I was about to buy a second crosscut/finish blade and I’ve been reading all the good reviews of the Forrest WWII (Ken D's post from 3/5/03 and other posts). I currently use a Freud/Diablo 80 tooth ATB blade (D1080X) that I picked up at HD for $58. I use that blade for all my finish cuts on sheet goods and hardwood (crosscuts) and I always get clean cuts. I’ve used it for a year and I’m just having it sharpened for the first time. My sharpening service said to stick with Freud and I know a couple of cabinet shops that use Freud as well. I was about to pick up another one of those but now I have some questions: Are the Forrest blades that much better? Anyone have experience with a Forrest WWII and an 80 tooth Freud? I use separate rip and crosscut blades now so should I bother with a combo blade? Thanks in advance…
