Will this fit Ryobi RTS11?

Asked by Gwizzy November 21, 2020

Answer

Will it work yes. Will it work well no. This is a ryobi jobsite we are talking about. I run this on a 3 hp sawstop pcs and even if I run to much that saw slows down. I recommend a 6 inch dado set as it has about half the mass of an 8 inch set

They will work on ANY table saw with a 5/8" arbor.

How many horsepower motor does this require?

Asked by Oatmeal November 18, 2020
1
Answer

There is no horsepower requirement or restriction on this set. The only thing horsepower will allow you to do is cut through thicker stock, or more hardwoods with greater ease. I ran this on a contractors saw without issue, as long as your arbor is long enough to take the stack of blades for the thickness you are trying to cut. Worst case you need to make multiple passes, which is generally recommended anyways.

will the dado work on my 10 in rigid job site table saw

Asked by brad October 30, 2020

Measure the arbor on your saw. I've answered this question a few times, and the answer applies to many saws. When you put the entire dado together it is more than an inch wide on the arbor. Most new arbors are not long enough, or the 5/8 inch part is not long enough. They are 5/8th" where a single blade fits, and then they taper to a smaller threaded area. If the threaded area is 5/8, or the arbor is long enough, you can use this dado. I use mine on a 50 year old radial arm saw. I cannot use it on my newer saws.

Asked by Heavy October 10, 2020

It will work in the sense that the arbor is 5/8. But you also have to think about power. If the amperage is anything less than 15, then I recommend you look for a 6 inch set. I had a Ridgid contractor saw and that struggled with this blade set. Only with my 3 hp cabinet grade table saw did i see the problem go away.

Can't go wrong with the Diablo Stacked Dado set! This was my foray into the use of a stacked dado blade. I undertook the effort of building kitchen cabinets and I knew that to do them properly I needed the backboard to be dado'd into the side panels. My table saw is a Craftsman 113.298 and is at least 40 years old! It's also a 10" blade saw, so I was concerned about using an 8" blade. Several friends that have used stacked dado's said, "Don't go cheap! Expect to pay over $200..." All in all, I cut nearly 100 dado slots, mostly 1/2" and a handful of 3/4". The saw handled this set wonderfully! My cuts were only 3/8" deep, so the blade size different had zero impact. All of the cuts were very clean and my board fits very smoothly and the cabinets turned out amazing! Advise I'd give after you buy this is to make sure you keep consistent pressure on the board as it goes over the blade, not all boards are completely flat and I did encounter 1 cut that wasn't deep enough and it caused me to scratch my head for a long while trying to figure out what was wrong. Also, buy a new zero clearance insert for your saw at the time you get this set. If your saw is anything like mine, the blade insert is metal and the hole is not easily expandable. It's way smarter & better to have an insert sized for doing dado cuts. Don't be like me and make the cuts without an insert!

Awesome set of dado blades. Bought a less expensive pair earlier on and my dados and grooves would have course bottoms I would have to chisel or sand out. Enter Diablo Freud dado blades. These guys cut a very smooth channel with minimal sanding needed almost effortlessly. Love love love these and looking forward to using them in my shop.

This was my first ever dado set and it exceeded my expectations. I've had my eye on this for a while and am so glad I finally purchased. I am a hobby woodworker at best, but this dado set has opened up so many possibilities for me. Did a trial run with it and it went so smoothly that I jumped right into my first project with it.

It’s a good quality product. First time users, read carefully the installation procedure and table saw specs! Your table saw should be designed to work with dado sets and dado blades must have higher max RPM than your table saw RPM. Oh, dado set diameter should fit into the table saw.

Used to make 1/4" Dado slot cuts on the vertical dimension of 2x4's to accommodate galvanized mesh livestock panels for goat pens. Worked very well with a basic Ryobi table saw after changing blade spacers. There are some good YouTube videos showing best practices for mounting and using Dado blades which I highly recommend if you have never worked with these tools. My application only required one of the included chippers and no shims. Picking these components to make the proper width notch was pretty easy to determine via the included instructions. My only complaint was the instructions themselves. Not the content - which was good, just the fact that a ton of info was crammed onto a small, illustrated sheet that was part of the display packaging. Would have been nice to have more detail on a separate, more easy to read sheet.

This blade gives a great finish cut. I've tried using a rip blade on my table saw to make dados, with multiple passes, but nothing beats an actual dado setup. So far I've only used the stacked blades for a .25" thickness. Blade is precise and the cuts are near perfect straight off the saw before sanding.

Awesome. Perfect. Noobie.
Never used a dado before my life. After adjusting my table saw in multiple increments I finally said screw it and bought this set. (Im making thomas the train track shelves for storage and display for my sons room). Glad I went with this one and not the cheaper one. It works real good when both blades are facing forward like they're supposed to. Lol. Yeah my first test cut I had one blade on backwards. Hey I said I was a newbie. My only complaint keeping it from getting five stars is the probted/etched sizes on the shims are not all very legible espectially rhe really thin ones. The inclusion of more durable and larger printed instructions would be better too. Anyhow...project is coming along grey thanks to this dado. My "plunging" the boards into and off of the blade shy of the ends is prolly not the safest thing to do but the end product is so much better.

See very fine print on packaging to find instructions.
I have just purchased this dado set, and it appears to be a good set, but I have not used it yet. I saw another review that this dado set does not come with instructions. I have found the instructions in the very fine print on the back of the packaging cardboard. See attached pictures and text below for copy of instructions. DIABLO DD208H STACKED DADO SET SAVE THESE INSTRUCTIONS 1- Setup: - Disconnect power before installing, or adjusting the dado. - Use the chart to select the components needed for width of dado. - After cleaning, place the first outside blade on the arbor, being sure rotation Is correct. - If chippers are being used, place them on next with the teeth of the chippers. aligning with the two open spaces on the outside blade. - If more than one chipper is used, rotate every other chipper 90. - If spacers are used, place only one spacer between each pair of chippers or between a chipper and an outside blade. - Install second outside blade, ensuring that the teeth of the last chipper are located in the two open spaces on the outside blade. 2- Adjusting Fit: - After installing dado and replacing the appropriate safety guards, make a test cut in a scrap piece of wood. - If fit is too tight: disconnect power, remove the outside blade, install the appropriate shims (shims not included - Shim set #SS100 is available from any Freud dealer). reinstall the outside blade and guards. and make another test cut. - If fit is too loose: disconnect power, remove the outside blade, remove the chippers, install the chippers for the next smaller sized dado, install the appropriate shims, reinstall the outside blade and guards, and make another test cut. - Repeat this process until desired fit is attained. 3- Use Both Outside Blades: - Never use the chippers by themselves, or with only one outside blade. - Not using both outside blades can cause personal injury, or damage to the tool. 4- Clean well: - Be sure all components are clean and free from dust and chips. - Chips between components may affect performance and damage tools. 5- Multiple passes: - Wide dadoes remove large amounts of material in a single pass at full depth. - Multiple passes starting at lower depth of cut may be required for proper control and safety.

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.

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.
