Forrest Mfg. has expanded its 48-tooth Woodworker II line with two 12”-diameter blades. Both produce a 1/8” kerf and are available with a 5/8” or 1” bore.
The blades can be used on most brands of table, circular and panel saws, and are particularly adept at making top-quality crosscuts, according to the company. Both blades have a list price of $149. Forrest has also developed a 260mm diameter, 30mm bore blade specifically for Festool’s Kapex KS 120 sliding compound miter saw. The Signature Line Chop Master blade lists for $187.
