I got an email from Grizzly, advertising a sale price on the Oldham 10 inch dado set. At 89.99 (about $40 off), might be worth trying. I don’t have a dado set now, used to have one on a radial arm saw. Anyone have experience with this brand?

Thanks

Sorry, just dropped in while reading mail, didn’t scan through LJ. By the way, you ever eat at Stubbs, downtown?

I can’t recall ever seeing a 10” dado set. All sixes and eights in my experience. Oldham is a fine old name.

In pondering the value of the ten, I would think finer cuts could be had. Would the angle of entry of the tooth be different if the rake is the same on the Oldham as is typical on smaller heads?

Kindly,

Lee

You had better have a big old honkin’ saw to power a 10”. That puppy will eat horsepower.

I can’t think of any reason I would need a dado cut that deep – what, 4 inches or more? Maybe a bridle joint? Anyway, exposing that much toothy steel would scare the heck out of me. So, for normal 1/2 inch dadoes, the only advantage might be momentum, smoother cut?

Randy, not for too many years. God, I miss Texas barbeque.

Lee… i know this is an old post but ran across it. Ten inch dado sets are alive and well…... as well as 12 inch.

I mostly use a ten because i had to have one inch arbor capability.

I also have an 8 inch oldham which is very good,(the ten inch is an amanit)
