A dado (US and Canada), housing (UK) or trench (Europe) is a slot or trench cut into the surface of a piece of wood. When viewed in cross-section, a dado has three sides. A dado is cut across, or perpendicular to, the grain and is thus differentiated from a groove which is cut with, or parallel to, the grain.

A dado may be through, meaning that it passes all the way through the surface and its ends are open, or stopped, meaning that one or both of the ends finish before the dado meets the edge of the surface. Dados are often used to fix shelves to a bookcase. Combined with a rebate (rabbet) on an adjoining piece, they are used to make the rebate and dado joint.

DIMAR's dado sets are produced to conform to the strict tolerances of the German codes and are equal to those of the highest quality anywhere in the world.

The Blank: Made from hot-rolled chrome-alloy tool steel, it is tensioned and straightened to give you the best results that only a heavy duty dado can give. Saw body hubs are CNC machine ground and are an integral part of the blank. This will give you stability and better performance during the heaviest jobs. Laser cut bodies (not stamped) ensure accurate and balanced dado for reduced possible vibration.

The Carbide Teeth: The highest grade of carbide is used to give you the longest possible life between sharpening, and yet endure the toughest jobs without cracking. The teeth are longer to give you better chip removal results. The automatic tooth braising is tested by infrared detectors to ensure proper tooth bonding at strength of at least 40 Kg/Sq mm to the dado blank.

The Chippers: Four chippers are provided. Two 1/8", one 1/16", and one 1/4" thick. This configuration will give you less vibration and will save you money each time you sharpen your dado set.

The Dado Case: Made from high quality Aluminum. The foam is moisture resistant.

To Sum it Up: The DIMAR Dado will last longer, save you money, and take on the toughest of jobs.

If your saw machine can stand the pressure, so will the DIMAR Dado.
