Hi again -
I'm not sure if you prefer I start a new thread each time I want to ask something new. Some sites prefer you keep one thread to follow how a project is going. Let me know.
Anyhow - before you chastise me...
remember I am green - don't have a lot of cash to spare and if that isn't bad enough - this is only my second project ever.
The first one was a knife cabinet for my husband and I only had a circular saw to build it with. All things considered - it turned out okay. Not great - but okay.
I didn't have a table saw, and I know everyone has suggested I buy a good quality one, but this is what I could afford.
Skil 10" table saw - $200
Mibro Industrial 8" stacking dado blade set - $49
I am trying to learn about how to use dado blades safely and install the blades properly. I am a bit concerned though as the "extremely" limited set of instructions that came with the set states this under Product Care -
"Do NOT use with miter saws, portable circular saws or portable table saws."
So - since this could be considered a "portable" table saw - do you think its safe to use this dado blade with this table saw?
I have read a little this morning and it appears that Freud? is the preferred set of dado blades - but they are about $200 a set.
Also - I need some help understanding how to set the blades up. Like I said the instructions are .....well limited in that it appears they seem to think that everyone who buys a set of dado blades knows how to use them..... so your advice would be appreciated.
Also - I saw a video this morning with a cool set of board pushers
for safely pushing the board through the dado blade when cutting. They had a plastic handle and what looks like a foam base with grooves for grabbing the wood. Anyone know where I can get some of those? The guy noted they came with a planer he bought. I have access to Lowe's, Home Depot, Ace, True Value and Western Building center. So I'm sure I can find something like it here without having to shop online.
Thanks again for your assistance.
