saw blades

Treated myself to Bosch 36 tooth 160mm TC tipped. Previously only had a 12 tooth for my hand circular saw.

The Tungsten Carbide lasts many, many times longer than ordinary steel.

Right now looking for TC kitchen knives. Found Richardson of Sheffied do 'Fusion' range but would like to see a few more.

Saw blades

In Fine Woodworking issue #155 there was a review of 10" combination saw blades. Their conclusions were that the Forrest was the best.

Then they said:
"The sawblades from Everlast, Jesada and U.S. Saw (the newest blade from Oldham) cut almost as well as the Forrest, getting ratings of very good and excellant. When price factored in, Everlast enjoys some added appeal in that it sells for about 40% less than the Forrest blade."

I have been using their (Everlast) blades for about 20 years and have had great success with them.

P.S. The local sharpeners can sharpen them without sending them back to the factory.
