I’m with NiteWalker. Unlike clamps, I think one can have too many blades, finding oneself spending too much time changing them trying to save a nickel. That’s why we have combination blades. Quality in a combination blade equals clean cuts in lots of materials.

Wear a valve-type mask, fit it well, and off you go.

David asks about a Teflon. Does anyone else think, as I do, that this is a scam? When you have so much clearance because of the larger tooth, the blade is never touching the material. I never have to clean anything off the bodies of my steel blades—all the goo is on the carbide tips.

Perhaps the Teflon coating is like whatever you do to keep the leopard seals away. “See, there’s nothing on this Teflon! It’s working!!!!”
