Hi,
Just joined. I am a novice woodworker form the UK. Retired after nearly 40 years in the Royal Navy and am now enjoying trying to make tuff out of wood. I have lots of prohectsI would like to make but little experience in doing so. I have a good Trend T5 V2 and a store bought budget Router table as well as a Chop saw, Makita Table saw, De Walt Bandsaw and an old pillar drill.
We don't seem to have Dado capable table saws. Any I have seen and the one I own has a single blade so cutting slots, dados, tenons etc is the Router's job.

You might consider buying a DadoWiz, which allows you to use your router to cut dados. It is very precise and easy to use. You also need to buy a good rail to guide it. I think its extremely flexible. You could also do dados with a home made jig. You can find plans for it here Exact-Width Dado Jig.

Tom,
Thanks very much for your helpful reply. I have printed off the article and will have a go at making it. Currently making a 7' x 3.5' outside work bench from planks of Noble Fir that were going cheap at a National Trust (all the same National Park) site.
