New Miter Saw Blade from Forrestcomments (0) July 10th, 2009 in Blogs
Forrest Manufacturing, makers of the the Chop Master miter saw blade just announced the release of the first blade in their new Signature Line. The new blade has more carbide teeth (90 instead of 80), and the C-4 micrograin carbide teeth (Forrest's go-to choice) are set with a proprietary -5o angle and smaller gullets (the valleys between each tooth) that Forrest claims will combine to produce a quieter cut and better splinter control.
Forrest says this Made-in-USA blade, available in both 10" and 12" sizes, is ideal for delicate, pre-finished, and composite molding. The new Signature Line Chop Master blades are selling for $167 (10") and $179 (12"); each about $35 more than their original Chop Master predecessors.
