I'm thinking about setting up my vintage RAS as a dedicated dado machine. I know some of you have done this.
My question relates to power and choice of a dado head. The old saw is rated at 9 amps, .75 hp and hasn't seemed overly powerful in the small amount I've used it for crosscutting hardwoods. Should I go with the 6 inch dado, or do you think it will handle an 8 inch setup?
The most common use I can think of would be cross cutting shallow dados for shelves etc.
Any advice is much appreciated, as always.
