I have the WW 2 Forrest blade on my TS. I had to cut a couple of birch plywood shelves and wanted to do a good job of it, so I ended getting a zero clearance insert. The combination of the blade and the insert, gave me a good splitter-free cut.

I have read many reviews on the web and have seen as many discussions on LJ with saw blade recommendations. I don’t think you can go too far afield with either the Freud or the Forrest. The Freud combination blades may be more reasonably priced and may be as good.

You may want to do a LJ search for discussions. Rockler, sawmillcreek and fine woodworking have articles/reviews of saw blades as well.

Good luck finding the right blade.
