Thread: SawStop Blades

    I'll just add you can send your Forrest blade to them for repair cheaply. Like $40-$50 depending on the damage (don't ask why I found that out!)

    Tried that with one of mine. They said they couldn't repair it. Oh well.

    When you have a bad tooth or three, repair is the thing. When you bury a blade in a SawStop's block of aluminum at great force with a sudden stop, it's not just teeth that can be affected. New blade is the way to go and it's still less expensive than a "new finger", as it were, if you have an SS for the reason of additional safety.

    Fifty bucks doesn’t sound like a cheap repair to me. Specially when the blade cost roughly double that.

    The blade that came with my PCS is a 40 tooth combination blade.

    I won't post this answer from Tony Ferrato, the technical sales and service representative at Forrest Manufacturing Co as reported in Fine Woodworking, but I will include the link:

    Nice to at least see the initial part of the answer...the majority is behind a paywall. I'd still be, shall we say, itchy about repairing a blade that's been "sawstopped" but it's nice to know it's deemed possible.
