    Comments about Freud SD208 Pro Circular Saw Pro Dado Saw Blade Set 8" x 5/8" Bore :

    I'm long time builder of homes, race cars ect. So, pretty handy. Cabinetry and fine woodworking is fairly new to me though. I had picked up another set for less somewhere else and it looked like offshore garbage so I returned it. Saw reviews for this and went for it. Glad I did. Perfect Dados and tenons. So easy to set up. Well balanced (important with the weight of the 8" set and my 50yr old crasftsman saw. I see no reason for someone at my level to pay $250 or $350 for a better set. Sure pros will have good reason. But I give this 5 stars because for this price point it's absolutely worth every penny and works perfectly. I would say that if you have a light duty saw particularly if the motor is directly driving your blade aka no belt, then you might go with the 6" set because it's lighter. But this thing does not make my saw shake or vibrate at all with all but 1 of the chippers installed. I'm very pleased that I did not cheap out on this.

    Comments about Freud SD208 Pro Circular Saw Pro Dado Saw Blade Set 8" x 5/8" Bore :

    The width chart to show what cutters to use for each dado width is a great idea. I now wish I had bought the 6 inch set rather than the 8 inch set but 8 inch set works well.

    Good set up for the money. If you can afford to spend more and need the best cuts, I would buy the better blades but this set will work just fine for most applications.

    This was the first Dado set I ever owned and to this day still use it. Cuts great, sharp and durable. It's a great set for the money. I know there's more expensive and better Dado sets out there and I will upgrade eventually. But, for [$]it works great!!!

    Comments about Freud SD208 Pro Circular Saw Pro Dado Saw Blade Set 8" x 5/8" Bore :

    One of the outer blades cuts "half a red cat-hair" deeper, which is annoying to sand out, but I plan to experiment with rotating that component to see if this flaw will disappear.

    Comments about Freud SD208 Pro Circular Saw Pro Dado Saw Blade Set 8" x 5/8" Bore :

    I have been into woodworking for several years but only recently was able to devote the kind of time I wanted. I usually had the attitude that a blad is a blade is a blade. That has ablsolutely changed with my purchase of the Freud Dado set. I have never experienced such clean and accurate cuts before. It was more expensive than the last dado set I had, but would have been worth it at twice the price. You get what you pay for has a whole new meaning for me.

    Great Dado Set for the Price

    Comments about Freud SD208 Pro Circular Saw Pro Dado Saw Blade Set 8" x 5/8" Bore :

    This dado set has been working great for me. It makes nice clean, sharp cuts in plywood and comes with an ample set of shims for dialing in an exact width. I'm sure there are better dado sets out there, but the Freud is very good for the price. The only downside may be that the chippers are only two toothed versions as opposed to the four-toothed chippers of the Freud Super Dado set.
