Sawsall Blades


I was in Costco today. They had a blister pack package of 20 Craftsman branded bimetal sawsall blades and a plastic case for about $20.00 plus tax.

Can't beat $1 a blade- no matter what brand. Are Craftsman blades good?

No clue but at $1.00 a blade I'm going to take a chance.
My local hardware wanted $12.00 for one 12" blade.
HD wanted about $12.00 for 5.
I see Costco now has several Craftsman branded products in stock.

I have had the best luck with Lennox blades over the years. The longer ones will bend 90 degrees without breaking and last along time. When they finally do get a bit dull, I use em for cutting plaster until the teeth wear off.

Good tip,Joe---I dropped a bundle yesterday on two packs of Milwaukee blades---Like Firehawk--I find Milwaukee and Lennox to be the cheapest in the long run----

But at a buck a blade? I'll give them a shot---

I also buy Lenox most of the time.
I even lost a lottery one time on how long it took to cut a unibody car in half with a Lenox blade.
Less then 5 min. was the correct answer.

I'm a Lennox fan as well, although my local Menards has some cheapos that I may try. I'm sure I'll regret it, but they have a brand called MaxBuilt or something that they are almost giving away compared to some of the higher priced brands.

For only $20, you will almost certainly get your money out of them.

I'm done with Sears and Craftsman.
Free? OK I'll use 'em but I won't pay a penny.

As for blades and bits... Lenox and Bosch.
