    1. Are reciprocating wood blades all the same shape at the fitting end when it comes to putting it into your machine?

    2. Can you put a 150mm wood blade into a machine which came with a 100mm one.

    The main brands share compatibility, regardless of blade length.

    Blup, great to know with thanks.
    Too many cheap dodgy blades out there that I am sure out people off using R saws (or simply make them dangerous).

    If you are doing demolition where it may be necessary to cut through metal as well as timber (or where there may be embedded nails, screws or bolts) then cheap blades simply don't hack it - they either blunt immediately they hit a piece of metal, or if they are really thin they'll just end up buckling or concertina-ing under the strain which is why Toolpak/Silverline are only any good for cutting-up thin matchboard bunny huts! A decent demolition or rescue blade will never do that. They are thicker (so stronger) but lower-powered saws can struggle with them. Best generally available brands I've found to date are deWalt and Milwaukee (Hilti are also good but hard to come by)
