Product Description

Product Description

If you're looking for the finest dado set on the market, look no further than the 6" Dado King from Forrest Manufacturing. The Dado King features all the same quality and precision found in Forrest blades. Each outside cutting blade is 6� in diameter with 24 precisely ground C4 carbide teeth. The chippers are the 4-wing type, again equipped with the same high quality C4 carbide teeth. Includes four 1/8" chippers, one 3/32" chipper, and one 1/16" chipper. With various combinations, dadoes from 1/4" through 29/32" in width are possible and can be set to precise widths with the included magnetic shim set. Also includes high impact storage case.

From the Manufacturer

Forrest's blades offer a superior cut that leaves a rip-cut saw edge that is as smooth as if it had been sanded, and a cross-cut edge that is almost mark-free. The blades run very quietly, and backside tearout in plywood is negligible. Each blade is virtually hand-made. The plate is hand-tensioned (up to 15 minutes per blade), superior C-4 carbide teeth are hand-brazed to the plate, and the blade is straightened and restraightened multiple times throughout the process. Think of a Forrest blade as a tool in your shop, not an accessory. Forrest stands behind it's blades by offering a sharpening service that bring blades back to the exact tolerances offered in a new blade. And this same exacting service is available for other manufacturer's blades as well, so they should come back better than new. Forrest Woodworker 1 Saw Blade For Radial and Table Saws. These trim and cross-cut ALL PURPOSE blades give scratch-free POLISHED cuts on wood, RIP or CROSSCUT, up to 2" thick. They have a 30° Alternate Top Bevel with a 5° Face Hook on 10" diameters and smaller.

My philosiphy is to buy the best and only cry once (and I cried like a baby when I bought this). But now that it's paid for, I don't worry about my dado performance. It has cut sharp, splinter free dados in everything I have tried. Features 4 bladed chippers including a 3/32" chipper, and a shim set for fine adjustments. An excellent complement for a Woodworker II combo blade. A six inch set is recommended for most contractor saws because of the rotating mass. Try that wobble type dado if you must, just bookmark this page for when you finally wise up.

After using the Forrest Dado King I will be updating all my saw blades to the Forrest brand. The Forrest Dado is easy to use and produces outstanding results. It is well worth the investment even for the novice woodworker like me.

Used this blade to cut dados into the balusters of a spiral staircase. Makes nice clean cuts. Look forward to using it on several other cabinet projects that I have coming in the spring.

The Forrest 6" x 24-Tooth Dado Set cuts perfect dados without a doubt. The problem is, mine is not perfecty accurate. For 3/4" it calls for both outside blades and 4 - 1/4" chippers. When I put this configuration on, it is not 3/4". I have to use the plastic shims. For [the price], this is not acceptable in my book. I don't know if I just got a bad set or if this is the way they are made. Besides that, the cut is nothing less than perfect....
