Thread: Router or Dado blade, the verdict

    Router or Dado blade, the verdict

    I'm the one that posted the original question of router versus dado blade for particle board. Thanks for all the replies. The one reply I took to heart was the one that said particle board is hard on router bits. So I used my dado blade with excellent results. The blade is a Craftsman carbide tipped oscillating dado (so you dial the width in) that I bought eons ago. It worked great. Now to assembling the whole shebang. What fun dealing with particle board that weighs a ton.

    Glad you found a method that works for you. What is a oscillating dado blade? Is it the same as a wobble blade?

    I think so, it's one blade and as it rotates it cuts the width that I set it for. I bought it at Sears for $50, that shows you how long ago that was, I think it was in the 70s. It works great, but not as well as a router bit. But for particle board it's good enough.
