Prestige super fine dado set, from Amana Tools, produces flat-bottom cuts both with and across the grain, according to the company.
The set features tool-steel plates and D-10 carbide teeth. The 8” diameter, 24-tooth outside blades feature ATB grind geometry with every sixth tooth ground flat for efficient chip removal. Each tooth body also features an anti-kickback design to help prevent overfeeding. It has six four-wing chippers with a standard width capacity of 1/4” to 29/32”, though adjustments can be made in 1/32” increments. Finer adjustments, as small as .002”, can be made using the supplied shim set. Amana says this dado set accommodates today’s undersized plywoods. Contact: Amana Tools.
