Strongsville, OH – Northeast Ohio tool manufacturer, Woodpeckers, recently launched the Dado Nut. If you’ve tried to put a full 3/4″ dado stack on your SawStop Table Saw, you know the problem; there’s simply not enough shaft to install both the arbor washer and the arbor nut. The engineers at Woodpeckers have developed a clever solution; a combination arbor nut and washer that doesn’t take up any more room than the original nut by itself. Dado Nut merges the arbor washer and arbor nut into one integrated unit. The threads extend almost completely through the arbor washer, but they’re not one piece. The separate nut spins independently within the washer, retained by a circlip. Now you have the stability of a carefully machined arbor washer AND full thread engagement of the arbor nut when using a full dado stack. At this time, Dado Nut is only available for SawStop Table Saws, but other threads may be released in the future.
Woodpeckers has focused on the needs of hobbyist woodworkers since 1988 and began manufacturing the majority of their offerings in 1993. The company makes precision layout tools, router tables and lifts, innovative clamping tools, carbide-tipped woodturning tools, carbide router bits, carbide-tipped saw blades and a wide variety of helpful shop products.
