Use a standard 1/8" blade, but make two passes that overlap by 1/16".

  • @Tester101, move the fence (if ripping a groove) or workpiece (if crosscutting a dado) only 1/16" for the second pass. Commented Aug 24, 2014 at 12:42

If you plan to cut slots frequently, buy a dado blade. enter image description here
