The company has added a new blade to its application-specific SAWZALL® blade line: the Ductwork Blade. The blade has been engineered to specifically address the frustrations encountered when installing ductwork takeoffs. This application is commonly done with a hammer and screwdriver to make an access point, and a variety of directional hand snips to complete various cuts, but use of the ductwork blade eliminates the need to carry those tools, lightening up a user’s tool belt and speeding up the installation process, the company said. Engineered with a Pierce Point tip, the ductwork blade plunges into sheet metal with ease, said the company. The tapered profile design allows the blade to make both radius and square cuts, accommodating any type of takeoff installation.
