Saw Blades
The new 1048 Woodworker II from Forrest Mfg. Co. has more teeth and a higher bevel than the original 40-tooth Woodworker II, making it well-suited for cross-cutting everything from soft woods to plywood veneers, the company says. The new 48-tooth Woodworker II has the same 20° face hook as the original 40-tooth Woodworker II, but the points of the teeth have a 25° bevel rather than a 15° bevel. Sharper points allow the blade to cleanly slice through wood fibers as it cuts across the grain and to operate quietly and with less vibration, Forrest adds. The blades are available in a conventional 10-in. diameter with a 1/8-in. kerf and standard 5/8-in. bore, and custom sizes are also available.
