Saw Blades or help me spend my money!
 
With my new KF700 coming in the next week or so I need to buy new blades.

I need blades for the following operations:

1. Scoring
2. cutting plywood, I only use Appleply and Baltic Birch
3. Hardwood including exotics like Purple Heart and Wenge.
4. A go to cut up junk blade

To this point I have only had a Bosch table saw so my experience is limited to lesser quality thin kerf blades.

I want to avoid Chinese blades.

Thanks
Mark

Hard to go wrong with Forrest blades. Their Woodworker II is a great all around blade. They have a dedicated plywood blade that works very well.

I also recommend buying two so you can have one in for sharpening and still keep working.

Another note is to send it to back Forest for sharpening, they do an awesome job and you’ll get many, many sharpenings out of it since they just take enough off each time.
