Flat ,Stiff and True

Review Summary

I've used this blade stiffener to reduce vibration in my saw blade, not so much from the blade itself, but from my table saw . I mostly use this with a Forrest Woodworker II thin kerf blade and it does help improve the quality of the cut, especially if your saw has any vibration issues. The only time I remove this from the table saw is when I need to make a deep cut where this would limit the depth I need.
This stiffener may seem a bit pricey but I can count on it being absolutely flat, stiff and true, which is why we buy these. These can be purchased with a 5/8" or 1" arbor hole.
