make your own multimaster blades redux
After the Jersey Hash fest…
Cornedbeef hash that is
Shep pulled out his multimaster to show doncando… which led me to thinking about finally replacing a small chunck of oak floor. I did not want to use my 30 dollar ecut and find a cut nail, so off to the despot I go…
The 8$ buck brothers miter saw has tiny teeth that almost seem bidirectional,
I tapped a hole using a step drill bit (unibit)
found 3/8″ to be almost just right, and then I used a dremel to section off the new blade from the saw. I tried a nibbler but the steel was too hard.
I cranked the washer down hard, and it worked quite well. Found a nail on my second plunge!
I am going to use either the cutoff wheel in my grinder or roto zip on the next try…
but all in all, a major success.
The correct drill bit size would be 10 mm. 3/8" =9.52 mm. I have measured the Multimaster to 9,97 mm. A carbide drill bit in a drill press would do the trick even if the blade is hardened.
Absolutely - I've got the word out here to not throw away any snapped pull saw blades. My metal worker buddy has a step shear for the cross cuts and I punched the holes with the drill press. Made a variety of sizes, and have gone to these 'beaters' many, many times. I have a Japanese 'feather' file for touching up the good ones, too.
Hi there why go through all that work when you simply spot weld new blades on the old mounts. I purchase a replacement HSS Japenese saw blade from Lee valley #60T57.02 and using a Zip disc on a hand grind cut them into sections from the blade that I need. I purchased the spot welder from EBay for $60.
That sounds great, too. I haven't spent anything on blades or a welder (though I bet I could get my friend to whip something out), and I haven't worn through any blades to have their mounts available - the offset would be nice, though.
I wonder what Fein would say if I asked for some empties to make my own blades with...
Anyone know of a blade to cut up suitable for metal cutting?
I haven't had any luck locating a U.S. source for a 10mm drill bit. Has anyone a source that they can recommend?
Now that I have a new multimaster, I'm determined to make up a batch of multimaster blades.
McMaster-Carr. They got any drill size you want.

Of course! I should have thought of them. That's where I got my cast-iron, machined pulleys when my new bandsaw wouldn't stay on the floor.
