I am waiting for a comparison of this dado and a new Freud SD208 dado.

So I got the Freud a day early and re-dadoed the legs on my table.

First heres the scoop - I think either the Mibro or the Freud blades are back wards.

If you compare the 2, the Freud blades face away from the front of the saw where the Mibro face towards the saw:



The Freud is much quieter and doesn't shake my TS like it's falling apart:



Here are the after cuts once I installed the Freud

This is the Freud cut:


And this is the Mibro cut



While there was a very little bit of chipping with Freud (cross cutting) - it wasn't anywhere near as bad as the Mibro - I was ducking for cover with that one LOL

So, I'm keeping the Freud and selling the Mibro

Kind of weird about the blades though isn't it?

I would not sell the Mibro, I would return them.

It is only the way the logos were placed on the blades. Nothing is backward. Just make sure you put the blades on the saw with the teeth pointing towards you.

But the blades on the Freud say the opposite if I put the blades facing me then "this side out" will be facing in on the Freud.

No?

I have a different model Freud dado set so you will need to check yours carefully. If I remember correctly, on mine, there is a left outside blade and a right outside blade. The teeth are milled to create a splinter free, flat bottom dado, so it is important to mount the outside blades in the correct position and rotation according to the instructions.

AHA - yes, now I see there is a difference!

Thanks @Tom-G or I never would have noticed!

In your picture, the Freud blade on the right goes on first, the one on the left goes on last, with the printing facing the nut. On the Buzz blades, the one on the left goes on first with the one on the right going on last, also with the printing facing the nut.


In woodworking there is always more then one way to accomplish something.

First off, I agree with George, and would not pass a bad set of blades to someone else. :frown2:

Second, The blade's teeth must face so that the sharp or cutting edge is downward as you rotate the blade from back to front. How you place them on the table for photographs has nothing to do with how they are located on the saw arbor. The Freud will have writing on the blades explaining "inside or outside" or "right side or left side" or words to that effect. The chippers' sharp edge must also face you
when looking down at the arbor. If any of the blades or chippers get "reversed" from the proper cutting rotation, it will tear out the wood and NOT give a good result. Follow the Freud instructions, either on the box they came in or on the blades themselves. :smile3:

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)

I'm not all that familiar with dado blades, having only an old Craftsman steel set--which, for what it's worth, actually cuts fairly cleanly. (that being said, I use a router for dadoes).

All that being said, the Mibro blades look like regular TS saw blades that are packaged together with spacers and relabeled for dado use.
