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.
Buying the best
After watching the Forrest saw blade demo's at different woodworking shows, I purchased my first Woodworker II blade. I knew that their saws were probably perfectly set up to get the best results, and only hoped that I could too get those same results. I set my blade up to as close to perfect as I could and have been a devoted fan of Forrest ever since. I've used my blade for everything from Fir and Oak to Ipe (Iron wood) with excellant results. I have used Forrest's blade sharpening services as well and have received excellant service from their shop. I will continue to use Forrest blades in my shop and will introduce their blades to my son's shop as well. With Forrest blades, "You definitely get what you pay for."
Been using Forrest blades for 15 years. They are the industry standard. I tourned the facility, years ago, while bringing Freud & Jessada blades to be sharpened. With complete respect, they contrasted their Woodworker I & II blades to those I brought. I left the facility with a Woodworker I [60 tooth] blade and have not purchased another manufacturer's blade since for my Unisaw or radial-arm saw. Over the years, technology has moved forward and the ability to match the overall quality of Forrest blades has been easier. But, they are competitively priced [premium blades], they sharpen their own blades [and others] and are made in the USA. In my opinion, they continue to be the standard by which others are measured. Their loyalty to producing quality products, wins my loyalty to them.
The blade cuts so smooth that it eliminates a lot of jointing or sanding
