CMT Orange Precision Dado Blade Set 8" x T12 FTG+ATB
Jonathan's Hot Take Description:
This new and improved offering from CMT is finally compatible with Sawstop.
This 2x12 tooth set can give you really good all-around dados and grooves in everything from plywood to the hardest of hardwoods. The 12t would be considered a general purpose dado set compared to the finer finish 24t set we also carry.
I absolutely love my dado set and prefer cutting grooves on the table saw so much more than the router table. This set comes in a hard plastic carrying case that will keep your set safe for as long as you own it.
The chippers are set using CMTs new blade setting marks, which make putting your dado stack to work quick and painless.
