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”.
