DeWalt 8″ Stacked Dado Set

As a hobbyist woodworker I like for my equipment and tools to be accurate, reliable, and easy to use.  When building drawers and cabinets a good dado set is indispensable.  In March of 2016, I purchased the DeWalt 8” Stacked Dado Set, Model DW7670 from Wood Craft in Parkersburg, West Virginia.  Retail price was $149.99.…
