Sanded Quality Edges!

Sanded Quality Edges!

11-09-2011 04:21 AM 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)

11-04-2011 04:54 PM 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

10-29-2011 08:24 PM 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

10-25-2011 06:27 PM 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 ...

Perfect in every way.

This blade is great for cutting box joints and dados. I prefer the 1/4 inch cut, the 3/8 inch is seems not as controlled (it is) but I still stick to 1/4. I tried this in a crosscut and a rip cut, both cuts were excellent. I was just too lazy to change my blade for 4 cuts. I believe that for the price $65 at Amazon it is the best bargain out there.A purist would probably use this set for dados or box joint cutting only, but I a true woodklutz ripped 24” that was as good as you could...

Very good ripping (and crosscutting!) blade

Very good ripping (and crosscutting!) blade

04-27-2011 04:57 PM by dedalo | 22 comments »

Last week I received this saw blade from Rockler. This is my first “professional” blade, until now just used the blades that came with the machines I bought or some cheap blades I could get a local stores. In my last proyect I realized 2 things (using the dewalt blade that came with the saw) 1.- Big quantity of wood consumed by each cut2.- The finish was VERY poor I couldn’t glue the faces without sanding… The things that made me choose this blade: 1.- ...

4 1/2" Blade for PC 314 Trim Saw

4 1/2" Blade for PC 314 Trim Saw

04-02-2011 08:14 AM by pjones46 | 2 comments »

Recently I needed a new blade for my 314 trim saw to cut 1/2 and 3/4 Birch Ply. I did some research and all of my sources implied that I should look for a thin kerf blade. Having tried many top rated blades from manufactures you all know and love I choose the Tenryu PT-11536 4-1/2” Carbide Tipped Saw Blade ( 36 Tooth ATAF Grind – 3/8” Arbor. Power Tool Blade The manufacturer claimed that the blade was “For clean and easy trim work on the Porter Cable trim saw...

When I ordered this blade I wasn’t sure what to expect, other than it being better then the general, all-purpose blade I was using to cut some hard maple on my tablesaw. This was one of the lower priced blades from Rockler wen I was looking at Rip blades and easier to justify to my wife that I needed this blade. I just got the blade today and it worked great! To give you a little background, I have a Craftsman tablesaw that I upgraded with the V poly belt. Nothing special about it, ...

Forrest Woodworker II 10" 48 Tooth Thin Kerf

Forrest Woodworker II 10" 48 Tooth Thin Kerf

02-07-2011 08:14 PM by agallant | 39 comments »

When I bought my saw stop this weekend Woodcraft hooked me up with this blade for only $40. They took the SKU from another blade rang it in and gave me the Forrest Woodworker II 10” 48 Tooth Thin Kerf. I have been wanting to try one of these out for a while, the first thing I noticed like others is the weight of the blade. It is not pretty but very well constructed. With that said I will get to the point of this review. I don’t think this blade is anything special. I don’...
