A Freudian Slip?

There has been some discussion around woodworking circles about the availability of Freud blades (and router bits etc), as one of the importers have decided to not bring them into Australia any longer.

However, as I have discovered, despite it being reported that ‘the’ importer has stopped importing, they were not the sole importer, and the blades are still readily available through the Woodman Group, which includes one of my typical haunts in Melbourne (who kindly supplied the Freuds I have been testing in the Battle of the Blades) – The Woodworking Warehouse.

So, for example, the blade that has really impressed me to date (being the Freud LU2B 0700 Crosscut Blade)

is still being imported and sold in Australia.

  1. Do you have any more Freud blades in your test line up such as the fusion combo and glue line rip?

  2. If you have a look under “Reviews” then “Battle of the Blades”, you can see all the ones I have lined up so far. Unfortunately I haven’t found a supplier (as yet) who wants to include either the Fusion Combo or a Glue Line Rip, although both would be very interesting to test.
