The "Forrest Dado King" is just...
The Forrest Dado King; is just that - the finest in every respect period! This is my second dado set I have purchased which was necessary when my SawStop break activated due to something in the wood. SawStop replaced my break cartridge at N/C but my blade was ruined! I had been using the Freud dado set which is excellent too. However, I like the shape of the middle chippers better than Freud's and they are easier to handle and work with. Also, the plastic storage and carrying case is much nicer and easier to work with too. As far as the cut quality - EXCELLENT! The Freud set is a five star rating too but it's the other details and packaging I like better with this set. I purchased the Forrest because I have been using their Woodworker II combination blade which is the finest out there. I hope this helps.

Hard to do some important processes on the table saw without a dado stack. And, for the home enthusiast, hobbyist woodworker, this Forrest Dado King is simply the best you can get. Highly recommended!

Does this dado set require the use of shims?
Carl J on Nov 7, 2015
BEST ANSWER: This set also includes a variety of shims, you will only need to use them when then width of your cut falls in between the dimensions of the chippers. A common example would be to match the thickness of plywood, which is rarely a standard dimension (i.e. 3/4" is usually more like 23/32")
I have a 10" capable table saw. What size dado blade should I use?
Fred D on Feb 24, 2017
BEST ANSWER: Think most dado sets are about 8". Don't need bigger because you are not usually making deep grooves and obviously no through cuts. Will need or make a dado blade table insert
Does this blade set come with a case?
Jason A on May 21, 2016
BEST ANSWER: It comes with a plastic that protects the blades, but not a typical case that enclose the entire set. It is a really good dado set
Can I buy the chipper blades and shims separately? I've acquired a bunch of used shop gear and have the outside blades but nothing else. Thanks.

BEST ANSWER: Slivers Mill at seven one six 685 four four five eight, they dont have replacement chippers listed on their website but they have helped me with issues like this in the past and are great to work with. Sorry had to write it that way...Rockler was blocking the phone number posting...hope it helps
