Yes, as long as you have a 10" craftsman skill saw.

### How do I convert 14cm by 22.5cm into inches

2.54 cm equals 1 inch so this is about 5.51 inch by 8.85 inch.

If this is a screen size, note that sixe given is usually the diagonal.

### Cuts unevenly

This is probably because the offsetting tapered discs in the dado are not lined up to compliment each other and your dado is tipping more to one side than the other - if the blade was tipping to the left and right the same amount, both sides would cut to the same depth and the deepest part would be right in the middle. In an extreme case, if the blade tipped only to the right and not to the left, then the left side would cut the deepest and the bottom of the cut would curve up (shallower) to the right.
The same effect could be due to your arbor not being set exactly at 0 or 90 degrees. The angle indicator on the saw is usually not very accurate. Put a regular blade in, raise it up all of the way, then check for squareness between the table and the side of the blade (using a known good square). Adjust the tilt until you are good, then put the adjustable dado back in.
Good luck!

### How do I install a dado blade? Does the inside large collar need to come off?

Because of the larger hub assembly, the collar will need to be set aside. Be sure to use a dado insert in the table and get a carbide tipped tool if you can afford it. Make shallow cuts or the work piece will grab and be thrown off of the table. Always make a test cut on similar waste to make sure that it has been set correctly. Make or buy a push stick if you don't have one already. It also make copious amounts of waste! Have fun!

### What kind of dado blade can I use on my craftsman 10 inch table saw model no. 137.248100/ with stand

You have a 5/8" diameter arbor. You can use any dado blade that will fit. That said here's a few things to bear in mind.

8" diameter dado stacks are pretty standard for 10" contractor table saws. A dado stack is typically about 13/16" wide at most. It makes sense that the wider your blade is, the more power it takes to cut through the wood.

If you were to use the full width capacity of your Dado stack (13/16") a 10" diameter stack would bog down. A 8" stack has a faster rotation at the cutting edge because of its smaller radius. So, you don't bog down when you're making a wider cut if you use a smaller diameter.

If your machine was really underpowered, you could go down to a 6" stack which would cut your power requirements even more, but limits the depth of cut.

### New dado set understand the shimms and chipper work

The shims are placed between the blades and chippers in a stack. they are used to make very small adjustments to the final dado width... So usually you set up your dado set for a specific width of cut according to your blade chart, then make a test cut... If you need to widen the cut very slightly, add some shims in between the blades as required to get a good fit on whatever material you are joining or putting into the dado etc.

Hope that makes sense!

Yes. normally an eight inch stack dado set is used on a 10 inch saw. You will also have to purchase or fabricate a special throat plate (non-metallic) to accomodate the extra thickness of the dado set.
The number of blades used, and therefore the thickness, varies depending upon the task at hand.
Make sure to use the factory supplied nut and washer to capture and tighten the dado set securely on the arbor.
Be very cautious in the use of dados. Do not raise the set higher than 1/4" or so until you are familiar with the use of a dado set. Try to avoid so-called "wobble" dado sets. They are IMHO more prone to dangerous kickbacks and harder to adjust than a stack dado set with dado shims.

### I bought a Dado blade set dd208 and there are no instructions

I'm hesitant to even answer, not knowing your skill level. But understanding that you will probably have a use for an item you purchased, and use it one way or another, here's a primer...
You may wish to have a look at this website, whose author has obviously given the subject considerable thought: http://www.newwoodworker.com/usngstkddados.html

Finally, be carefull. If you think a single saw blade can tear flesh, imagine what a 3/4" wide swath will do to your hand. Think about your setups. Use test pieces to get them right. Then pay attention while you run your dados. And try to avoid plunge cuts, especially on anything shorter than a couple of feet in length. When you can, use a miter jig in the slot to hold any work you have to pass cross-grain over the dado.
Be careful, feed smoothly, and hold your workpiece firmly against the fence while it passes over the blade.
