Box Joints Made Easy on Your Table Saw...

02-29-2008 09:33 AM by cajunpen | 12 comments »

I love box joints, they are easy to construct, look great and when cut and assembled correctly are as strong a joint as any you can cut. The Freud 8” Box Joint Cutters do one thing and one thing only – they cut perfectly flat box joints on your table saw. You have two size joints that you can cut, either 3/8” or 1/4”. The slot width is determined by the way that you arrange the blades. It all begins with a shop made jig, which attaches to your Miter Gauge. Basic...

THIS BLADE IS A WINNER

THIS BLADE IS A WINNER

Well, at the Seattle Woodworking show ..I watched them slowly push the Forrest blade thru the wood and no burn marks…..I was fascinated …I even came back the next day and watched again ….I finally bought a Chopmaster online from Forrest for my Radial arm saw …I received it and it sat on the saw table for 2 weeks as i was in the middle of other things …I finally installed it on my Craftsman Radial Arm saw and at the first cut ..I was amazed . Yes …oh man &#...

Worth Every Penny

Worth Every Penny

10-03-2009 05:32 AM by Ben | 11 comments »

I am admittedly a cheapskate and almost never buy tools at retail price. I usually spend hours shopping online and reading reviews before making a purchase. However, I don’t mind paying more money upfront to save money down the road. When I first started my hunt for a good sawblade I suffered from a mild case of sticker shock when I read about Forrest blades. That being said, this blade is worth the money; even at retail price. PurchaseI ordered two of these from an online reta...

Sanded Quality Edges!

Sanded Quality Edges!

I’ll keep my review succinct as I know there’s an extensive number of reviews on the Forrest Woodworker II 10-inch 40 tooth available on the internet (168 reviews on Amazon last time I checked). This saw blade is advertised to leave a rip-cut saw edge as smooth as if it had been sanded. I must say, the results are completely in line with those advertised. I’ve ripped several types of wood in varying thicknesses using this blade and the blade has never failed to leave a sm...

Excellent budget blade!

Excellent budget blade!

I just recently bought this blade after reading some of the reviews on the home depot website. I am very satisfied with it and think its an excellent choice for someone on a budget wanting a nice cutting blade. I havent used any of the high end blades such as the forrest woodworker2 but i would be mighty surprised if they cut that much better then this blade does. I tried it on red oak, pine, douglas fir, MDF, and particle board melamine and it left a super smooth cut in all of them with no t...

Another Screaming Bargain of a Saw Blade

Another Screaming Bargain of a Saw Blade

11-06-2009 12:52 AM by knotscott | 21 comments »

This review is as much a deal alert as it is a testimonial. This deal has been on Ebay for several weeks now from Cripe Distribution, and I’m amazed people haven’t scarfed these up like free champagne. If you’re not familiar with it, the Delta 35-7657 was originally the DeWalt DW7657 40T ATB general purpose blade….the same blade that Wood Mag rated favorably against the Forrest WWII a few years back when it was considered a good bargain at $50. It appears to be the sa...

A Solid General Purpose Workhorse At An Affordable Price

A Solid General Purpose Workhorse At An Affordable Price

11-24-2009 10:45 AM by knotscott | 7 comments »

This is a very good blade at a fair price (~ $42). Freud’s Industrial series (denoted by an “L” in the prefix) offers a step up from their entry level Diablo and former TK/Avanti series. The larger teeth are C4 micrograin carbide and are very sharp. They feature an alternating top bevel grind (ATB) and a fairly steep 15 degree hook angle that helps it rip reasonably well. The blade has anti-vibration slots and a Permashield coating. I bought the LU86 as a back up to my Fo...

Even in a bad saw, it makes great cuts

Even in a bad saw, it makes great cuts

When I first used my POS Firestorm circular saw, I had problems with it binding up during rips. Well, I blamed the blade and went to Lowe’s for a replacement. I came across the Freud Avanti blade. Since I didn’t want to switch out blades for different functions, I went for a good combination blade. The blade I picked up isn’t the one in the picture (courtesy of the internet), as mine is a 40T combination blade, but the important thing is the cut. The Avanti blade was ...
