Dado set help

I have a Grizzly G1023RL cabinet saw which I love using. However when setting up my Freud dado set I have trouble with the thin shims getting caught in the arbor threads which makes it hard to get an accurate dado cut. Does anyone have any tips on how to solve this situation?

Clamp all of the shims together, and gently file the internal radius out a bit.

An old trick is to use a bit of rubber cement to adhere a shim to one of the blades when setting up the stack on the arbor. I have a Freud stack dado set, but haven't had the problem you describe with my Ryobi BT3000. My saw has 1/4" and 1/2" spacers next to the arbor bearing that can be removed to allow the dado set to sit more over the non-threaded portion of the arbor.

I've gone out to find myself. If I return before I get back, have me wait for me.

I remember reading when I was looking to buy a table saw that some cabinet saws didn't have long enough arbors to handle a full stack dado set without the set hanging out over the threaded portion of the arbor. It was also pretty common with the contractor style saws.
