Dado set by Whiteside No. 8443DADO $250

Whiteside Machine Co. not too long ago partnered with producer Dimar to supply a line of tablesaw blades, together with this 8-in. dado set. I had excessive hopes for the blades, and so they carried out as anticipated. It is a top-of-the-line set.

The blades have thick plates and thoroughly floor carbide. The configuration is typical, consisting of two 44-tooth outdoors cutter blades, and a set of chippers enabling dado cuts from 14 in. to 1316 in. large in customary fractions.

All of the enamel are floor to a detrimental 6° hook. The set additionally comes with an intensive set of plastic shims, helpfully coloration coded, so you possibly can dial in actual dado widths between these fractions of an inch. This may be very useful when working with laminates and plywood.

The blade yielded very clean cuts in all kinds of materials. I ran it with strong oak and maple, oak and birch veneer plywood, and plastic laminate on MDF. All of the cuts have been very clean with none seen chipping or tearout, even a cross-grain reduce in oak veneer plywood. I wanted to barely enhance my feed strain when slicing with the grain in strong wooden, however this was minor.
