Woodpeckers has the Ridge Carbide 40 tooth 10 inch blades on sale for $89 minus $15 at checkout if you use the code TS2000. Thick or thin kerf. I just got the email from woodpecker and the sales usually last about a week. “Expires midnight PST THURSDAY 7/16/09”
If you are considering a premium 10 inch blade this blade is every bit as good as a Forrest WWII.
I’ve posted before that I have a stack of different blades and that over time I migrated to the WWII as my blade of choice. The WWII actually does live up to the hype, it is a top notch blade.
But I heard good things about the TS2000 blades and even at $89 it’s often $20 cheaper than a WWII. I bought one when woodpeckers had a free shipping sale and I figure for $89 I’d give it a go. I have a short stack of Forrest blades but the TS2000 is the blade in my saw right now. It is a great blade and I believe it is every bit the blade the WWII is, and that’s pretty high praise. Big carbide, flat, runs true, sharp, glue ready edges, definitely a premium blade.
