    Freud DD508

    Have a chance to trade some stuff for a brand new SD508 dado blade. Not sure if it will work with my Ridgid 3650 or not. Basically it's 125.00 or the trade. What do you all think?

    Got one on sale for $150. Been using it for quite awhile ( a year or so?). Really like it, no complaints at all.

    Dustin as long as they'll fit on the arbor you should be good to go I've cut 3/4 inch dados on my jet contractor saw with no problems.

    Thanks everyone.

    I made the trade. Traded some truestone pen blanks, a few smaller things for pens and a pen drilling vise I had. Being how I sold my lathe to get out of pen turning they weren't going to do me any good anyway.

    Some folks are stalled by not being able to run the whole stack at once. You may or may not be able to. The maximum width you can run is whatever you can get on your saw and still have the nut fully engage the threads. You don't need your usual outside washer that you use with a single blade.

    I find running the dado a bit small and making two passes to be less bother than shimming for an exact fit anyway so I am not really sure if I can get the whole stack on my saw or not. I use the same technique when using the router for dados .

    I have 508 and really like it.

    I do not think you would have any problems.

    If you are getting it for a good deal I would absolutely do it.

    glens idea of running it at smaller than just right size is good if you have a short arbor and if not its still a good way to sneak up on a fit..when ever you can unlaod something you dont use or need to get something you do is always a good deal.. and a big ATTAH boy for gettin away form the spinny vortex now start looking at planes more there nice to you and arent the least bit addictive or expensive
