In googling this group, your name shows up consistently as a TS2000
owner, and wanted to ask you about the tooth configuration on that one.
I do my tenons on the table saw using the Nibble method on a cross-cut
sled, but my blade is a Forrest WWII, which has an ATB tooth
configuration. As a result, my tenons come off the saw with a
corrugated effect and need an inordinate amount of clean-up with hand
planes and files. (Yeah, my planing technique isn't *quite*
but it's getting better everyday...)
As I understand it, the TS2000 has a flat-topped configuration...just
what I'm looking for in a tenoning blade. But how does it perform as a
combination blade--particularly in cross-cutting?
I called Forrest to inquire about having my teeth reground to
flat-topped, and their tech advised me that the blade should then be
used only for ripping...that it would leave a splintery cross-cut.
TIA for any thoughts.
