Hey guys: I just got in my new WW11 saw blades today from Rockler. Naturally, as soon as I got them all cleaned up, I put one on the RAS, and the other one on the table saw(it’s a 10×40 tooth). Boy you guys were right. These blades cut just like butter, and no tear-out on top or bottom.
I think I’ll order one for the miter saw,also. Heck—I may order a couple more now that I think about it.
You know what they say—two’s better than one any day.

Good idea, Rick. I have them on my saws and have spares to put on when I send out a blade for sharpening.

I thought that there was a new blade out or something when you posted about a woodworker eleven. It’s roman numerals so it’s II, not 11. Those blades really make a difference don’t they.

Hey Scott, do you have a good place to send your blades for sharpning? Do you send them back to Forrest?
I live so far in the “sticks”, I don’t have a place. Will they sharpen other blades as well? Rick.

Rick – I’m not the Scott you asked, but Forrest will sharpen other blades. Ridge Carbide will also sharpen blades.
