    What are your thoughts on Diablo consumables?

    I am pretty impressed with their cast iron blades, cuts faster then Lenox diamond blades and cheaper.

    They also make Bosch Starlock OMT blades.

    They are owned by Bosch, yet Bosch makes consumables too. Do you ever see Bosch delegating all the consumables to Diablo?

    or will they keep making two lines?

    I have used the carbide metal cutting reciprocal saw blades in the past with good success. they really last, pricey, but they get the job done.

    I have also used their abrasives and router bits. I think their stuff is pretty good.

    As for both making consumables, I think it will continue. Many other manufacturers make them under a lot of different manes.

    Haven’t really used many Diablo blades , just the odd recip blade , it seems to last fairly long , but I did notice that the other day I saw the Diablo spade bits you mentioned that looked exactly like the bosch ,
    Honesty I really didn’t know that Diablo was owed by Bosch ,
    I have heard great things about the small circular saw blades from them.

    Diablo is owned by Freud America, who is owned by Bosch.

    Diablo is said to be the only tool company that produces it’s own carbide, allowing them to make application specific blades by optimiziing the carbide for different types of blades but I do not fully understand what that really means LOL.

    Ah okay , I’ve been seeing plenty of publicity for the new core drill bits for concrete , or the 4 point rebar “eating bits ” or something like that , guess they are trying to get plenty of sales.
    They do look like decent quality

    I very much doubt that there are blades made of cast iron.
    Maybe carbide-tipped blades that cut cast iron? Among other things.

    That’s what I mean, when I said “cast iron blades” I meant blades to cut cast iron pipes. It’s typically either carbide or diamond blades.

    I have used the Freud and Diablo saw blades for years and really like them. I have not tried the new bits but am looking forward to it. We go through a lot of the 3/16 bits for concrete screws.

    The Bosch recip blades are pretty good. They don’t tend to bend as easily as a bunch of older Milwaukee blades I have. Once they bend, they’re not much good for most jobs even if you try to bend them back straight.

    Diablo is a Bosch subsidiary a lot of Bosch’s technology is being used in the Diablo blades and bits. Think of Diablo as a premium Bosch blade.

    I just remembered I bought some Bosch recip blades and I really like them. Your right once the blade bends it isn’t much good for any job. I pretty much toss the blade when this happens.

    I still can’t find blades that last long if I cut roots with it. The blades runs through dirt, sand, roots and a few cuts and it’s shot.

    That’s for sure , I don’t know what it is when cutting in and around dirt /earth , but it definitely shortens the life of a blade

    Same goes for chainsaw blades. You just touch the dirt with using them or cut too claose to the ground at the base of a tree where there is often dirt imbedded at the base in the bark and they dull instantly.

    True. A chainsaw chain doesn’t dirt what so ever. A little dirt will take the edge off the chain.
