Forrestblades

The newest blade from Forrest Manufacturing is the 10″ Ply Veneer Worker with 70 Teeth, and is specifically designed to work with man-made materials in the plywood, vinyl clad, composite and veneer arena. Each tip is made from super hard, long life micro-grain carbide, and the ATB (35° Alternate Top Bevel) produces the smoothest cut ever seen in a hand-straightened saw blade. The 10° face hook allows for easier feed on table saws, and sides are chamfered to eliminate heat buildup and chip clearing. This thin (3/32″) kerf blade is 10″ in diameter and has a 5/8″ arbor. This blade is also available in standard (1/8″) kerf. For use on table saws and saws with slides. Made in the USA.

    Improve the quality of the cut.

    This is the missing support needed with any thin kerf blade. It's use,should result in an improvement in the quality of cut you get on any saw. But it may be too wide for a cut of 2 1/2" or more.

    ELEMINATES BLADE VIBRATION

    IT DOES EXACTLY WHAT IT WAS DESIGNED TO DO, DAMPEN VIBRATION. IF YOU ARE CUTTING THICKER STOCK WITH A ZERO CLEARANCE INSERT, YOU MAY HAVE A PROBLEM WITH BLADE HEIGHT DEPENDING ON THE THICKNESS OF THE STOCK, HOWEVER, MOST PEOPLE ARE NOT GOING TO BE RIPPING 3+ INCH STOCK AS A STEADY DIET. I WOULD RECOMMEND THE 4" FOR A 10" BLADE.
