Forrest Manufacturing’s Ultra Thin 080 Woodworker II saw blade has only a .080-inch (5/64) kerf and provides little resistance when cutting. The Ultra Thin 080 Woodworker II is a version of the high-performance Custom Woodworker II blade but on a thinner scale. While the custom blade has a .125-inch (1/8) kerf and a .095 body, the Ultra Thin has a .080-inch (5/64) kerf and a .060 body. It also features an alternate top bevel grind, or ATB, where the points of the carbide-tipped teeth on the blade alternate from one side to the other. The thinness of the blade coupled with the grind allows the teeth to cut with a scoring action, minimizing resistance and tearout, while improving cutting precision.
The Ultra Thin has a 10-inch diameter, 5/8-inch-bore, 40 teeth and a 20-degree positive hook. Custom-size bores are also available.
Like all Forrest blades, the Ultra Thin is precision engineered from corrosion resistant, super-strong C-4 micrograin carbide, giving it up to 300 percent longer life between sharpenings than other carbide blades. Plus, like all Forrest blades, it is hand straightened for perfect flatness and has exceptional perimeter concentricity and side runout of +/- .001.
