Hey everybody, I just had to gloat a little. I just won an ebay auction on a Forrest 10”, 40 tooth, thin kerf WWII blade.

This is the Item description listed

Forest 10 Inch Saw Blade for auction….Sharpened ONE time and has not been used since it was sharpened. It is in excellent condition.

40 tooth; 3/32 inch thin kerf table saw blade

I checked with Amazon. The blade sells for $125 – $143. The saw blade stiffener, which is also included, is priced between $28 – $36 on Amazon. This forest blade is the Rolls Royce of wood cutting blades.

I have never got to use one of these but I read awesome things about them, I figured for this price it is a steal and I couldn’t pass it up! I couldn’t figure out why no one was bidding on it until I finally realized that I think that the seller made an error in his listing and spelt Forrest as Forest.

Anyhow. That’s all I have for now, I’ll let you all know how it works when I receive it and replace my Diablo blade.
