From reviews on this site of the Haltbar Sagen blades, I thought I might try out some for my Grizzly G0513.I ordered two 1/2” 101 Flexback series, 131.5” long, 4 TPI, and I also ordered two of their 201 Hardback series, a 1/2” 4TPI and a 3/8” 6TPI. I completed the order online, and in three days, two boxes appeared on my front porch, each containing one 201 series Haltbar, with the proper label on the side of the box describing the model, length, width, and TPI. In...

Thin kerf stacked dado... they don't have to start at 1/4"?

I like this site so far, so why not try my hand at a review… As you can see from the picture I have used this blade…for a little more than 2 years. Every thing that can be said about forrest blades applies here. Expensive…Yes, I paid $340. Precision machining… Yes, the brazing is very, dare i say, sexy. Quality…Yes Top level c-4 superhard carbide. Flat bottoms and square walls. VERY. Durable, havn’t sharpened it yet, and don’t plan to ...

CMT 10, 50 Tooth PTFE coating

CMT 10, 50 Tooth PTFE coating

07-30-2012 07:05 PM by Tennessee | 20 comments »

Bought this to try and breathe a little life in my old Ryobi BT3000 table saw. It worked flawlessly, and the PTFE is by far and away the best coating I have found to date on a blade. The “Luxembourg Cerametal” carbide tips are some of the best I’ve ever cut with, both cross and rip. Fancy name for really sharp fine grained carbide… When I upgraded to my Rigid R4512, I put this blade on right away, and for the first time felt what it was like to have zero resistan...

I finally broke down and purchased a drum sander while Jet was having a 15% off sale. After reading the reviews here and elsewhere I decided to go with the 16-32. I had zero issues with tracking on the belt and leveling the drum was pretty straight forward. I spent about 2 hours setting it up and testing it out. I added a set of locking casters to make it mobile. I usually spend a couple of hours leveling a glue up by hand when making cutting boards. This sander has saved me around 8hrs o...

Forrest Woodworker II 40T #1 Grind (flat)

I picked this up this week and got to use it on a project today. I needed to cut dado’s that were just under 1/4” (the smallest my dado stack will cut) in MDF. I made some test cuts first, and the bottoms were as dead flat as I had hoped. Here is a photo of a double pass to create a 7/32” dado in both sides of a piece of scrap MDF. The kerf was exactly 1/8” for a single pass. I was very pleased with the quality of the cut. This will be my go-to blade for cutt...

Awesome BLADE for the $$

Awesome BLADE for the $$

12-09-2011 01:23 AM by Lance | 16 comments »

Hey guys, this is my first review for any woodworking tool, I’ve been in this hobby since April of this year. When it comes to being satisfied with any product I’m hard to please, I like quality for my dollar so this is a strict and honest review. I have the Ridgid R4512 TS and I’ve been using the original blade since day one, never cleaned it, never sharpened it either, it’s been preforming the same since day one. I’ve used the original blade to build less th...

Plywood Blade cuts cleanly

Plywood Blade cuts cleanly

12-04-2011 12:23 AM by HamS | 7 comments »

I installed this blade and made a few test cuts on my saw before starting to cut the birch veneer plywood I am making my laundry cabinets from. I posted three photos: the first the before image of a cut made with my existing general purpose blade in the table saw. The good side was nice and clean but there was significant chipping and tearout of the down side. Picture two is the same piece cut with the new blade. There is a small amount of chipping, but it is much improved. The top side ...

Trend 60T Saw Blade / Trend Blade & Bit Cleaner- I LIKE IT!

Trend 60T Saw Blade / Trend Blade & Bit Cleaner- I LIKE IT!

12-03-2011 01:19 AM by StumpyNubs | 7 comments »

I’m an impulse buyer. Throw something on an end cap with a bright sign on it and it’s in my shopping cart faster that you can say “my wife is going to be cheesed off…” So I only had to walk past this deal at Woodcraft before I was ready to pull out my wallet. It’s a 60 tooth, ATB fine finish blade by Trend. The regular price is $60, which is the usual range for a good quality blade. (If you want premium, you have to go over a hundred). But the sale was f...
