Freud 8" Stacked Dado Set for All Saws (SD208S)

Also available at Walmart. By far the lowest price this has gone according to 3xcamel. I was also able to clip a 5% coupon on the item page for a pre-tax total of 67.23. Not sure if this is targeted or not. (might be to match Walmart store pickup).

The whole reason why I got my DeWalt table saw was for a dado stack.. been waiting for a sale like this to come around, nice find!

fyi Freud is 'Diablo' blades actual company for those wondering about Freud.. excellent Italian quality. Another fyi is I'd either buy or DIY your own zero clearance plate for this to minimize tearout.

Edit:

I wonder how it compares to Oshlun, I've been eye'ing this set for a very long time. I realize it's not on sale right this second, but it seems to have a different stack.. wondering if someone can explain without brand bias the difference.

https://smile.amazon.com/Oshlun-S...2Bset&th=1

Edit:

This is not their Pro line nor is it the same quality as Diablo stacks sold at Home Depot. Currently doing research to see how this stacks up (jajaja).. I think it's going to be very similar to other popular stacks.

Final Edit:

Meh.. If you can use Google Express 20% off to buy the Oshlun 8" from Walmart, it comes out to $74 which gets you a lot nicer stack with significantly more teeth (a lot better cut, less chance of chipout) for just a little more. I'm cancelling my order, but still good for those that cant get the 20% discount on Google Express.

Thanks bought one. I had the 6" set in my wish list but this is even cheaper.

I'm a little on the fence myself. Let us know what you find.

This set is pretty well reviewed, and several people say they've used it in the same Ridgid saw I have, so I might end up biting anyway. $70-ish after tax is a pretty good deal for a quality dado stack.

I went with the Dewalt set because of the 4-tip chippers vs 2-tip ones here. I read that 4 tip make cleaner cuts and while I haven't tried this set, my Dewalt set makes extremely smooth and square cuts. It is like $130 but is a great set.

Edit: Dewalt also has 24T main blades vs 12T on this one.

Is there a difference between the Amazon stack and the one sold on Home Depot (other than paint scheme): https://www.homedepot.com/p/Diabl.../100086071

Model numbers are close.

EDIT: SD208S has max RPM at 7K. SD208H has max RPM at 9K.

I use this on a Delta 36-725 and it works flawlessly. You don't even have to sand afterwards due to how smooth the cut is. Just cut slow and be mindful of the extra work your motor has to do spinning this heavy contraption versus a normal single blade. As others have mentioned, do not use this without a dado throat plate which can be bought or easily made with scrap plywood in 10 minutes via youtube tutorials.

The Oshlun is much nicer in my opinion

This is misleading... Not ALL saws accept Dado.

The Dewalt DWE7480 does not, per Dewalt.

I got this for box joints: https://www.amazon.com/Freud-20T-...reversible

It works well but only has two width options (which is sufficient for my box joints).

That being said, I likely would have bought the set on sale here had it been a deal when I was in the market for dado blades.

My saw only recommend to use 6 inch dado set. I think most of the portable table saws do the same.

True for my Crapsman saw as well. Embarrassment
