I've got a Craftsman 7" stacked dado set, whenever I cut dados the bottom channel is not clean, I generally have 2 channels where the 2 outer blades run and but inbetween the wood is about 1/32" or so higher than where the outer blades ran, it's almost like the chippers aren't long enough to give a clean cut. Is it the dado, my saw, or what. If dado can someone recommend a dado set that won't do this. Thanks

Most inexpensive dado blade sets will do this, I know that both American Woodworker and Wood magazine have both had comparisons on sets, I can't find the issues though.

Hi Mustang,
Make sure that the teeth are not lined up but separate them so that they are equally balanced and that the teeth are in the spaces in the gullets. This somtimes allows the blades and chippers to be closer together and clean the dado better. Even with some of the more expensive sets there is sometimes a need to clean the cut out with a chisel after the sawcut is made.....Mark Hammond

Yes, I always put a chipper adjacent to a gullet and stagger my chippers so no 2 cutters on the chippers are adjacent to one another, and I never cut deeper than 1/4" in any pass, I just keep raising my blade and making passes until I get to the right depth. Any other ideas? Thanks
