5/8”, but it might not be worth it. Ditto Hoosier’s question….brand/model?

a machine shop can resize it for you. we had a TS at work that had a 3/4 arbor so the blades and a dado had to be resized. I don’t remember what the cost was.

Any machine shop can do it, but the cost will probably be more than the dado set is worth.

Our shop could do it, but at $90/hr and a 1/2 hr minimum, well. .

But, as someone already posted, I read where Forrest will fix things like this and for a very reasonable price.

Many saw sharpening services can do that, but I mean it was $3? Like others suggested, is it worth any effort at all?
