How To Measure and Cut-To-Size Policy | Close it

Cut-To-Size Items are Non-Returnable!

As per our Shipping and Returns Policy, custom cuts and fabricated parts are non-returnable. If you need an over- or undersized item, note it under \"Comments\" during Checkout. Cut-to-size orders have an acceptable cut tolerance of 1/8" (0.125"), so clarify if the adjustment is to be made on the (+) or (-) side of the saw blade. Please review our full return and shipping policy here.

Measure Twice, Cut Once

Since custom cuts and fabricated parts are non-refundable, be very careful while measuring your dimensions. As each cut is nominal, even the slightest miscalculation could be costly.

How to Use a Measuring Tape

Extend your tape measure several inches to find the 1 and 2 inch markers. In between the inch markers you’ll find 16 equally spaced tick marks.

Measure by counting the increments beyond the nearest inch. As the increments decrease, so does the length of the mark. For example, 1/2\" has a bigger mark than 1/4\" which has a bigger mark than 1/8\". The smallest mark follows at 1/16\". Please be aware that some measuring tapes may have even smaller increments.

Features of a Measuring Tape: Sliding End Hook

The sliding end hook is designed for two different types of measurements. An outside measurement (where the hook of the tape hangs over an edge), requires the hook to slide out a bit to account for the thickness of the material. When making an inside measurement (where the hook will push up against a surface), the clip slides in, again, accounting for its thickness. The measuring tape self-adjusts to guarantee an accurate measurement (as far as the tape is concerned).

The NO-MELT carbide-tipped saw blade from Forrest is specifically designed for cutting single or multiple stacked sheets of acrylic, Delrin®, ABS, styrene, PVC, and both high and low-melting nylon plastic without melting the material.

Uniquely designed side clearances on the carbide teeth virtually eliminate any formation of melted burrs or residue buildup on cross-sawn sections of plastic materials. The large number of carbide teeth with a specially modified triple-chip grind (tooth style #11) allows fast feeding of brittle acrylics with no chipping.

Made with DOUBLE-HARD, 40% stronger C4 carbide teeth extends the saw from 50% to 300% longer life between sharpening, reducing maintenance costs. The durable carbide teeth also improve labor efficiency because fewer blades are required to perform even the toughest jobs.

The coding for each product denotes DIAMETER-THICKNESS of TEETH-# TEETH.

Custom blades can also be produced upon request. Call us at 888-768-5759 for more information.
