Bummer. (17.......)
I started with absolutely nothing. Now, thanks to years of hard work, careful planning, and perseverance, I find I still have most of it left.

I have a set of the old type Dadonator which I'm (not supposed to ;-) use on my SawStop.

I have a Dado King, too.  The Dadonator does a better job.  The Dado King was sharpened by Forrest, the Dadonator by my local service.  Go figure.....

Last I knew Amana bought their higher end blades from Dimar and last I knew Amana didn't make anything themselves, at least not saw blades and braised tooling.

If I remember correctly, Dimar was made by the same company, just didn't have the Amana markup. I bought a Dimar dado set about 35 years ago and that's what I was told. I wouldn't hesitate to buy any Dimar tooling.
I no longer build museums but don't want to change my name. My new job is a lot less stressful. Life is much better.

I make finger joints all the time using the Freud SBOX8 set and it does a great job. Forrest also makes two different sets so one can cut also cut 3/16th and 5 /16th joints. With the Forrest sets I do not see why one couldn't use all 4 blades to cut wider finger joints but since I only have the Freud set I can't say for certain.

Nothing wrong with Dimar, I sell some Whiteside saw blades made by Dimar but they are transparent about it.  High quality and decent prices compared to other premium blades.

 Exactly, if I needed more blades, I'd certainly look at Dimar.
