Default Free Lenox T2 Recip Blade

Here you go

A free Lenox T2 blade and free shipping too! Lenox makes some good stuff so. If you have never tried anything Lenox here is a good chance to test drive one.

I could not get the form to work correctly until I watched the short video. It was worth it. These are good blades.

Yeah, that was a challenge to navigate but I did it, I think.

Thanks!

I've used many of their blades slaying vehicles in salvage yards. I like their hole saws too, and I'm not kind to either. I averaged about two blades to cut a car in two, but that's because the vehicles were lying on dirt and still usually had interiors.

I've never had much luck with their saw blades. Used the snot out of their hole saws though. Their saw blades tend to break on me about 1/2" from the holder. I've had good luck with Milwaukees though, at least they'll bend (and can be bent back into shape) instead of breaking.

I signed up for a freebie though, might as well

I couldn't get past the name and address page so I guess I'm out of luck.

It will not let you fill out the form until you watch the videos of them cutting 8 cars in half or cut the nose off the airplane with the same blade. You caan fill out the name and address page but you must watch the short video before it will let you advance on the form. I had the same problem.

I'll see if their blades work any better than the ones I've been using. I don't know what other "Stuff" they will be sending with the info they have. It might be like Christmas or more junk mail.

Hopefully they just send the blade. One thing Dubby said is correct. They are more brittle than a Milwaukee. That's the other blade I use as well. But they stay sharp way longer. That is the trade-off. I think it is the type of metal they use. But it is worth the price you will pay for one. I like a company that thinks enough of their product that they will give one away free thinking that if they get one in your hands you will buy more.

Thanks for the link, I have one coming.

I have heard great things about Lenox blades, from I think it was LW. They are not available at the normal retail outlets, HD etc. I didn't want to go to the trade outlets as I would get hosed because I don't have an account. I don't mind paying for good stuff if I know for myself they are good.

I have paid a stupid price for a Freud Diablo Carbide tipped blade and it is awesome, it flys through wood and it zips through nails. I would like to see this demo against the Lenox.
