Hi David and welcome to the forum. In answer to your question I think the reply would have to be "use a router" for several reasons. Dado sets can be extremely dangerous and have to be used unguarded, all of the suppliers that I have seen say that they are not suitable for machines that employ electronic braking on the spindle. All machines supplied in the EU must have electronic braking as I understand it (or at least that is what my suppliers in work have told me). I went down this route many years ago having watched Norm Abram on the goggle box but now find that my router and a few cutters are much safer and more controllable than a dado set would be. The choice obviously is yours in a hobby situation but just remember that when you switch off the machine the blade will be trying to undo itself and a dado set will have much more torque than a single blade (flywheel effect).
