  • Air powered recip saws

    Anyone using air powered recip saws? What brand? Do they perform as well as electric? Cost?

    We're carrying an air powered hack saw which I assume is the same as the air powered recip saw your asking about....

    It's a great little saw, It uses standard hacksaw blades, although we specify cobalt type blades for durability, etc.

    It's a faster cutting speed than the recip saw. We still lubricate the blades to assist with cutting, though.

    In total, it's approx 300mm long, without the blade and can be held in one hand. (Two hand operation, still) It's really easy to control as it doesn't jump around and get away from you when cutting, unlike the recip saw with inexperienced operators.

    Noise level is probably comparable, but it's "different" to a recip saw. (Don't really know how to describe it!)

    I'll track down other info when at the station next.....

        Lutan,

        Can you use a more aggressive blade in that like something along the lines of a recipro. blade or will it accept only the hacksaw blade?

          This saw only takes the hacksaw blade....

          We haven't had any troubles cutting anything yet. (We've only cut various metals, not wood.)

          One good feature is the fact that you can slow down speed of the blade to cater for various metals such as stainless steel, etc.
