    Forrest duraline Hi-AT

    80t, 12, 1 arbor. $95 shipped conus.

    Despite it appearance this blade has very little use, there is quite a bit staining on the plate that will not affect its performance. Appears to be small nicks in 2 of the teeth, see arrows. They are very shallow and in my opinion will be fine until you have the need to resharpen, lots of life left

    I am getting 0.128, i think my mic is out of calibration, its like 25yrs old. So probably 0.125. i will bring the mic to work tomorrow and check is calibration.

    Also reason for selling is I bought a new saw and will no longer need it (even though I never used it...)

    Hi Mark,

    Thanx for going through the effort to actually measure the kerf. For cutting high end plywood, I would use the thicker blade AND a blade stabilizer to absolutely minimize any chance of chip out. I will respectfully pass on this blade, though that is a good deal even if two teeth need replacement.

    No Problem, did you see the pics I posted? virtually no tear out at all if any. "No bottom tear out" blades are a Fallacy, there will always be some. The only way you could lower the chances of tear out any more is with tape or/and a zci, the best way is to buy a saw with a scoring blade. The stiffener will not help with tear out, could help with quality of edge though.

    Additional pics... 1st is bottom crosscut on Birch ply, second is top of cut with grain (different piece)

    Bty, my arbor is out like 0.008, this was measured at the thickness of cut pretty much zero tear out.
