Credit “isotope” for spotting this.

The DW7670 is currently $136 shipped on Amazon, but at checkout, before you execute the order, the total should come up as $108.79 shipped. You’ll get a message saying ”This Item is Included in Our DEWALT Accessories Promotion. From January 5, 2015, through March 31, 2015, you can get 10% off at checkout when you spend $25 or more on select DEWALT accessories shipped and sold by Amazon.com, or 20% off a purchase of $50 or more. Learn more”.

This set has long been a favorite in the $100 range, but seems to keep climbing like everything else. It utilizes a design somewhat similar to the Forrest Dado Kings….24T outside cutters and 4T inside chippers (there are several to make up the whole stack). In use, it’s proven to be cleaner cutting than other < $100 sets like the Oshlun, Avenger, CMT, Irwin, or Freud 208. It comes with excellent shim stock, and about as nice of a carrying case as I’ve seen.

Amazon’s deals come and go quickly, so if you’ve been scouting for a nice deal on a very nice dado set….don’t sit on the fence too long.

Thanks for the good Heads Up!

I bought a Freud set years ago… have never used it… I guess I should try it some day…
I have always found the Router the easiest way to do it… Just me, I guess…
I will try it… someday…

I just ordered the Oshlun:

Oshlun Stack Dado Set – 8” x 42T x 5/8” Arbor. This 16 piece set includes:

(2) 8” x 42 Tooth Dado Saws
(4) 1/8” x 6 Tooth Chipper
(1) 3/32” x 6 Tooth Chipper
(1) 1/16” x 6 Tooth Chipper
(2 ea) .005”, .010”, .015”, and .020” shims

For 113.15 delivered

Otherwise I’d have ordered the Dewalt.

Good advice nevertheless. Thanks Knotscott

I got the delta branded set new in the box for $72. It’s been a good set, although I do need to get the set sharpened.

Really flat bottoms and clean walls.

While I was shopping I noticed this post! (I’ve not even bought the saw yet). So I checked it out, AND the discount it even greater! My net was $87.03 with free shipping (plus tax for NY) WOW. This did not show until almost the end of the cart process (but before final).

I ordered mine a couple days ago and noticed the same thing. I had to look twice to make sure I was ordering what I thought I was ordering.
