Forrest WWII 30T Rip Blade

Recommended Posts

Good call.  The WWII 30T is one of my all time favorite blades.  Not only does it give really clean rips efficiently in thick material, but it'll even crosscut reasonably well in a lot of situations.  Obviously it's not going to excel at fine crosscuts and plywood, but it's fine most of the time.

Which tooth configuration did you get? I noticed that they have several configurations on their website.

I got the 20T version of this about 2 weeks ago.  It cuts great - no burning even in thick hardwoods.  Finished surface is ok, not great, probably needs a swipe over the jointer before glue-up. 

I'll actually stop and change to this blade if I'm going to be doing a lot of ripping - and that's saying something!

I'm a Forrest blade user too.Worth every penny I've spent.

My saw shown in my profile pic has a 12 inch woodworker 2 with special grind and a 3/4 inch arbor hole.Its the nicest blade I've ever used.

If I keep it clean and don't damage it doing something stupid it's should stay on the saw for a long time.

No more red blades for me.
