Jodi Marks: Yes, my recip saw is one of my favorite power tools. However, I will tell you my biggest complaint with a recip saw are that the blades don’t last very long. This is the Diablo Steel Demon blade.
Let me tell you what all this little bad boy can do, what this little demon can do. This is perfect for cutting really thick metals. It can cut from 3/16 of an inch all the way up to a half-inch.
Well, you may be asking yourself, “OK, Jodi, that’s fine, but what kind of steel or metal is it going to be cutting?” Well, you can cut cast iron—that’s impressive. You can also cut high-strength alloy. You can also cut stainless steel.
And again, my biggest complaint is that these blades wear down very quickly. Not this one. This actually lasts 20 times longer than a standard blade.
So, you know what, I’ll be quite frank with you. It doesn’t really matter what recip saw you have, it’s the blades that count. And this one definitely makes the grade.
