I just recvd an order of Olson metal cutting blades, #5, and had quite
a few of them break just trying to tighten the thumbscrew. In the past
I have used about 2 blades to cut a particular pattern, and ended up
using 24 Olson blades to accomplish the same amount of work. In the
past I have used the blades that came in an assortment from
Dewalt(DW3948) with no similar problems. I do not know who makes
Dewalts blades, but I know not to order metal cutting blades from
Olson if they are that brittle. Suggestions...?
I order my metal cutting blades from RioGrande by the several gross. I get
the Laser Gold($21/gross). The cheapo blades made in India and thereabouts
are, IMHO, worthless. I use a jeweler's saw to cut 18 gauge sheet
metal(steel) and 16 oz copper. I tried using my scroll saw once but it was
just TOO EXCITING with all that jumping around and enough heat that I
couldn't hold on. Their website is www.riogrande.com but right now I can't
seem to access. Their phone is (800)-545-6566
