Tool News - Forrest Ultra Thin Woodworker II Blade


Forrest Manufacturing just announced the Ultra Woodworker II. The Ultra Thin 080 Woodworker II is a version of the high-performance Custom Woodworker II blade but on a thinner scale.  While the custom blade has a .125-inch (1/8") kerf and a .095 body, the Ultra Thin has a .080-inch (5/64") kerf and a .060 body. It also features an alternate top bevel grind, or ATB, where the points of the carbide-tipped teeth on the blade alternate from one side to the other.  The thinness of the blade coupled with the grind allows the teeth to cut with a scoring action, minimizing resistance and tearout, while improving cutting precision.
