From the manufacturer
Freud's industrial saw blades are carefully crafted using the best materials, the most innovative designs, and the industry's most sophisticated manufacturing processes. Every blade is specifically designed for superior performance and maximum life. Select the best blade for your application from a wide variety of designs and sizes, all featuring Freud's unique coatings and TiCo Hi-Density Carbide.
TiCo Hi-Density carbide is a specially formulated, highly compact Titanium Cobalt Carbide engineered and manufactured by Freud to maximize performance on all Freud cutting tools. Designed in Freud research and development laboratories, Freud's TiCo Hi-Density carbide is scientifically developed using Titanium Carbide, Cobalt and Tungsten (as well as proprietary elements), to produce a supreme product. Carbide size is extremely important when it comes to sharpness as well as the rate at which an edge wears. The larger the carbide grain, the faster an edge will wear. While standard carbides measure as large as 5 microns, and an advanced micrograin carbide can measure 1 micron, Freud's TiCo Hi-Density Carbide is miniscule in comparison at .8 microns, with a laminate blend as small as .4 microns.

Clean edges, square shoulders, and flat bottoms: the Freud SD208 Eight-Inch Professional Dado Set cuts with ultimate precision, so you can achieve them all. This is your go-to set for efficiently creating dadoes and grooves in a wide range of materials from hardwood to laminate. Boasting thick MicroGrain carbide tips and an anti-kickback design, the set's two outside blades can be resharpened for long-term accuracy. For added versatility, the kit cuts grooves spanning 1/4 to 7/8 inch and includes a shim set.
The perfect dado set for the fine cabinetmaker or weekend woodworker, the Freud SD208 produces dadoes and grooves that meet with flush, even edges. So you can be assured of precise cuts every time, the set is equipped with precision-grade features, starting with two proprietary outside blades that can be resharpened to deliver accuracy for the long term.
These high-quality eight-inch, 12-tooth blades with 5/8-inch arbors cut dadoes and grooves that are clean, flat, and virtually splinter free. Cuts made by these blades are accurate the first time, saving you from making repeated passes over the same workpiece.
Flexibility for Cutting Hardwoods, Laminates, and More
The Freud SD208 accommodates a wide range of materials, so you can use it from project to project. And because it requires less power to feed, it is ideal for use with underpowered saws. Use it to create dadoes and grooves in hardwood, softwood, chip board, plywood, and laminate (not recommended for non-ferrous materials).
Two-Wing Chippers, Spacers, and Shim Set for Fine Adjustments
The set's included chippers/spacers (three 1/8-inch chippers and three 1/16-inch spacers) save you time and energy. With their two-wing design, they efficiently remove waste material and smooth the edges of your workpiece. Plus, they allow you to fine-tune your cuts from 1/4 to 7/8 inch, so you have accurate control over the desired width.
And with the Freud SD208's included shim set, you never have to give up making dadoes with a workpiece that's too thin to fit the width of your dado blades. This handy shim set expands the range of your kerf adjustments, giving you even greater control for achieving a flawless finished workpiece.
Anti-Kickback Design for Safe Operation
The quality of this dado set is enhanced by its anti-kickback design, which gives you an added margin of safety while you work.
MicroGrain Carbide Tips for Long-Lasting Performance
So you can get maximum performance out of this set, the blade components are constructed with Freud's TiCo Hi-Density Carbide. This means the blades can withstand numerous sharpenings and still retain their precision. And a Tri-metal Brazing process gives the blades impact resistance, so they last for the long term without dulling (a condition that can cause torn wood and uneven cuts).

Top customer reviews
I use Dado blades quite a bit, the set I was using gave me uneven cuts at the bottom and the spacers were cardboard and paper. The Freud blades leave a nice flat bottom and the spacers are metal which won't flatten out or change with humidity. The set has quite a few width options.
I decided to buy this set because I was trying to make finger joint boxes and the other set I had just wouldn't allow for a nice joint. The Freud set creates a nice tight fitting joint.
1. Arrived as advertised.
2. High quality blades.
3. Metallic spacers.
4. Good range of width options.
5. Good clean cuts.
1. I didn't buy earlier.
I didn't check the accuracy of the blade or shim thicknesses against what they publish because I never set up that way. I always measure test cuts. Just the way grandpa taught me!
The Blade – Right away you can tell it’s made of good material. I set I up to cut 3/4” dados at 3/8” deep. It made clean cuts in hardwood, softwood, and veneered Plywood. Flat bottoms and clean edges all the way down the face. There was some tear out on the trailing edge of the board where the blade exits. But that’s a standard table saw issue and a backer board solved that problem quick. The Arbor was supposed to be 5/8” but the inside blade arbor hole was slightly undersized causing it to get stuck on my arbor the first time. Once free, I took a Dremel with a sanding disk and made two passes around the hole. Works perfectly now.
Accuracy – The 3/4” setting as described on the packaging was slightly under, closer to 47/64”. Which is perfect for accepting Plywood but not for perfectly cut 3/4” pieces. But it comes with various shims to slide in to fine tune the thickness. Just make sure to make test cuts.
Case – the case is made of sturdy material and holds the blades snug in place. I also like that I can actually hang it on my pegboard with my other saw blades.
Shipping and Handling – Came in perfect time and condition. I selected 2 day Shipping and it arrived the next day. It was wrapped up very tightly in bubble wrap.
All in all it is a fine blade. Good quality like all Freud blades.
If there was anything I wish Freud would have done differently is make the instruction sheet a little more permanent. I almost threw it in the trash with the rest of the packaging. Save the paper cover!
blade thicknesses and it worked out OK doing it that way. Cut was good with no tear out or roughness in the cut.
