Setting Up Your Stacked Dado Set

How do I mount the blade on Dewalt 7739? There is a distance piece, two cupped spacers, a nylon washer and a "washer" to change the blade diameter to fit the shaft. The shaft being small and the hole


Did you get a manual with it? If not go to www.manualslib.com and download one for a few bucks. The diameter spacer will likely go inside the blade ID and the cup washers facing cup inwards toward the blade, but without seeing it I can't say. See if there is a picture on "images" online.

I bought a craftsman dado blade set but can't find the instructions and I have no idea how to use it. Is it possible to get instructions


Dado blades are used in a variety of saw applications. Commonly tables saws. The manual for your table saw should identify if the saw is capable of using this blade-set Never used dado blades in a saw that is not intended for them as this can result in severe injury to yourself and or damge to the tool. If your are unsure if your saw can accomodate dado blade please post your make and model of saw and someone will try to help you.

How do I install a dado blade? Does the inside large collar need to come off?


Because of the larger hub assembly, the collar will need to be set aside. Be sure to use a dado insert in the table and get a carbide tipped tool if you can afford it. Make shallow cuts or the work piece will grab and be thrown off of the table. Always make a test cut on similar waste to make sure that it has been set correctly. Make or buy a push stick if you don't have one already. It also make copious amounts of waste! Have fun!

Narrow throat plate should work. Sure you have the blade installed correctly with arbor washers?

Dado blade installation


Yes. normally an eight inch stack dado set is used on a 10 inch saw. You will also have to purchase or fabricate a special throat plate (non-metallic) to accomodate the extra thickness of the dado set.
The number of blades used, and therefore the thickness, varies depending upon the task at hand.
Make sure to use the factory supplied nut and washer to capture and tighten the dado set securely on the arbor.
Be very cautious in the use of dados. Do not raise the set higher than 1/4" or so until you are familiar with the use of a dado set. Try to avoid so-called "wobble" dado sets. They are IMHO more prone to dangerous kickbacks and harder to adjust than a stack dado set with dado shims.

Table saw blade wabbles alot when cutting?


This could be caused by several problems. First unplug the saw. Put a known straight edge against the blade (making sure not to contact the teeth) turn the blade slowly and watch for runout. Second make sure the spacers and blade flanges are on correctly. I would just about think it would be the blade. If you provide the model and brand I can do some more research. Good Luck

I bought a Dado blade set dd208 and there are no instructions


I'm hesitant to even answer, not knowing your skill level. But understanding that you will probably have a use for an item you purchased, and use it one way or another, here's a primer...
Be careful! Never push your hand directly toward the rotating saw such that if the workpiece kicks back your momentum will carry your hand into the blade. Begin by raising the blade only a little above the table surface and run a pass with clean wood over it to get the feel of the resistance a stack of dado blades gives. Consider making a groove in two or more passes if you need to raise the blade more than 1/4" to cut it in a single pass. Use metal dado shims to adjust the precise width of cut. Tighten the stack in a balanced way, such that the carbide teeth are not in contact with one another. Stay away from wobble dado sets. Etc. Etc. Etc.
You may wish to have a look at this website, whose author has obviously given the subject considerable thought: http://www.newwoodworker.com/usngstkddados.html

Finally, be carefull. If you think a single saw blade can tear flesh, imagine what a 3/4" wide swath will do to your hand. Think about your setups. Use test pieces to get them right. Then pay attention while you run your dados. And try to avoid plunge cuts, especially on anything shorter than a couple of feet in length. When you can, use a miter jig in the slot to hold any work you have to pass cross-grain over the dado.
Be careful, feed smoothly, and hold your workpiece firmly against the fence while it passes over the blade.

Blade Height


Basic saw safety dictates that the blade should barely clear the thickness of the material being sawed. This has saved my fingers more than once, Also, make sure you use a push stick for thin rips. They are a lot easier to replace than fingers, and are easily made from scrap stuff. As for the blade diameter, you want to use a 10" blade, but on occasion a smaller blade can be used, just be sure the arbor doesn't rub against the bottom of the table. Dado blades for 10" saws are usually only about 8" in diameter.
