OIS Bimetal blades


Will an OIS Bimetal blade be tough enough to cut off deck screws?I need to remove deck boards but cannot get access to the heads since they were completly covered during a remodel. A Reciprocating Saw would probably due too much damage. An OIS tool would be the best bet if I can find a blade tough enough.

I think you'll go through a fair number of blades; depends on how many screws you have to cut.
I'd use the recip from underneath if access allows. Not sure what damage you'd do then?

Research looks like you are right, seems deck screws are toughest to cut; however, since the screws are less than 3/4" from the newly installed vinyl flooring inside new addition, I think it will be the way i will be going. There is an American company named Imperial that makes a Titanium blade for ois that looks promising.
I only have about a half dozen screws to cut.
If I mess up new addition, the spouse will have me in the doghouse!
Thanks for your reply.
