Amana Tool rolls out new dado set

14_tools_tech_2Amana Tool has introduced the new Prestige Mighty Adjustable Super-Fine Groover dado set for shaper machines. The set is designed to create smooth edges and flat-bottom cuts both along and across the grain, according to the company’s technical director Frank Misiti.

“With the new set, woodworkers can more easily and safely create deeper tenons and other joints than previously possible with a table saw or using hand tools. Instead of having a whole bunch of cutters, you can have this set, which can cover everything,” says Misiti.

The set, which requires a 3/4” arbor, includes seven laser-cut hardened steel cutters coated in Amana’s new Electro Blu non-stick coating. The coating protects the surface of the blade from resin buildup and corrosion, prolonging the blade life and ensuring optimum performance, according to Amana.

The set sells for $188.95 and includes a shim set for custom adjustments.
