After the third attempt at shipping the blades to me, they finally arrived today, March 2nd. Since they were originally shipped January 5th, it has been a long wait.

The package arrives, blades seem to be well packaged in individual cardboard sleeves, with the teeth wrapped by a rubber tubing, and the blade inside a plastic sleeve.

After removing the packaging, and upon closer examination, each one of the blades has a build up of rust, not just the light surface rust that can be wiped away, but a thick coating of the teeth and the relief cuts.

I really don’t know why I was thinking I was going to get a quality blade for under $30.00.

Will put one on my saw this afternoon and try it out, but at this point I think I may as well have flushed $168 straight down the toilet – don’t see how I can rip an expensive sheet of material with a rusty blade and not have any staining or damage occur.
