Question Dado Set Recommendation

Good Day Folks!

I am looking for some recommendations on a Dado Set, for my 10" Grizzly Table Saw. I am kinda torn between buying something on the highest end, compared to medium price level. I don't think it will get much use, but would like to have one in the shop for an up coming project.

Thank You in Advance for your suggestions,

-Steven

On the high end I'd recommend FS Tool. I have the set and it is a solid and durable performer. The link is the best price I've seen on it.

This Everlast set is reasonably priced. I haven't used it but I have a few Everlast blades and they're very nice.

You're always better off buying high quality tooling. Better edge life, longer overall life, and much better cut quality. Cheap tooling ends up being more expensive because of rework, to compensate for poor cut quality, material lost to poor cut quality, and you have to by 2 or more to match the durability of premium quality tooling.

Use Freud and Amana. Personally prefer the Amana. Which ever brand you go with take care of it. Find a good sharpener..

I have the Freud SD-308; used it many times with no complaints. I did buy a brass shim set for making fine adjustments to the cut width; some sets may include this.

I have and like the Dewalt DW-7670 set. I get nice flat bottom dados. It comes in a nice case, which keeps carbide teeth apart. Comes with steel shims.
Using the chart for selecting blades and chippers, I get the exact size needed.
I would buy again, without a doubt.
