Saw blades break away after use

DEWALT® has made available its BREAKAWAY™ Reciprocating Saw Blades designed for cutting galvanized pipe, copper pipe, conduit, metal studs and other metals. The saw blades feature a 2-blades-in-1 design that enables users to break away a used section of the blade and reinsert the unused blade section into the saw to maximize blade use. BREAKAWAY Reciprocating Saw Blades are available in 6- and 9-inch lengths—the 6-inch blades break into 4-inch blades said to be ideal for cutting materials up to 1 inch in diameter, and the 9-inch blades break into 6-inch blades said to be ideal for cutting materials up to 2 inches in diameter. The saw blades also feature a thick kerf for durability and a 14/18 teeth per inch variable tooth pattern for optimized cuts in a variety of metal cutting applications.

Redesigned harness protects workers at heights

The Journeyman FLEX harness is available in aluminum and steel models.
