There is a discussion in the Amazon questions that might help with this.

Many 10" table saws will only take 6" dado stacks because the motor can't handle a larger blade diameter when you have all the blades and chippers on the arbor.

I have both size dado sets, including a Freud 6" carbide set I've used for at least 20 years, and I use this 6" size most of the time. I always use it when I'm doing "stop dado"s, meaning not pushing through the full width of the piece, but picking the piece up at some point. Less material to chisel out (near the stop point) that way. Of course if I needed a really deep dado for some reason, the 8" size offers more there. Freud makes great blades!

An 8 inch set let's you cut 1" deeper grooves than a 6 inch set. For 99.9% of joint work, a 6" is plenty. The other. 01% can be accomplished taking multiple cuts with a regular blade and using a chisel to clean the groove

Yes, up to 13/16" wide. The DWE7491RS says it can handle up to 8" dado blades, though it might tax the motor more than the 6" will. For jobsite saws like yours, 6" dado stacks are usually plenty good. I still have this set from a Ridgid jobsite saw and use it on a Grizzly cabinet saw because I'm waiting for a good deal on the 8" set, and it does everything I need it to do for rabbets and dadoes.

Make sure you find a dado throat plate, or be prepared to make your own (I made my own for the Ridgid saw by using a flush trim router with my original plate to get the size right). You won't be able to use the factory throat plate with a dado stack unless you have a very small stack of about 1/4".
I have the 8 inch set, and can offer some advice. The measurements on the attached guide do not match up to reality, meaning just the outer blades, which are supposed to make a 1/4 inch dado, are just under 1/4 inch, so you will need to shim. And on that subject, metal shims suck. Get some magnetic shims and you won't have a problem with shims not fully seating on the arbor and getting pinched between the blades.

In order to get truly accurate dados, I bought a 5/8 bolt with a washer and nut. I drilled a hole through a small piece of plywood smaller than the dado set. If I need a specific width, I mount the dado set on the 5/8 bolt and tighten the nut. Then I get out the calipers and measure outer tooth to outer tooth, and add shims as necessary to get the exact width I need. It's sort of like this much more expensive system from Woodpeckers:

Been waiting for a dado stack to go on sale since I missed the Oshlun deal. This seems comparable. Thanks!.

I've had this dado set for years now, and it is a real nice set. far better than the Oshlun brand. Great price too.

Dang, I paid $83.38 on Amazon in March. Oh well, I've used it a lot to make cabinets and am very happy with it.

I have this dado set and it works great, only thing I don't like is my saw arbor is not long enough to fit more than 1/2 of blades.

Me too, have had this for probably 10 years now. I chipped a tooth of my own stupidity but still works perfectly.

Would this work with DEWALT DWE7491RS table saw set up?
