LENOX® Introduces DIAMOND™ Reciprocating Saw Blades

    Jul 05, 2007

    EAST LONGMEADOW, Mass., March 14, 2007 — LENOX, a leading manufacturer of premium power tool accessories, hand tools, torches, solder and band saw blades, announces the introduction of the LENOX DIAMOND Reciprocating Saw Blade specially designed for cutting cast iron.

    The new blade cuts through cast iron three times faster than carbide grit reciprocating saw blades. This dramatic performance improvement is made possible with the use of industrial diamonds brazed to a narrow blade edge. The LENOX DIAMOND Reciprocating Saw Blade′s patent pending design increases the speed of material removal on a cutting application that is notorious for its resistance to conventional separation methods.

    "The LENOX DIAMOND Reciprocating Saw Blade is the first effective blade for cutting cast iron," stated Web Shaffer, Sr. Product Manager, LENOX. "Most blades require several blade replacements for one cut. The LENOX DIAMOND can cut through cast iron with only one blade which provides users with a much lower cost per cut. The strength of our new blade also produces a straight, clean cut that is much better for joining new cast iron pipe together."

    In addition to providing fast, clean cuts, in-house laboratory tests have concluded that the blade will last up to three times longer than other grit blades currently on the market.

    Ideal for cutting cast iron, the LENOX DIAMOND blade is also able to cut other tough materials, including fiberglass and ceramic tile, clay pipe, stone, brick, marble, plaster, cement siding board, and laminate flooring.

    The LENOX DIAMOND reciprocating blade is available at plumbing, electrical and construction distributors nationwide.
