American Saw & Manufacturing Co H-1 Blade?


I know this isn't what you are asking about, but Lenox makes a jab saw handle made to take sawzall blades. You can also find short 3" sawzall blades to use with it.

I'm very spoiled with this tool. The blade is short and stubby and thick enough that you can use it to "pre-drill" wallboard and paneling simply by twisting the fine point (if necessary). A new blade will cut 1/4 inch plywood with ease. This is not one of those cheap tools you see everywhere. It weighs about half a pound and has been used heavily for 40+ years.

this is actually a compass saw, which is a heavy duty keyhole saw. anyway, it looks like the blade you need is the same as the current Klien Magic Slot blade. hope it works out for you

Nice find! OnThePike, you owe this guy a beer for that find

BE AWARE:

The blade linked above is actually the 12" model. You most likely want this model: http://www.acetoolonline.com/Klein-7...-p/kle-709.htm

The pictures are all the same. Here is the page with all the blades: http://www.acetoolonline.com/Klein-S...ades-s/993.htm

I have not seen any plaster with wood lath here in West LA for at least 10 years. It is still there on pre WW2 houses but After WW2 wood lath was replaced by button board which was a type of gypsum board that had round holes to help key in the plaster brown coat.

For specialty blades for the Fein Multimaster (or Rockwell Sonicrafter) the best source I have found is Multiblades

THANKS! Almost nobody ever posts a follow-up, and we are left to wonder how they made out. Not perfect, but looks pretty good from here!

OTP, Don't try it on plaster, it will surely dull the teeth. Thanks anyway, but I don't want to see your new blade dull.

My take on Ace Online, is that they don't stock anything unless they are running a special on overstock merchandise. I got an Ace flyer in June of 2009 on a 70% OFF on a SDS Metabo Drill. The Drill had such a weird design that nobody in the trades was going to show up on a job site with one so Metabo sold their remaining inventory for this model to Ace for clearance.
Metabo P'7911 Porsche Design Multihammer | Free Shipping | AceTool.com

Ace sent me a follow up e-mail on the Klein, 4 hours after I placed the order
Quote:
From ACE: The items are currently on order with Klein (due into stock in about a week to a week and a half) and will ship out to you the same day we get them into stock. If you should have any questions or need any further assistance, please feel free to contact me. Thanks again for your order and for shopping www.acetoolonline.com.

I used the Ace Tool link since the OP was in Long Island, I figured maybe he was close by. While they do stock quite a bit of inventory, I know for a fact they love to drop ship as well (why not, what's better than making a profit on something you never touch). That's probably why their shipping rates are so high, since a lot of manufacturers charge a fee to their dealers to dropship.

If you are further out on the Island, you might want to check out Dynamite tool in Bohemia, or Sunrise Tools in the same area. Either of those may carry klien

When I get my Klein order from ACE Tool I will check the return address. I'll post the result as it will be of interest if it is not from the ACE Tool site at Wantagh on Long Island NY.

When I got the Metabo SDS Drill last year from Ace Tool I did not look for a return address. It came with Free Shipping, but then it may have been shipped from anywhere.

One good thing about the Ace Tool Site is that I had a fast and accurate response when I had a technical question about the second Metabo chuck for non-SDS bits. Within six seconds of calling the toll free number I was talking to a Tech who seemed to be very familiar with Metabo and who gave me a fast and accurate answer.
