MDF and your fine blades - 13 replies
The other day a friend of mine and i got into a discussion about MDF and our Forrest blades. Let me preface this by saying, I love my Forrest blades. I treat them as if they were made of gold. The way they cut is amazing to me, and I take no chances with them. They all go into heavy plastic saw blade totes, and never touch anything but the fi...
