I received my signature series chop master blade today with the 58 arbor. When I removed it from the packaging it felt a little heavy so I weighed it. It was 10.5 oz heavier than the blade I removed! I then installed it on my DeWalt sliding compound miter saw. First cut I thought I missed the board?? Moved the piece back into the blade path and again the blade dropped through the white oak like it was not there! WOW!! Unbelievable! It's not like I had a cheap blade in the saw before. I was using a $110 90-tooth Freud. Brand new! The difference was night and day!! I think the extra weight of the Forrest was one reason for the improved performance.
Forrest blades never cease to amaze me. Everytime I install one in any of my saws it performs so much better than the blade it replaced I can't explain it? I think they sprinkle each blade with pixie dust before each shipment? Whatever they do it's working. Keep up the good work Forrest. You have a customer for life with me!
