Sawzall / Reciprocating Saw Blade Tourture Test for Demo

Somehow we missed this when it came out a few months ago in Fine Homebuilding Magazine. It is a very nice detail comparison of 15 major demo blades for wood. Looking at price, TPI, cut speed, cuts, flexibility, etc it really goes deep with each blade. It was pointed out to us while having a discussion about metal cutting blades in Garage Journal forum which is obviously a different kind of blade but though it was a good read anyway. For the full story check it out here at Torture Test – Demolition Blades

You can also purchase a wide variety of demolition and other Sawzall / Reciprocating Blades from the fine people at Ohio Power Tool.

Bosch MX25E vs Fein MultiMaster Oscillating Tool Showdown

 

For about 2 years now, ever since the patent ran out on Fein for its oscillating multi-tool, we have been hearing about how Bosch was going to come out with corded tool that was going to beat Fein at their own game. Well that day is upon us with the introduction of the new Bosch MX25EC-21 ($149, Ohio Power Tool) and the MX25EK-33 ($194, Ohio Power Tool) kits. How will the Bosch stack up against the Fein specificall as well as the other popular oscillating tools from Rockwell & Dremel? See more pictures in this Photo Album of the Bosch vs Fein.

Bosch Power Tools at World of Concrete 2011

 

Every year we get pretty excited about the World of Concrete because of all the new product releases that happen just prior or during the actual show. It also has some really cool and interesting attractions to see, if you are into concrete at least. The most exciting new Bosch concrete product had to have been the new Brute BH2760VCD ($1599, Ohio Power Tool) which we had compared to the Makita and DeWalt previously.  Here are a few others to look for that are either out now or headed to stores in the near future. Also check out this photo album for more pictures from the show.

Bosch Reinvents Concrete Chisels with R-Tec World of Concrete

 

One of the new products you can check out at the outdoor Bosch booth at the 2011 World of Concrete are the new R-Tec Concrete Chisels. Bosch is replacing its SDS-Max flat chisel and pointed chisel with new more powerful chisels which offer the professional user considerable advantages. The R-Tec reflective element (cone shape in middle of the chisel) increases material removal rate by up to 15%. This is achieved by converting the recoil energy into additional impact energy, therefore considerably increasing the material removal rate while reducing vibration. Both chisels also have a self-sharpening cutting edge, which enables them to achieve a constantly high material removal rate. It also saves time by eliminating the need for time-consuming chisel resharpening.

The new SDS-max R-Tec 1” Flat Chisel HS1936 ($15, Ohio Power Tool) has a cutting edge twice as long as that of a standard 1” chisel, which doubles the material removal rate. On the new SDS-max R-Tec Bull Point Chisel HS1935 ($18, Ohio Power Tool) the “blast spin” action of the optimized cutting geometry enables continuous work without jamming in the concrete. At nearly the same price you will pay for any other 16” chisel these are definitely worth consideration.

Rockwell BladeRunner RK7321 Full Review & Tool Cabinet Build

 

A few weeks ago we did a quick post on the new Rockwell BladeRunner ($179, Amazon), from our limited exposure at the STAFDA tradeshow (see here). Since that time we were lucky enough to get one to test out and provide some feedback. Additionally we got to test some of the accessories available and at the end of the day this tool along with several other Bosch Power Tools would end up in the well deserving hands of TheMetroSchool.org.

Bosch OIS Oscillating Tool MX25EC Exclusively at Home Depot

The long awaited corded Bosch Oscillating Tool MX25EC, which has been talked about for several years now and may finally be the answer to a suitable rival for the higher priced Fein MultiMaster is final available and you can even get it in time for Christmas! Apparently Bosch has struck an exclusive deal with the Home Depot on the MX25EC-21 ($159, HomeDepot.com) so if you want it within the next 60 days it looks like you will be ordering it online on their site. This tool is NOT available in local HD stores and neither in-store or online sells any of the Bosch OIS accessories. Possibly the softest launch we have ever seen on such a highly anticipated tool, we had to call and order one ourselves to make sure it was for real. It is also a huge slap in the face to their network of the Bosch BSS Dealers they have been working to set up all year long, who were promised exclusive launch on new Bosch Tools, specifically this one.
