I just bought the Freud LU79r010 plywood blade for my tablesaw. Loved it so much I bought the Freud LU79r070 for my circular saw. No chipout from either blade. And, I’ve never had any red bleed off on my wood. I have a Forrest WWII that I’m not impressed with at all. The first WWII I got left edges that looked rough sawn. Sent it back and they replaced it with one that cut smoother but still not up to snuff. It was difficult to push the wood through the blade. Sent it back for sharpening and they finally got it right. Sort of. There was no charge for what ever it was they did. It still is not the equal of the Saw Stop blade that came with my saw or my Freud LU83r010. I hate to say that about an American made product but I have not been impressed with my experiences with Forrest blades. I guess it’s like anything out there. Some love one thing and others something else.
