Could it be that the Forrest blade was faulty? That is certainly possible.
That'd be my guess. I'd be inclined to send it back for a replacement and
re-run your test with a replacement blade. Forrest Woodworkers usually give
a superb cut.
What are you doing buying the expensive HF blades? The 00529s last
years on my old saur. She's a low-mileage model, though. They're an
extremely good value at $5 a pop.
Buy 'em on sale, usually half price. I wonder how much Forrest would
charge to retip one with their carbide... Just kidding. (sorta)
Fascinating, Deb. Thanks for the test and report. I've had very good
luck with both sizes of HF blades, 7-1/4 and 10". The 12-incher on my
miter saw is working fine, too, but I have a Freud Diablo to replace
it when its day comes. The $10 thin-kerf Freud on my skilsaw has been
a real nice blade, too, replacing the $1.99 HF jobs.
It takes as much energy to wish as to plan.
