Forrest 8" 2-pc Box Joint Blade Set
Forrest's matched two piece box joint blade set is a great solution if you cut a lot of smaller box joints with the INCRA I-Box. These premium blades are American-made, just like all Forrest products.
The box joint blade set's 1/4" and 3/8" cutting widths give up some of the overall versatility of a stack dado as a general woodworking tool, but the upside is that the set is much less expensive than a comparable dado set.
In addition to a lower cost, the teeth on these blades also have a flat-top grind so they cut flatter bottoms and more perfectly square corners than even the best dado sets. The box joint blade set will also feed faster and with less noise than a similarly-sized router bit.
The two 8" blades in the set are mirror images of one another when viewed from the operator's position, with their carbide tips slightly offset on each of the blades' bodies - one blade offset to the left, the other blade offset to the right. This allows the blades to be reversed side to side to create either a 1/4" or 3/8" cutting width (the blades must be used together and aren't designed to be used individually).
Hi-accuracy construction produces exceptionally flat-bottomed grooves
Twin 24T blades feature flat-top ground teeth for cutting perfectly flat bottom box joints and grooves cut parallel to the grain
Double-hard, 40% stronger C-4 carbide will give up to 300% longer life between sharpenings
5/8" bore fits most 10" table saws
Compatibility: Please note that the saw will require a throat plate with an opening appropriate for a wide cutter.
Made in USA.
Forrest 8" Dado King Stacking Dad Set w/Case
The American-made Forrest Dado King is consistently rated as the best stacking dado set sold today because of its incredible sharpness, long life, and outstanding performance in challenging materials like veneered plywood and melamine.
This is an exceptionally versatile cutting tool for making box joints with the INCRA I-Box because the variable cutting width allows a lot of flexibility for board widths in your project.
Box joints aside, every shop should have a good quality stacking dado, and you'll understand why as soon as you start a project that requires a lot of grooving or rabbeting: A dado set in a table saw will feed much faster and with far less noise than a similarly-sized router bit, plus the fine adjustment available with the included shims provides greater control. A saw's arbor can also be tilted, allowing angled joints not possible with other methods.
1/4" to 29/32" width range, includes fine adjustment shims
Cuts great either across or with the grain, negative hook on all of the cutters produces incredibly clean cuts in difficult materials
Hi-accuracy construction produces exceptionally flat-bottomed grooves
24T outer blades with 4-wing chippers, including a 3/32" chipper for working with undersize plywood
Double-hard, 40% stronger C-4 carbide will give up to 300% longer life between sharpenings
5/8" bore fits most 10" table saws
Includes a Blade Runner carrying case to protect your investment
Compatibility: Please note that the saw's arbor must be long enough to accommodate the desired stack of cutters (the arbor on some portable saws can be too short), and the saw will require a throat plate with an opening appropriate for a wide cutter.
