CMT Orange Tools Locking Precision Dado Blade Set 8" X T12 FTG+ATB

Jonathan’s Hot Take:Really cool dado set. If you’ve ever seen my Sawstop video you know that when a dado brake activation happens the teeth can come in contact with each other and shatter. This solves that problem and is certainly the safest dado out there for use in a Sawstop. It is also the only dado stack that is compliant with EU regulations. It also comes with a bunch of magnetic shims and chippers which is great.

Description: CMT is proud to introduce a brand new Patent Pending Locked Dado Pro Set unlike any other! This is theFIRST EVER Dado ever deemed UNI EN847 compliant. This means that while the Dado is rotating, the assembled elements will never come into contact with each other! This is possible thanks to unique blade body design and ‘never before seen’ special “lock spacers”.

  • laminates & melamines, veneer plywood.
  • Orange Shield Coating protects from heat, gumming and corrosion.

    Cuts like a dream

    Goes together easy enough, cuts really well. My only nit is the missing 0.012" shim.

    Love this Blade

    Installing this blade on my table saw changed my woodworking experience. It cuts so smoothly and doesn’t bog down my saw! This has become my go to blade for nearly all table saw operations. Thank you to KM Tools for making these blades so accessible.

    Traded a Chevy for a Lincoln

    Moving to a different brand of dado was Fricken Awesome! CMT new dado made Me feel more comfortable with the locking shims,instead of just stacking and hopefully not clinking the chippers on the outside blades . Dado’s can be intimidating setting up,and a lot of mass is spinning right at you,but this really put me at ease!!! The small discs are a bit hokey so I will keep my old Freud shims . I still like Chevy but if can drive a Lincoln , why not??? Hop in take it for a ride.
