Do you need to cut steel, aluminum, or stainless steel? If you’re cutting threaded rod, steel plate, corrugated metal, structural steel, grating, solid bar, or tubing, then you need the best metal-cutting saw blade you can get, the M.K. Morse Metal-Cutting Blade, to save you time and money in the long run.
People who routinely cut metal in their jobs—including welders, electricians, iron workers, roofers, and maintenance techs—need a saw blade that cuts fast, smooth, and cool, said Peter Heenan. He’s the Vice President of Marketing for The M. K. Morse Company, which produces the highly popular Metal Devil CL metal-cutting saw blades, designed for cordless circular saws.
Here, Heenan offers his advice for choosing the best saw blade to cut metal:
#1—Get a thin kerf blade.
The thinner the kerf of the blade, the less vibration during cutting—which means faster cutting overall.
#2—Use a “fast cutting” blade design.
The faster and more accurate the cut, the more pieces you can get done per day. Look for a model that makes quick, accurate cuts in a variety of metal shapes and angles.
#3—Look for good gullet design.
A good gullet design can actually make cutting safer—by minimizing flying dust. “For example, with Metal Devil blades, the metal chips are collected by the saw,” Heenan said. “It’s virtually a spark-free environment.”
#4—Find high-quality tips.
Look for saw tips that cut smooth, with very little burr. This will save you time finishing afterward. “You want a nice clean finish that’s cool to the touch, so you can pick the metal up right away and work with it,” Heenan said.
#5—Make sure it’s designed for cordless saws—if you’re using one.
You’ll get more cuts per charge if you use a blade designed specifically for cordless saws. Not only does the job get done faster, but you’ll stop fewer times to recharge or swap batteries.
