Black and Decker KS890ECN saw - blades?


When my parents moved back to Denmark I kept everything that was plug-in since they wouldn't be able to use it due to 220.

One of the items is a saw. Black and Decker KS890ECN. It's a wacky looking thing - almost like a cross between a jigsaw and zawsall.

I can't find blades anywhere - Black and Decker's website is USELESS with a capital U and all my google searches point me to Amazon in the UK

Any other places that would be a good source for blades?

pretty sure that tool was a fancy gadget type design that they came out with and flopped... try their website and get the owners manuel it will say what blades to use

I googled it, just to what it was. Amazon UK, just like you said. The pictures of the blades don't look like anything I've seen. There's a pretty good B&D/DW/PC service center here; but the line's busy.

It looks like a UK Tool

Can you take out the Blade and post a Pic?

They may be similar to the Klein Magic-Slot blades:

Weird - this is definitely bought in the US - it has a 110V plug.

I'll take a pic of the blade later.

I think I found out why it never caught on.

$22 for a blade for a reciprocating saw. Ouch!

GPB is short for: Great Britain Pound' UK

I found more blades but they were all with UK prices e.g.:
http://www.homebase.co.uk/webapp/wcs...tNumber=667657

note on that site
" Unfortunately we cannot deliver to the outlying islands."

Now I'm on the fence.... add in Shipping and after buying blades 3 times you are at 90 bucks. What does a good sawzall cost these days?

I guess I could have them delivered to Denmark and pick them up when I'm there next. Seems like a lot of work just for blades

You can find 10a reciprocating saws of reputable brand name (DeWalt, Milwaukee) on for about $100. Stepping up to the bigger motors will get the price closer to $200.

Any of the 10 amp (that's ~1200W) recips available on this side of the pond sounds like a deal breaker compared to the 400W scorpion.

I'd get rid of it and buy a sawsall. Why go through all this every time you need a new blade?
A sawsall is a far more usefull tool and easy to find blades for.
