Rated 4.0 out of 5.0 by ligerpfish Great Quality Dado
My only (minor) complaint is the price, but I'm glad I bought this dado set. The quality is top-notch in my opinion. I used it right away with my Bosch table saw as I was making some shelves, and the cuts were good considering I was using the maximum width for the set.

This dado set is easy to setup on the table saw, the provided guide makes knowing which blades to use for the appropriate cut width a breeze. Also the blades are very sharp, and cut through wood like butter. I had the choice of picking a set that was half the cost, however knowing how good Diablo blades are I felt it best to spring for the extra cost and have a set that cuts very accurately.

Rated 5.0 out of 5.0 by SHSUbearkat Works like it's supposed to.
I used my stacked dado set 10 min after I got it to make some box joints and it did great. Thin discs that are included make it easy to get the perfect thickness.

I was a machinist for 22 years and I had used this brand of saw blade which is the best in my opinion.I made all my own work benches and I wish I had the dado blades then.The square sides and clean cuts makes making half lap and other joinery easy.

Rated 4.0 out of 5.0 by MitchH Nice set
It includes 2 outside blades, 3 chippers Not 2chippers, spacers and shims. You can get additional shims but the diversity of this product for anything dado for the price is very good. Pay the extra for the Diablo/Freud technology. Anytime I try to save money and get cheaper blades at first I end up buying a Diablo/Freud later and spending more than I wanted to originally. Just get one.
4 stars because the store should carry SD206 Pro blades from the same manufacturer as this one I bought in a rush. An 8 inch Dado blade is unnecessary on many of the lower powered table saws that the DIYer will buy. A 6 inch blade like the SD206 would do a better job, put less strain on the motor of your table saw, is a Professional version from the same manufacturer and is cheaper. But the HD purchaser is smarter than I am (apparently) and the reviewer of the Customer Reviews probably will kick this back with some excuse to me by email so the guy/gal who needs to know will remain in the dark. Thanks.

First stacked dado, I was so excited to use it. I have been getting into woodworking and I wanted a good dado set for my first one and this one is amazing. I just wish it wasn't so expensive.

Rated 1.0 out of 5.0 by Bram chipped teeth
bought this dado set thinking this Freud products price was a great value. However, after just a few uses, I noticed a chipped carbide tooth. I was using it to dado birch plywood and cypress. I wasn't sure what might have happened. I used it a few more times and subsequently noticed more chipped teeth. I am an experienced woodworker. I suspect that my set had faulty carbide teeth. The upside is that Home Depot allowed me to return it... The sales clerk recalled another return for the same reason.

Great Dado set. Comes with everything you need. two blades, chippers, spacers, and shims. I've used this a ton making cabinets for my workshop area and they work great. Price wise they're similar to actual Freud brand blades (Diablos are made by Freud) I really don't know why you spend more for a dado set if you're a weekend woodworker. Includes a decent heavy plastic case to store blades.
