Well I read the article in FWW on table saw blades ,and got the "Everlast"
This blade was rated second best to the Forrest WW2 blade which had a very
slight performance edge, but at a cost of almost 50% of the Forrest blade .
Obtaining better performance than the Freud blade I was using, was the
object, and the price was reasonable [I would never consider paying upwards
of $100 for a saw blade]
The blade will not rip as fast as a true rip blade but as a combination
blade in my opinion it is hard to beat, for my purposes [I like to do most x
cuts on the tablesaw]. The end cuts show no tooth marks at all ,in fact the
cut almost has a sheen to it.
I cannot say if the blade is as good orbetter than the Forrest blade as I
have never used one ,I am at the mercy of those who have done comparable
tests ,such as FWW. At this point all I can say, having been a woodworker
for a number of years it is the best blade I have used so far .
The cost around $60
