With just four passes on the table saw, the Rockler Miter Fold Dado Set turns a flat sheet of plywood or hardwood into a box with four sides and a top or bottom. The blade cuts a profiled channel through most of the wood, leaving just the face veneer intact. The joint is then folded, hinging on the veneer, which leaves a seamless corner, and grain that flows beautifully through the joint. The miter fold blade can be used to create casework, boxes and drawers with minimal tools and setup, and can also be used as an ordinary 8'' dado set. When compared to a simple v-groove miter fold, the Rockler Miter Fold makes a joint that is stronger, easier to clamp and less prone to glue squeeze-out. The unique locking profile keeps the miters from sliding around under clamping pressure, and creates a longer joint line for greater strength. A common problem with basic 45° miter folds is that glue is funneled to the inside of the joint when the joint is folded closed. The Rockler Miter Fold dado cutter uses a rabbet profile at the inside of the joint to reduce this tendency. The result is a strong, clean joint with almost no sanding required.


Features:

  • Just four cuts to make a box with four sides and a top/bottom
  • Works with plywood or hardwood ranging from 1/4'' to 3/4'' nominal thickness
  • One box from a single sheet of material means perfect grain match, with flow-through grain at four edges
  • Veneer can be left intact for a truly seamless look (use tape to reinforce the delicate veneer)
  • Lock miter design allows easier clamping—miters won't slide around under clamping pressure
  • More glue area than a simple V-groove type miter fold joint
  • Rabbet profile on inside of joint helps to stop glue squeeze-out toward interior of box
  • May also be used as an 8'' dado set for cutting dados
  • High-grade carbide teeth for sharpness and durability
  • Non-stick coating protects against pitch buildup and corrosion

Note: Table saw must be capable of running an 8'' dado stack. Some saws may require a thinner arbor nut/flange to cut miter folds in 3/4'' material. Not compatible with SawStop or any other saws equipped with flesh-detection technology. Specially profiled blade is compatible with the included dado set only.

Love this thing!
First of all - Great Results!

Setup is critical, but was much easier than I expected (check out available YouTube videos for how-to).

The ease of setup and simplicity of use are outstanding. No more dovetails for me. My current project calls for 24 drawers\pullouts and this set has simplified everything.

Thank you Rockler and Andrew Klein!

Strange Reviews
I read the two reviews and found them to be other than about the tool quality. Out of stock happens and the Dado Stack not fitting sound to me like a customer error.

Pretty Darn Sweet
Takes some work to set up. Trial and error with shims to achieve optimum fold. Also, pre-finished plywood performs worse than unfinished-- more cracking and irregular seams. Also, understand the process of cutting on both sides of the fence.

Having said that, see pics + video of finished product. Ply was 3/4" prefinished Cherry. I used a fruitwood stain to blend seams with Cherry prefin after touching up edges with a rubber sanding block with 150 grit. Left top edges natural ply, finished with simple oil-based satin.

Will these bladed fit on the DEWALT DWE7491RS 10-Inch Jobsite Table Saw ?
Huggie Bear on May 18, 2019
I know it says “can’t be used with sawstop” but is this just meaning the brake won’t work, or that it simply won’t fit? Can’t I bypass the brake, or use the 12” blade brake instead of dado brake?
Dliguori25 on Feb 1, 2019
BEST ANSWER: The tip of the specialty blade is larger than 8" diameter, so it won't fit in the with the 8" brake cartridge installed. If you try to use a 10" blade (I don't think there is one for 12" blades) the saw won't run because there is a proximity sensor that needs to detect that the blade is close to the brake, or it won't run, even in bypass mode.
How do you use miter fold on DeWalt contractor saw with 3/4 plywood?
James B on Mar 25, 2019
BEST ANSWER: Depending on the arbor size you might not be able to. Also you need zero clearance inserts or use a sacrificial bed.
how long is the arbour shaft required to be for the Miter fold dado set?
Hardeep H on Mar 26, 2019
Could I use it with carefully thicknessed solid wood?
William L V on Nov 15, 2019
BEST ANSWER: First— I haven’t tried it. Second— I would suspect that the pliability of the wood would play a role. Nonetheless l would be inclined to say yes, because 1/32” is the thickness of the point of inflection, which is pretty much “sub-ply”. Having said that, I found that unfinished ply works better than prefinished, because prefin is more brittle, which increases the irregular cracking, regardless of grain direction. A simple test would be cutting a V groove in solid wood to the 1/32nd mark, and trying the fold. A router bit could do that effectively. Make sure you use masking tape to hold things together.
How does the dado set alone compare to others? Looking for a dado set and like the miter fold also so hoping this would be a good value at sale price.
Richard R on Dec 19, 2019
BEST ANSWER: Good question, perfectly good so far
Does this come with a storage case?
M L on Jun 26, 2019
BEST ANSWER: Yes, a nice classic wooden box. Though ironically not made using the Miter Fold!
I typically use 1/4" or rarely 1/2" for drawer bottoms,but obviously with this tool the sides and bottom are there same. Any cost tradeoff seems worth it, bit doesn't it make for a very heavy drawer?
Anthony B on Mar 20, 2020
BEST ANSWER: My cabinet making expirience is limited, because I do mostly carpentry work. Of course this makes it heavier yet it's done in the fraction of the time. I am sure... this is the future of making any type of box
Can this miter fold dado set be used to make rectangular boxes or only square ones?
Doug S on Oct 23, 2019
BEST ANSWER: I haven't had a chance to use the set yet. But I don't see why not since you are making the cuts that match on the same side and with the same dimension. I know the inventor did a youtube video some time ago, so I'd do a search on youtube to see if you can get a more experienced answer. Good luck.
I already have a dado set. Do I need to buy this one?
Gale M on Jan 13, 2020
BEST ANSWER: Only if you specifically need to make seamless boxes or have an extra $350 no one needs. This is more useful if you don't have a Dado set (or one of the main blades of your current one broke) and want more functionality.
Can this be used with 10” Radial Arm Saw?
Mike G on Jan 6, 2020
BEST ANSWER: I wouldn't try it. As with any dado set, the depth of cut (for most purposes) is critical - even more so here. If you can control that precisely, then maybe. The arbor specs are also critical. Check yours against the dado set specs.
Will this fit a BT3000 table saw?
Joseph H on Nov 30, 2019
BEST ANSWER: I'm sorry I don't know. It says if the saw can run an 8" dado stack it should work. I'd check with the saw manufacturer and see what they say. Good Luck.
Can I buy just the special dado blade as I already have the complete set?
Don H on Apr 12, 2019
BEST ANSWER: While the included dado blades can also be used as a dado set, the specially profiled blade is compatible with the included dado set only.
Can use the special blade with my existing dado set?
Joseph D on Oct 30, 2019
BEST ANSWER: Joseph - according to the information on the Rockler site, The "Specially profiled blade is compatible with the included dado set only." I'm curious, why would you want to use it with another dado set?
Can it be used to make cabinet box frames as well?
oldporkchops on Oct 10, 2019
BEST ANSWER: I’m assuming so, although the larger the box is the harder it is to make it.. However if you have a cabinet saw with a larger than most rip capacity and maybe some Jessem stock guides to help manage the big work piece, I could see someone making some pretty large boxes.
Will this work for a Shopsmith? (I believe his is a Mark V)
Leigh M on Dec 15, 2019
BEST ANSWER: Unfortunately it will not.
Why can this not be used on sawstop?
4thgencraftsman on Aug 30, 2019
BEST ANSWER: I haven't tried on mine, but I think it can't be made to work with the blade break.
Will this work with 5/8 plywood? I’m a cabinet maker will this speed up the drawer making process?
Ryan on May 9, 2019
BEST ANSWER: YES DEFINITELY, You will need a lot of infeed/outfeed space to make it really efficient.
What arbor shaft length is recommended?
Zack B on Mar 8, 2019
BEST ANSWER: I haven't tried it on my Dewalt contractor saw (looks too small), but fits fine on my Delta industrial. Cabinet saw. Looks close when fitting with shims, but there are a few threads free on the other side of the nut.
Does Dewalt 745 support 8” dado stack blade?
