Topic tags/keywords: forrest coupon is running a sale on Forrest WW II saw blades. Regularly 91.02 and you can enter promotional code DECKING2 at checkout and get 15% off making them 77.37. It also is tax free and free shipping. Maybe you have better sources but I thought it was a good deal and wanted to pass it on.


Here is the wording in the email I got from amazon about it.
Use promotional code DECKING2 at checkout and save an additional 15% on the hand tools and accessories below. Hurry—the promotional code expires June 6, 2008!

Thanks jcecil, unfortunately the code doesn’t seem to work for the thin-kerf version. That’s too bad, I have a 1 1/2hp delta contractor table saw and that full-kerf blade might be just too much for it.

Yes unfortunately this is just for a small selection of tools that they considered for building a deck thus the “decking2” code.

Yup, no thin kerf version, oh well.

I tend to agree with skeezics. I use a full kerf WW2 and don’t have any problem cutting on my 1.5 HP Craftsman saw. It tends to be somewhat underpowered anyway but it will cut 8/4 maple w/o any problem. The only time it tends to bog down in on bevel cuts in sheets of plywood. I needed to run some french cleats the other day and it bogged down towards the end when beveling 8’ strips. Other than that the full kerf blade seems to cut well.

Not to put a dampener on the current deal. But 4 weeks ago I bought a WWII from Amazon for $47! I am kicking myself for only ordering 1 at the time. I do have several Freuds and was just giving Forrest a try since it was such a good deal. Still should have ordered several though. They throw out teaser prices out all the time on tools. Most only last less than 24 hours though. I missed out on some link belts that were half off. Had them in the cart, but went to lunch. Came back and the price was already back to normal. :(

Skeez – Scott – A full kerf might work great, but I have a large stack of material already cut to the exact size for use as splines with this kerf width.

Also when I go to a different kerf I have reset my fence zero location. Not a big deal, just takes time and a bunch of test cuts to get it exact.
