PhilBa another point about dado sets - bigger costs a lot more.

DaninVan Dave; another factor is that you need more 'power' to drive the larger circumference of the 10" dado stack.
As Stick asks, 'How deep do you want to go?'

I can't think of any occasion that I needed to exceed my 8" set, and if I had, I doubt that my 1 1/2HP contractor saw would have been up to a 3/4" X Marianas Trench cut...

99% of dado cuts are covered well by a 6"...
not many do the 10"...

chessnut2 Thanks, Herb. I'll keep that in mind. And to Dave: I just heard back from the guy who posted the youtube video, and he said that after he had done the alteration, he realized that all he would have had to fill was the groove in the arbor shaft. He had to clean the threads, but then with the groove filled, he had enough surface for the Freud cutters to seat properly. Jim

Herb Stoops Yes Ridgid builds some of the Craftsman saws.
My Bosch is set up for dadoing with the freud box cutter blade,and I don't have a problem with it. On my 10" old craftsman TS, The thin shims on the dado set would fall into the threads though and I would have trouble tightening the blades. SO I had to use a thin scotch tape and tape them in place. On my current 12" craftsman I don't seem to have that problem.
I use the dado for the larger box joints.
