Torture Test: Recip Saw Blades
We’re gearing up for a torture test of demolition reciprocating saw blades, and we need your help.
What we plan to test for:
- How fast, and for how long can each blade cut through layers of plywood, shingles, framing lumber, tar paper, and embedded nails before kicking the bucket.
- The strength of the blade during a flexed cut (cutting the nails under a sole plate, for instance)
- The strength of the blade at the tang (is there anything worse than a blade that breaks off at the collet??)
What we want from you:
1.) What else do you want to know about demolition blades as long as we’re putting them to the test?
2.) Are there any brands you want us to look into that aren’t on the list below?
