Yeah, it will be quite a blade. I just want to have some depth.

I can cut 6" deep with the 16" blades on the saw.

12" blades on the saw run at a noticeably slower sfpm with marginal results. I am not sure how a 10" would run. I believe AWWM sold a 12" dado stack for it, back in 1898.

It would be nice to be able to cut some big tenons in some big timber with a big dado stack and the sliding table on the saw.

Just keep them out of the way.

Does a 12" dado stack make you nervous?

You'll need to buy a few extra chippers to get your 2"+ width. I think you might also need a bigger engine for your battleship.

Ya, it would. That's a lot of spinning steel.
