    I'm sick of buying new blades every few months, I notice there is an American product called sharp hog or sharp pog which is a series of grinder disks with spacers mounted in a cordless drill.

    I cant find it on ebay but I think I'm going to try a dremel disk and see how I get on, surely I can use them for rough floorboard cutting if nothing else?

    have you looked at saxton blades fairly good and not too expensive
    blades are consumables
    they need to be cut at the correct angle to work efficiently
     
  4. I'd try a needle file before anything else.

    Hi all

    The task is general abuse from a plumber with a 350w fein, cutting off old skirtings, cutting through copper pipes (hitting wall while i cut), plunging into chipboard etc.

    keep your worn out blades separate
    cut to within 3mm off the wall or obstacle then finish with the old blade
    wood blades work well on copper

    A number of the blades I've used appear to be induction hardened rather like hardpoint saws - and we all know that they cannot be resharpened at all

    Obviously not vegans, then, and posh, too. What's wrong with dock leaves I ask you? Or hadn't they been invented back then?
