EAST LONGMEADOW, Mass., March 30, 2005 — LENOX, a leading manufacturer of premium power tool accessories, hand tools and band saw blades, today announces the introduction of its new line of carbide-tipped metal cutting circular saw blades. These blades are designed to boost productivity and efficiency for professionals cutting common metal materials like angle iron, sheet metal, pipe or steel plate found on virtually every jobsite and professional workshop.
The new LENOX circular saw blades are made from industrial-quality titanium carbide, providing professionals with a faster way to cut metal and extended blade life. The precision ground carbide allows the blades to make a smooth, clean cut with less sparks and dust than abrasives, making the need for secondary grinding operations obsolete. After the cut, the work-piece is cool to the touch and ready for immediate handling.
"Dedicated saws engineered to run these blades are relatively new to the industry, so contractors unaware of this technology use other tools that take much more time to complete the same cut," said Reid Cheatham, product manager, LENOX. "Many professionals currently using abrasive chop saws, portable band saws, reciprocating saws, hacksaws or torches are looking for a faster way to cut metal. The new LENOX metal cutting circular saw blade satisfies this need while giving them the quality of cut they want and the extended life they require."
The new LENOX metal cutting circular saw blades are available for steel, aluminum, and thin steel cutting applications designed for cordless, hand-held and large diameter dry-cut metal cutting saws in diameters ranging from 5-3/8" to 14". These and other premium LENOX power tool accessories are available anywhere professionals purchase LENOX products.
