I wasn’t even looking for this while browsing CL, but as soon as I saw it I jumped. Looks like it has had some use, but the carbide appears to be in perfect condition, and it’s all complete, including the shims. I ran a few test cuts in birch ply, and there is zero tear out. So do I suck, or what?

1987 date of manufacure. I hope the carbide was good back then

Came in an old, original plywood box.

The carbide was thick.

No tear out in this cut


The slight flaws visible here were already in the plywood before dadoing

That sounds like a pretty good deal, certainly one I wouldn’t pass up given the opportunity. That’s why I have to limit my time looking around for stuff I don’t necessarily need, when you see a deal like this one, you’re obligated to jump on it, even if you already have five of the same thing!

Oh, wow, it looks like one of my photos didn’t make it. Anyhow, I did already have a 6” dado, a Delta. Okay, but not equal to the Forrest.
