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)

Forrest Woodworker II 40T #1 Grind (flat)

825 days ago by LeeInAZ | 4 comments »

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 $$

862 days ago 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

867 days ago 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!

868 days ago 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...

Sanded Quality Edges!

Sanded Quality Edges!

892 days ago by Kelen | 7 comments »

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...

Tenryu GM-25540-2 Gold Medal 10" 40T General Purpose Saw Blade (Full kerf)

Tenryu GM-25540-2 Gold Medal 10" 40T General Purpose Saw Blade (Full kerf)

897 days ago by Allanwoodworks | 9 comments »

Wow, is all I can say about this product. I did not see a review for the Full Kerf version her on the site and just wanted to add my two cents. I finally decided that it’s time to upgrade my table saw blade for my 3HP grizzly cabinet saw. For the past year I have been using a Irwin 40 tooth Marathon blade and it did wall, at least that what I thought. I have a Woodmizer saw mill and dry my own lumber, so I try to make everything 8/4 and as large as possible so that I can cut it down to siz...

Clean dados in framing lumber - 1 star off for instructions

Clean dados in framing lumber - 1 star off for instructions

902 days ago by Makai | 6 comments »

Aloha Lumberjocks! This is my first review and my first stacked Dado set. Bought this set for a fencing project with too many cuts for the “move the fence” technique. I visited the local Home Depot, Lowes, Woodcraft, and shopped Amazon. Woodcraft had the Forrest and Freud “dial a dado” sets, but $350 was more than I wanted to spend. I decided to get the Freud SD-208 which had good reviews here on Lumberjocks. Lowes didn’t carry it but Home Depot had somethin...

Onsrud 12 tooth 8" Dado set

Onsrud 12 tooth 8" Dado set

907 days ago by Dallas | 1 comment »

I bought this set, mostly on a whim, since my BT3100 isn’t really built for 8” dado blades. Nevertheless, being addicted to eBay as I am, I was looking at different Dado sets and found this one to be inexpensive, but with my experience with another Onsrud blade thought I would take a chance. When I received the blade set, in a nice wooden box, I just had to try it. I have lately been trying to make some box joints in Chinaberry wood, which is really brittle. My usual method is ...
