RE: Best TS Blade.

We have a lot of common blades then we got a WW-II. It is the only quality blade we have and we love it. So much so that we bought a second one just to have on hand, then a 12" for the miter saw and the dado set.
We're completely satisfied with these blades and their sharpening service.
There may be others just as good, but we're as happy as we can be with these. We make custom kitchen and rec. room cabinets and restore classic mahogany boats. The blades serve us well.

the ones that think this is an ok blade, but certainly not the best. For the best, get a fine crosscut blade and a good rip blade. I think I have gone off the 'combo' design.

Your saw set up may be not as good as it should be. I would compare my 2 WWII blades cutting results with any cross cut or rip blade. Cross cuts come out burnished and rips reflect.

I just bought a thin kerf WWII combo blade to replace a regular kerf Ridge Carbide, and the WWII does an even better job than the RC, and the RC was really, really good.
I have the Ridgid TS3100 portable table saw, and the difference between the two may simply be that the saw works better with a thin kerf blade. I don't know. However, the WWII seems to burn the wood less
It's a great blade.

been to my type of comment, but I can assure you that I have double checked my setup, and I do not believe it is my saw. Could be wrong, but I get better results with other blades.

And then because nothing is perfect, maybe you got a bad Forrest blade. I'd give Forrest a call with the problem.

I'LL second that, not that impressed with my WWII as compared to a Freud Combo from Lowes for 35.00. My Powermatic PM2000 was dialed in using a dial indicator setup on the miter slot to blade,dial mag base to arbor, miter slot to fence with the prescribed -.005" toe out on the trailing edge of the fence. Maybe Amazon is selling seconds!
