Thanks for this service.
Any recommendations on which dado blades to buy and whioch to avoid
I haven’t done any tool tests on dadoes, but have owned and used Freud, CMT and Amana. The dado head I was using here is from Infinity http://amzn.to/2n76p0D
Thanks much always can learn something
Are there any gotcha’s when doing “groves” … i.e.: with the grain
Cutting grooves with the grain is nearly identical to dadoes across the grain. No big set up or handling change.
can I still log in?
Great job on the video and audio and the connections.
Thanks. Took a while to get here, but I’m really happy with the improvement.
how did you cut the cutout in the sacrificial board?
Lower the dado head. Position the rip fence to it’s close to the dado, but the dado won’t cut into it. Clamp the sacrificial fence to the rip fence. Turn on the saw and slowly raise the dado head.
Newbie here, got my ears open so I can learn a lot.
I have seen you use 2-3 different ear plug devices for hearing protection. Which is the one you think is the best. I already have hearing troouble
I’ve been using ISOTunes Pro for quite a while now http://amzn.to/2othY2q I REALLY like them a lot.
Dado blade safety
Let’s do this
Sorry, I am late.
Looking forward to learning!
Side note: Another down side to the wobble head is that can be hard on the arbor bearings
Looking forward to your live event!
Is there a reason the shims go between the last chipper and the rim blade? when using multiple shims should they be spread out?
I like them between the last chipper and rim so they’re easy to get to if I have to swap them again.
I like live class videos
would it be easier to gauge if the plywood was sitting on the shim?
hairy I have a set of cmt precision dado set ,it came with plastic shims also. how critical is it to uses these shims. I also have a saw stop saw , and do I need to have a different insert for each dado set such as 1/2 , 5/8 , and so .
You only need to use the shims if you’re building the dado head out to a size that you can’t hit with the rim blades and chippers. You don’t need a separate insert for each size dado.
my dado set only has 3 1/8″ chippers with only 2 teeth each and no 1/16″ chipper. comes with 1/16″ metal shims plus the actual micro shims.
ps also an Eagle Scout.
That’s very cool.
Yeah, some dado heads don’t have the full set of chippers like the one I showed tonight.
I enjoy live classes
I recently purchased my first dado blade – a nice Freud. But my chipper blade is different design than yours – a larger piece with a large chipper on either end, rather than a series of smaller chippers like those sitting on your table now. What is advantage of one design vs the other?
What size of dado blades should one get? 8″, 6″ (do they make a 10″?)
They do make 10″ dadoes, but they’re for really large industrial equipment. I recommend a 6″ dado for benchtop table saws with universal motors. If your saw has an induction motor you should be fine with an 8″.
George, would you ever consider an apprenticeship for a guy that wants to learn in Wisconsin?
My kids work for me as needed. Outside of that, I don’t have a spot for any other employees or apprentices.
Can’t connect through YouTube. Any suggestions?
Why is there 6″ and 8″ dado sets?
I recommend a 6″ dado for benchtop table saws with universal motors. If your saw has an induction motor you should be fine with an 8″.
first time to join
Looking forward to this

Hello from Katy.
Let’s get started
Going to skip watching “This Is Us” so I can learn!
Watching from Spirit Lake, ID. The leaves are only now really beginning to turn.
Todd Coburn from Houston, TX is watching!
Hello from Waconia Minnesota! Looking forward to the session!
have you had any trouble using stacked dado blade on the Saw stop? mine was tripping the overload when trying to start the saw with a stacked dado blade.
I know Saw stop does not recommend certain stackable because of the total mass, and the brake may have trouble stopping it. I feel pretty safe using a Dado blade, so i wasn’t concerned with that.
Great Answer, in fact, my saw is also 220V, I had contacted Saw Stop and they said the same thing, “check for voltage drop to the saw”. My saw has a 10 foot #10 gauge cord. The outlet is only about 15 feet of #12 from the main panel in my house. I am an electrician and checked all connections in the circuit and measured voltage drop in several places from the saw to the main panel. The biggest voltage drop was at the main panel. I called the power company and they sent a crew out and up sized my overhead drop to my house. I also checked all connections in the meter socket while they had it de-energized. The saw still tripped the over load with my Freud blade with 4 legged chippers, when i am near 3/4″ thick. I still measured a healthy voltage drop at my main panel. Maybe I live too far out in the sticks! was just wondering if you had seen the same issue.
That’s weird. Really sounds like there’s not enough current. I don’t know what else to point toward.
A nice light red wine with turkey this Thanksgiving or just the traditional white meat white wine?
I am a new member and am looking forward to the event.
Hi from Springfield, Nebraska
I am here from Rural Colombia
I would like to receive the live video event for tonight at 8:00 P.M.
Looking forward to discussion
Will enjoy class
Will enjoy applying them to my shop
Can George also give some commentary on using hand tools to do these jobs?
A router plane is a must for hand cut dadoes. Check out this four part video series. https://www.wwgoa.com/video/cut-a-dado-using-hand-tools-part-1-of-4-004336/
Looking forward to the seminar
Looking forward to the event!
Looking forward to it.
Looking forward to learning new methods
looking forward to trhis
I can’t assist. Can you record it so I can view it later?
Sign me up for the event on cutting perfect dadoes and rabbets using a table saw.
What is your opinion of stacked cutters versus “wobble” adjustable cutters? Is there a time when one is better than the other?
A stacked cutter is definitely a better investment. Much better cut quality. I recommend staying away from wobble heads.
I’m a newbie and have a lot of basics to learn.
Since you are going to be working with the table saw, I do have a general question about my saw. I have a Powermatic 64B contractors saw. I’ve been thinking about purchasing an Incra Table saw fence. Are they worth the money? By the way George, I too am an Eagle Scout, 1962 and also a 32nd degree Mason.
I have an Indra fence and I love it!
Very cool on the Eagle and 32cnd Degree. Sorry, but I haven’t worked with the Incra fence. But Incra makes great products. I’ve got their miter gauge for my table saw, and love it.
