I have the craftsman molding set (made by Corob), which is similar in use to what you have. I used the reed/bead cutters to cut beads to form a tread/grip on steps for a bunk bed I made for my Grandson. I like using it much better than a router. Less mess, fast set up, quieter. I recommend zero clearance throat plate though.

I have the single cutter Craftsman set. I needed to make a 36 x 48 picture frame and used them in my evil machine at the time. The set has been gathering dust since the mid 1970s due to the lack of courage to use them. If I still have the set I'll recycle them in pieces so that they can't be used.

That set looks like it only has two heads. If so I will bet it is very noisy and shaky.


My Craftsman is bad enough and it has 3 heads. But it does do a good job.

When using them, you take skim cuts of about 1/8" at a pass (like a router). Use feather boards to hold your material down to the table AND also against your fence. Do not use in plywood, or cross grain (as a dado) only with the grain down the length of a board, and you will get along just fine.

Well I am not going to use this :) They are more of a keepsake, one of only a few things I got that belongs to my dad.

Using them would probably make him happy. I would certainly want someone to use what tools I've collected after I am gone.

My Craftsman work perfectly find cross grain. No restrictions at all. And, I take more than 1/8" at a pass.

I have in the past but replacement blades cannot be found or at least the Jet Brand cannot be found. Also since my stroke using these are a little more rough than just a standard dado blade, like GeorgeC mention before being a 2 blade setup its not as smooth running :)

No need to fear them .....

There are 3 cutter sets, and single cutter sets on Ebay;
https://www.ebay.com/sch/i.html?_fro...g+set&_sacat=0

Using a 3 cutter set will obviously be smoother, but plenty of folks have used a single cutter style. Your Jet set is the only two cutter set I've ever seen. I've had the 3 cutter sets for many years, but only used them once or twice. It is as intimidating as a full width dado set, but no more dangerous in my opinion. Use only long lengths of stock when working with these sets. And follow through with push shoes that will not slip off into the cutters which would cause a kickback. Use a zero clearance throat plate as well.

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)

My dad had the craftsman 3 blade set. He only used it one time. Scared him. I got them when he passed. Never even considered using them. Widow maker for sure if you are not on your A game when you use them.

George, OK, I concede. My thinking I guess boils down to kickback if the wood were to split while going cross grain, but if others have tried it with no problems, My thinking was flawed.

I cut across the grain with these when I used them last about 20 years ago and no tear out as long as you took shallow cuts. Now if I had a cabinet saw or a large standard table saw I might consider using this but I only got a small portable saw. Besides using the standard dado set I have is alot smoother :)
