    Only have used bi-metal blades.

    I have never used anything other than bi-metal blades (Dewalt and Milwaukie). You can get them in a hack-saw blade type with the varying off set but don't remember what the tpi is but likely 18-24 tpi range. One thing I do not do is to use the saw rest/stop against the work but free hand it. If you are steady and use a light pressure you won't have a problem.

            I agree with fun. I have a porta-band and a sawsall. My first choise usually is the porta-band but it can be bulky and just won't fit in some spaces. The sawsall would be my choice if I could only have one. Also they are about 1/3 the price of a porta-band.

              Pick up a almost new 6 amp sawzall and two packages (5 each) of some Milwaukee bi-metal blades in a nice handmade oak case at an auction Saturday for $55. Used it yesterday for the first time - tis very nice. My next purchase will be the portaband. The Northern Catalog (used for benchmarking) shows two differant Milwaukee portabands, one with a case and the other is a two speed (with or without case, I dunno..). Basically similar in price. Not sure which is better. Where I can find the porta-cable to compare? Thanks for all the help!
              Lord, it's going to be another hot one today... 95+ & 99.9999% humidity.
