Forrest Manufacturing recently announced that the company now offers two metric versions of its deluxe Custom WoodWorker I Blades for use on Festool plunge cut circular saws. These two Custom WoodWorker I Blades are especially suitable for joinery and other specialty applications. They deliver high quality cross-cuts with both hardwoods and softwoods. This eliminates the problem of bottom splintering when cross-cutting ply veneers of oak and birch. The specially engineered clearances on the blade teeth also eliminate side scoring, leaving a smooth-as-sanded surface.
The blades come in two sizes: the Custom WoodWorker I 20 mm bore/160 mm blade featuring 50 teeth, a 3/32” kerf, and suitable for use with Festool’s TS 55 EQ (Model WW16507100), and the Custom Woodworker I 30 mm bore/210 mm blade featuring 60 teeth, a 3/32” kerf, and suitable for use with Festool’s TS 75 EQ (Model WW08Q607100EU).
