  • jig saws

    I have been working on the trans mount for my coupe & needed more metal cutting blades. I replaced my jig saw 2 years ago as the old one
    burned up. this is the U style blade saw. I was shocked that no one in the area has U style blades. I did ask about this & the help at all 3 stores
    said the U type blades & saws are discontinued.
    a quick internet search found a few and a bit more selection in wood cutting but not enough to keep me going to my satisfaction.

    due to the lack of available U style blades, I returned to Lowes & bought a new T style blade jig saw by Dewalt.

    now I`m starting to feel like a dinosaur............

    Wow, I haven't bought any blades for mine in ages, sounds like I may not be able to. I don't understand discontinuing a style when there are millions of them still out there. Just another way to screw everybody over and make more money I guess.....

      I hear you Keith. It seems like I spend a lot of time looking for unicorns.

        well I have never seen a live unicorn but I guess there is always a chance...........

        Edit = after some more thought on the subject, I have never seen a dead unicorn either ......

              If Mcmaster-Carr doesn't have it, it can't be bought! They never cease to amaze me with their inventory.

                For sure, and my last order arrived in two days, which is hard to believe in Maine. Only Amazon equals their shipping time sometimes, but mc is more consistent

                  as I stated I did find some on the net. what bothers me is the blades will be discontinued/ out of production & and
                  some point will be unavailable. so I took the hit & bought newer equipment.
                  i guess I am to old school & think if it works why not use it.
                  oh well, such is life.....

                    I hate to throw out stuff that still works just because they quit supporting it. Like Windows 7. Gonna have to upgrade my other puter for that reason....
