Overview

The SD500 Series dado sets were the first to include a 3/32" thick chipper and has the flexibility of an adjustable dado to handle today's undersized plywood. This allows the cut width to be adjusted in 1/32" increments and doubles the number of slot widths available. A shim set is also included with the dado set for fine adjustments.

Nice unit, better service!

Gordon Posted December 3, 2014
Got this set-up to begin a cabinet project I've been planning for a while. For the most part it performs as advertised: clean smooth cuts, flat bottoms. Unfortunately, I found my 1/16th chipper had a long tooth which would groove the bottom wherever it was placed. Fortunately, Rockler and Freud stand behind their products and they sent a replacement with free return without a moments hesitation. Very, very reassuring customer support.

Excellent Dado Set - who cares about the case?

Kevin V. Posted June 18, 2014
I use this dado set on a regular basis, primarily in cherry, maple, oak, and a variety of plywood types; and I think this set is excellent. I never have tear-out and it leaves a very clean edge all around. Yes, the case is cheap, but it works long enough to build your own case for saw blades. Besides, judging the case is like complaining about a table saw because you don't like the color of the paint, it will never impact your project one bit!

I was using a cheap $50...

I was using a cheap $50 dado set from a big-box store and it was chipping the heck out of my birch plywood and left a horribly messy bottom. I took the plunge on this Freud set and it was money well spent. No chipping at all and the bottoms on my dados are clean.
