Are there 10 inch dado sets?

Most dado sets sold at Amazon are 8" or 7" sets – are there any for 10"? Why are larger than 8" dado sets not common?

Alternatively, could you use an 8" dado set in a 10" table saw, if only the arbor hole is suitable? Or, could you use any smaller diameter saw blade in a 10" saw, provided that the arbor fits in?

There 10" dado sets. Larger diameter dado set are heavier. That weight puts more stress on your saw and are harder to handle. As long as the arbor fits and the blade raises enough to meet your needs, a small sets work just as well.
