Make mine Lenox. I even use their holesaws in the drill press when I need a nice round hole. have drilled out 3 1/2 inch holes in 1/4 plate with a holesaw and slow speed and lots of cutting oil.

|deadbodyman||There might be better ones out there but when I need blades, I need them NOW and I usually end up going to Lowes too. Ive been using the white Lenox blades for years, they've preformed very well if they didn't I wouldn't waste my time with them. I do a LOT of cutting. Burned up a few sawzalls too.|

|jaxx22||Lenox ARC 2x - it is a curved blade and really works well - from Lowes - best that I have found in years of cutting - but the trick is, as tech said, cut at slow speed - jaxx|

|OldTech||Bi metal blades for cutting steel and use the carbon steel blades for wood. I have used off-brand blades with good success most of the time but once in a while you need the best blades made. Cut slow with even pressure and match the tooth count to the material.|

"Its a poor craftsman that blames his tools for poor quality work"
You should make a short video of how your cutting your metal. We could probably help, after we stop laughing.

No HD in 'Nam and they pulled out of China leaving only US, CA and MX stores now.
As far as sentence structure - in today's world and especially the Gen X and millennial generations is not a way to discredit a thread post. Add in texting spelling and punctuation and it's even less definitive.

The poor sentence wording gave him away too

It may have been a spammer - but again, a lot of newbies don't know any better. As far as a DeWalt blade that the 'spammer' recommended - they are one of my last choices and bought at Home Depot/Lowe's and used only when needed and my last Lenox has no teeth left.
DBM - please resurrect some of the old threads. Maybe I would spend some more time here. I'm really tired of the 'what's the best gizmo for my Blivet 8 to make it run fast" and the major reason I check in only occasionally.

|deadbodyman||So what, as a matter of fact I posted in it back then and had something else to add to it. Its still a good thread, now its better. Actually the older threads are better and worth adding on to. someone else might have something useful to add that nobody thought of. I might even spend this weekend raising the dead threads just for something to do and spark some life into this slowly dying site.|

Rule#1) Drill bits and saw blades shouldn't make sparks when in use.

|matt167||I have only bent the Lenox gold, because I have them in 9". Cutting thru the cab blind, hit inner supports a lot, and the blades do bend. But they hold the best edge and just keep going. Most of mine were damaged beyond usability only because they were bent beyond usability... The Kobalts seem to be last better than I thought. I ran out of new blades. Went thru the kobalts destined for the trash, straightened some that still had an edge, and with a decent amount of oil, finished my cutting|
