Dado blades are used in a variety of saw applications. Commonly tables saws. The manual for your table saw should identify if the saw is capable of using this blade-set Never used dado blades in a saw that is not intended for them as this can result in severe injury to yourself and or damge to the tool. If your are unsure if your saw can accomodate dado blade please post your make and model of saw and someone will try to help you.

How do I set the dado width?


Dado blades come in sets with two side blades and a series of center blades to widen the cut. The no of blades put in the center sets the inital cut, and a series of these cuts can widen the cut farther. The poor mans dado can be done by a series of single saw cuts (kerfs) across a measured distance, moving the fence a small amount each time and then taking a chisel and working the waste out of the slot. For a primer on Dados, see: http://www.newwoodworker.com/hottodado.html

Maybe you could try using the outline of the regular insert to cut a new insert out of a piece of polycarbonate (lexan) or ABS plastic. The clips that hold my dado insert barely hold it in place on mine, and I've seen other saws that use plastic.

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.

If this post was helpful, please vote. Thanks.

Dado blade installation


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...
Be careful! Never push your hand directly toward the rotating saw such that if the workpiece kicks back your momentum will carry your hand into the blade. Begin by raising the blade only a little above the table surface and run a pass with clean wood over it to get the feel of the resistance a stack of dado blades gives. Consider making a groove in two or more passes if you need to raise the blade more than 1/4" to cut it in a single pass. Use metal dado shims to adjust the precise width of cut. Tighten the stack in a balanced way, such that the carbide teeth are not in contact with one another. Stay away from wobble dado sets. Etc. Etc. Etc.
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.

Bosh 4000 table saw , using dado blades.


no good solution for that problem. dado blades vibrate and cause the knob to turn. possibly a clamp on the knob to keep it in place.
