Forrest Manufacturing Introduces It's New Ply Veneer Worker (PVW) Blade

The 10"-diameter, 70--tooth blade is designed for cutting plywood and plywood veneers. It also provides finish-quality cross cuts on hard wood laminated sheet products and natural wood of all types.

CLIFTON, New Jersey, - Vice President Jay Forrest announced today that Forrest Manufacturing has responded to customer requests by developing a new blade designed specifically for providing rip and cross cuts of two-sided plywood, whether finished or unfinished. In discussing this new product, Mr. Forrest said, "Our Ply Veneer Worker (PVW) is a commercial-quality blade that excels on table saws, although it can also be used on radial arm saws. This new blade features the same high-precision technology as our popular Woodworker II blade. As a result, it does an outstanding job of ripping and cross cutting plywood and plywood veneers. But that's not all. The PVW also provides finish-quality cross cuts on hardwood laminated sheet products, as well as cross cuts on natural wood of all types. So it is well suited for use in making cabinets, bookshelves, and furniture. However, the blade is intended strictly for plywood, plywood veneers, and solid woods. It is not designed for cutting materials such as plastic, laminates, or melamine."

Flawless Cuts with No Splintering

The Ply Veneer Worker (PVW) features a 10º hook, 70 teeth, and a high alternate top bevel grind. Because it is designed for cutting wood products only, it has a faster feed rate than the popular Forrest Duraline Hi-A/T blade that is used for plys, veneers, and low-pressure laminates. The PVW also costs $23 less. In further elaborating on the new blade, Mr. Forrest said, "Woodworkers and serious hobbyists will find that the Ply Veneer Worker is an exceptional blade that provides flawless cuts without splintering or fuzz and without chip-outs on either the top or bottom surfaces. No scoring blade is needed. We've custom-engineered the PVW and carefully tested it. So customers can count on it for vibration-free performance and long life. To the best of our knowledge, there is no comparable product available today."

At the present time, the Ply Veneer Worker is available only in a 10"-diameter blade. The model PVW10707125 features a standard 1/8" kerf. The model PVW10707100 features a thin kerf. Both have a list price of $144. Forrest is planning to eventually make the blade available in other sizes, ranging from 7 ½" to 14" diameters.

Forrest saw blades, including the new PVW, are made from corrosion-resistant, super-strong C-4 micrograin carbide. As a result, they have up to a 300% longer life between sharpenings, compared to other carbide blades. In addition, all Forrest blades are hand straightened to ensure perfect flatness. They also have exceptional perimeter concentricity and side runout of +/- .001. But that's not all. Forrest offers state-of-the-art sharpening of all brands of carbide-tipped circular saw blades at a very reasonable cost.
