Bringing a thread up from the dead.

Some years ago I bought a 6" Craftsman dado set for my Craftsman job site table saw. The set is crap. I was ignorant as hell about joinery but I could tell the dados were bad. But I figured maybe that was just the nature of dados in plywood. I know a little better now.

I now seek advice on a general purpose dado set for my 4.4 hp, 4000 rpm, 10" table saw. Should I stick with a 6" set? What do you think of this Freud set for $78.50 shipped?

I'm happy with mine.
It looks like a good deal.
If there's only a couple dollars difference I like to support my local stores, but if there's a big difference I go on line.
I bought a 10" Frued multi purpose blade local, and I must have gotten the one in a million that for some reason the carbide started to chip after about a week of very little use, they exchanged it for me with no problems.
It's been many years and the replacement blade has never chipped.
I'm not sure how easily the exchange would have gone if I had purchased it on line.
Just some food for thought.
