Customers can choose either a 1/8" or a 3/32" kerf blade for aggressive, scorch-free rips of oak, cherry, and other hardwoods
CLIFTON, New Jersey - Forrest Manufacturing's 20-Tooth, 10" Woodworker II Blades are helping woodworkers and serious hobbyists make fast, accurate rip cuts in hardwoods without leaving burn or scorch marks. According to the company's Vice President, Jay Forrest, "There is a substantial demand for these blades. They are perfect for use on cherry, maple, oak, hickory, mahogany, and various exotics, as well as on other types of hard, dense wood. These circular saw blades consume the wood quickly to provide fast-feed cuts along the grain. They have fewer teeth than other Woodworker II blades. So there is less buildup of heat as the blade cuts through the wood. This substantially reduces the need for sanding because of burning or scorching. Our 20-Tooth, 10" Woodworker II Blades also feature an ATB+R (Alternate Top Bevel + Raker) tooth style. This means every fourth tooth is square to boost the speed of the feed."
Mr. Forrest goes on to say, "Just about every shop with a table saw needs to have one of these aggressive-feed blades for making rip cuts. They're affordably priced. And most important of all, they are excellent for use on hardwoods of every kind, especially those pieces with a thickness of 2" or more."
Precision-Engineered for Superior Performance
The 20-Tooth, 10" Woodworker II Blades are precision-engineered from corrosion-resistant, super-strong C-4 micrograin carbide. This provides up to 300% longer life between sharpenings, compared to other carbide blades. Forrest blades are all hand-straightened to ensure perfect flatness. They also have exceptional perimeter concentricity and side runout of +/- .001. The 20-Tooth, 10" Woodworker II Blades have a 5/8" bore and are available with a standard 1/8" kerf (Catalog #WW10206125) or with an optional 3/32" kerf (Catalog #WW10206100). The 3/32" kerf is best for use on lighter-duty saws and for making thinner cuts. Both blades have a list price of $77. In addition, Forrest offers state-of-the-art factory sharpening at a very reasonable cost. Taking advantage of this service can help maintain blade life and performance. Forrest blades also come with a 30-Day, Money-Back Guarantee.
