Thin Skin. If you regularly cut high-pressure laminate, melamine, wood veneer, or acrylic sheet, Forrest's Duraline Thin-Rim blades promise reduced chipping and a better quality of cut. Designed for materials up to 3/4 inch thick, they're hand-straightened for less than .001 inch of runout and — according to the manufacturer — can go 50 to 300 percent longer between sharpenings. Prices start at about $175. Forrest, 973/473-5236.
