To be fair the seller may have paid around $100 for it, I have seen that brand 8" set listed at over $100, too much compared to other better quality brands but that is life.

There is nothing wrong with a 6" set for the average handyman, it is rare that dados will be cut deeper the the sets capacity, and some saws may be underpowered for the 8" sets.

Sometimes CL can be a gold mine and other times just another place where people think their stuff is worth more than it really is simply because they paid $$ for it. Even at $30 there are better deals out there on better sets. Most everyone here will agree that the 8" Freud set is a far better deal and is better made than the Task brand. Glad the seller didn't take your money! :)

But the wisdom that is from above is first pure, then peaceable, gentle, and easy to be intreated, full of mercy and good fruits, without partiality, and without hypocrisy. James 3:17

At this point, I am leaning toward buying an 8-inch set. The idea of using a Crosscut sled interests me. I actually made a sled for a very poor Delta benchtop 10 inch table saw, direct drive motor, plastic housing... that I had picked up for $30 at a garage sale to get acquainted with using a table saw. It became obvious that it was not going to cut anything approximating accurately. I will want a dado set before too long, but I'm not pressed to buy something less than what I really need.
Thank you all for all of your input! :-) :-)

Whoa, hold up, that isnt the saw youre planning on using a dado stack on, is it? Most benchtop saws arent capable of using a dado, the arbor is usually too short, and the motor likely wouldnt be able to handle it either

Nope. :-) got rid of that a long time ago. I restored a Powermatic 65 this winter. 3 horsepower. :-)

There were two Craftsman saws in between that Delta and the Powermatic. I was happy with the 1952 Craftsman with 1 horsepower, but the Powermatic was a gift, albeit with the elbow grease and learning that I had to supply.
