All of mine need sharpening but I have an old 410 series and it is great. I also have the glueline rip which is also good. These are at 20 years old and I have never used a Forest so cannot actually compare. Do not worry too much about the saw blades since I mostly turn so I can turn away saw marks. Yes I am a baaad boy and should have sharpened them years ago.

Like Stick said it's the 400 series, a Freud F410. I have one that's probably 20 years old, along with a WWII (that's not quite that old) and I can't tell the difference between them as far as cutting performance goes.

Should have let me know sooner, Gene I would have taken them off your hands, I love my red blades. But then again I don't do as fine of work as you do.

Those rifle cases you build are top shelf.

Herb, you're full of beans. Your work is outstanding. 

As to the blades, No doubt Freud makes some good blades. They just don't cut... ON MY SHOPSMITH... as well as the Tenryus do.

Hmmmmmmmm, I went looking for the 410 series just to compare prices.  I couldn't find the 410 available anywhere . The 412 is still available.  Actually, the only 40 tooth combo Freud blades I found were thin kerf blades. Am I missing something ?

Thanks Herb. The price comparison is ;  Freud $87.99, Forrest $188.95. Is one Forrest blade worth more than 2 Freud blades.I compared the prices on Amazon.

Thanks all.  The Forest blade I have now wasn't the quality I was expecting.  I want to give Freud a try.

Maybe it needs a trip to the saw shop,might be $15.00 well spent and sane you a bunch on a new blade.

Who We Are

Operation Ward 57 Challenge Coin Display Project

We are a woodworking community with an emphasis on sharing and learning the skilled craft of woodworking and all of its related disciplines. Our community is open to everyone who wishes to join us. We support our American veterans and active duty, being a veteran is not a prerequisite to join. Join us now!

Objective

Air Force Command Center Plaque

Of course just like most online woodworking communities we are centralized in the arts, crafts, and trades that are woodworking. But, we have another focus in our Patriot Woodworker community, we are the only woodworking community that was founded on our care and concern for our disabled veterans.

Volunteer

Patriot Woodworker Volunteers

The Patriot Woodworkers are an all volunteer community, from the staff and hosts who run our online woodworking community to the members who frequent our forums, you'll find volunteers in all of us. We are not on a payroll, unless you consider the spiritual rewards gained from volunteering, as compensation.

Education

Logging

One of the many projects we are working on is a wiki for our online community. A wiki is a great way for woodworkers and enthusiasts to share their knowledge to others, and to impart their knowledge for others to learn from, and utilize as well for their own benefit. We hope you'll consider being a wiki contributor.
