my Saw Stop would not run with the dado blade installed. Then
I realized dado blade is 8" vs. 10" regular blade, and the blade
brake must be installed within a specific clearance in order to work properly. Hence, the need for a dado brake. Duh...!

The miter gauge had a nearly imperceptible nick in it. Unfortunately, one outside blade of the dado stack suffered a bent tooth significant enough to be unrepairable.
Another mistake may have contributed to the damage: When I mounted the stack, I used the blade stabilizer. I don't think the mounting nut engaged enough threads on the arbor. The nut and stabilizer came off during the braking event causing the stack blades and chippers to be skewed in the brake shoe. I think if the blades had stopped square in the shoe, there would have been little to no damage to the dado.
Next time I will not use the stabilizer and double check the miter gauge. One must pay for ones mistakes. I hope this info will help others avoid the same costly misfortune.

Change over from the regular brake is relatively easy.
