Using 8" blades w/Hatachi 10" table saw?

I have an Hitachi C10RA2 10" table saw. I would like to get a stacked dado set for my saw, but the only ones I find are 8" while the saw uses 10" blades. Can I even mount an 8" stacked dado set and is it safe to use on my C10RA2?

Thanks,
Rob

I imagine that most of us on this forum have a 10" table saw. I would also think that the majority of us use an 8" dado.

Is there anything unusual about your saw that would make you think that an 8" would not work?

Check your manual for size restrictions

Rob,
Some smaller job site and direct drive saws won't fit up with an 8" dado stack.
A 6" is all you'll ever need for most wwing projects as dados are usually only 3/8" or so deep.
The Oshlun brand is awesome from Holbren Tools, and their price is good. Look on E bay also for Oshlun.

bill Welcome to Ya.

The answer to your question will only be as detailed and specific as the question is detailed and specific. Good questions also include a sketch or a photo that illustrates your issue. (:< D)

Nothing unusual. I just don't yet have that much experience with my saw and don't know whether there's some reason that I shouldn't use an 8" blade in a 10" saw. I didn't think there was any such reason, but better safe than sorry.

Thanks for your answer, it tells me what I needed to know.
