CLIFTON, New Jersey, January 24, 2006-Jay Forrest, Vice President of Forrest Manufacturing, announced today that demand for the company's Custom Woodworker II blade continues to grow among professional woodworkers and serious hobbyists. "We're finding that more and more advanced table saw operators choose this excellent blade because of its outstanding versatility and performance. Craftsmen like the choice of grind selections and the option of an ultra thin 5/64" kerf that make the blade ideal for joinery and other specialty appltions."
Forrest went on to explain that the Custom Woodworker II offers several options. "This specialty blade can be used to create square-cut box or dovetail joints, flat bottom grooves, or to speed up feed rates. And you can count on it for high quality rips and cross-cuts with both hardwoods and softwoods."
Eliminates Bottom Splintering and Side Scoring
The Custom Woodworker II has other important advantages. For example, sawblade operators have the option of selecting 20 teeth for fast feed rip or 40 teeth in a choice of profile. In addition, the blade eliminates the problem of bottom splintering when cross-cutting ply veneers of oak and birch. The specially engineered clearances on the blade teeth also do away with side scoring. As a result, the blade leaves a smooth-as-sanded surface. According to Forrest, "Craftsmen repeatedly tell us that the Custom Woodworker II is the finest, quietest, and most precise blade of its type. It saves them time while producing the quality results they need and desire."
Precision Engineering Like all Forrest blades, the Custom Woodworker II is made in the U.S.A. and precision-engineered using the highest quality blend of corrosion-resistant, C-4 micro grain carbide. The blade is then hand-straightened for perfect flatness. The result is exceptional perimeter concentricity and a side runout of +/- .001. This emphasis on quality-combined with proprietary grinding techniques-produces blades that last significantly longer. Forrest also helps consumers maximize the performance of their blade by providing state-of-the-art factory sharpening at very reasonable prices.
Forrest Manufacturing is a family-owned business, founded in 1946. From its inception, the company's mission has been to provide outstanding blades for serious woodworkers.
