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.
A very specific purpose
The standard WW II blade has some great versatility, but with that raker tooth, some of this is lost. It is a very good blade for cutting box joints and other flat bottom, non-thru cuts.
Woodworker II Should be Woodworker #1
I have been a woodworker for over 20 years and have always used the same brand blades that my Grandfather, who was a woodworker as well used. until I found myself in a pinch when I took these blades to a new sharpener and they were destroyed as he ground all the carbide off them rendering them useless. So I need some new blades right away and went to the local Woodworking supply store and picked up a Woodworker II blade. I was very impressed by how blade riped through tiger maple for our Queen Anne Highboy like nothing first day over 150 bd. ft. of 4/4 maple. It has since cut many more hundred bd. ft. of lumber and is still sharp. It leaves a mirror finish during cross cutting. The one we got has only a .001 run out and is in our opinion a blade for serious woodworkers I will be using Forrest products from now on. Bubbadovetail MI.
Woodworker II #1 grind 10
I bought this #1 grind blade becuase it leaves a cut that is flat on the bottom. I use only Forrest blades and this one is up to their usual high standards. The only minor problem with this blade is that it leaves a slight edge roughness on the bottom of the cut.
Nice specialty blade
A very specialized blade, but when you need a flat bottomed groove 1/8" wide, it can't be beat.
