I use an El Cheap O Sears Craftsman saw that I bought off Craigslist ($125.00) several years ago, and I make about 250 boxes, bottom boards, etc., each year. I use an Oshlun 8 inch stacked dado blade. I leave the dado set up on this saw. I have only had it off once in the past 10 years, and that was to sharpen the blades. I made a sled, using instructions I got from some book several years ago. Now days there are several good instructional videos and data on box joints on the internet.

I am attaching a photo of the sled that I use. It runs in the miter groove of the saw table.
