This was the "Forrest Duraline" thread, but it morphed into "how to avoid chipping when crosscutting oak ply".
Anyone have experience with this blade?
Forrest Duraline Blade Hi-A/T 10" x 80 Tooth
I have a Woodworker II that I love, but I'm cutting up some $120 a sheet plywood. The WWII does a very good job on veneers for a combo blade, but there is some minor chipping. Normally I would not mind too much if it's really minor, but this is for a customer and the ply will be edged in solid oak. I really don't want to have any chips ruining that mating edge.
If I chip out the veneer and have to buy another sheet I will have nearly covered the cost of the blade and have nothng to show for it but scrap.
What say yee older and wiser (well, maybe just wiser) woodworkers?
