What is a wobble blade?

Wobble dado blades are a low-cost compromise to the more expensive but vastly more effective stacked dado sets. The wobble dado uses a single blade, mounted on a multi-piece hub that can be adjusted to vary the angle at which that blade is to the arbor shaft. This angle regulates with width of the dado cut.

Beside this, why does my circular saw blade wobble?

The most common cause of wobble like this is that the bearings or bushings are worn out. These are the things that hold the main shaft in place. They should be a close fit to the shaft, and the shaft rotates within them. When they are worn out, there is too much room and the shaft flops around or wobbles.

Likewise, what is the purpose of a dado blade? A dado set or dado blade is a type of circular saw blade, usually used with a table saw or radial arm saw, which is used to cut dadoes or grooves in woodworking. As the dado set spins, the two outside blades cut the dado walls and the chippers remove the waste material in between and smooth the bottom of the dado.

Also question is, why are dado blades illegal?

As already mentioned dado blades are illegal on UK (EU) table saws because in order to use them the guard and riving knife have to be removed, and is therefore unsafe. This is not the case in the USA. Because of this, all UK or european table saws are deliberatley fitted with short arbors to prevent their use.

Can you use a dado blade on a circular saw?

These are cut using a dado blade on a table saw which removes the wood to create the channel. A router can be used to cut dadoes, but a circular saw can also be just as effective. You'll need to make two custom fences that have the width of the edge of the circular saw shoe to the blade built into it.
