What does this group recommend for the best dado blade for cutting the plywood veneer core?
We bought a Forrest dado set a few years ago and have been very happy with it , better than any of the Freud sets I had over the years
Forrest if you got the coin.
Oshlun cheapy works as well as a Freud. Amazon sells them.
FS Tool has a couple of nice dados, a standard and a fine, 40 tooth.
When it comes to blades Iíve had the best service from Freud. About $80 for their super 8 dado I think and it will last me forever.
This is probably gonna sound amateurish, but I've had a few dado sets and the one the I love the best is a Dewalt. It has a nice set of shims and a guide that tells you exactly what blades and shims to use for various odd plywood thicknesses. I've had the Freud Super 8 and another Freud set and the Dewalt is just as good and much handier and cheaper. You can pick them up for $100 sometimes on a special.
We have an old Systematic. No longer available. Was the best I ever used. We now use Ridge Carbide. Great blades and great service.
