Just a quick review of the lennox steel cutting circular saw blade. I ended up buying this for a job site as we had about 12 pieces of 10x2x1/4 rect. tube to cut. Anyhow we cut that some 4"x 1/4 square tube and a bunch of angle iron and it's still going strong. Cuts with minimal sparks and not a bunch of crazy shrapnel. I needed to cut my skid plate down to size at home so I borrowed it, crosscut 24" of 1/4" plate in about 90 seconds. We always use Stick-kut on all our stuff so maybe that's helped it along. Nice piece I paid about $60.00 at Lowe's South San Francisco but I have seen them on Amazon in the $40.00 range. Mark
I asked about blade thickness because I recently needed to slit 1" sq tube. I coulda machined it but really wanted a faster method, so I set up a convoluted fence on my welding table. Thing is I needed a .125" wide slit *minimum*, and both of my metal cutting circulars (Milwaukee corded and cordless) use blades that are .071 to .075. I wound up using an abrasive blade in a regular wood circular because the abrasive blade was .125. It pretty much sucked and I had to be extra-aware to keep the blade from flexing/wandering.
I have cut around 20 linear feet with this myself and have experianced no kick back at all. I put stick-kut directly on the blade, on steel it will smoke for a second but seems to help. We use it on hole saws and even abrasive wheels. It's not magic but seems to extend the life of cutting tools. Mark
I have cut a full 4x8 plate into 8inch squares with the Milwaukee saw. and it was fawking awesome. The blade and the work were cool to the touch, the chips however are blue as they come off the metal... Works like a dream.
