Dewalt has come out with new carbide-toothed oscillating multi-tool blades. It’s about time!
A few years ago, we were commissioned to do some oscillating multi-tool blade testing. Bosch paid for the testing, and so I imagined they had a good expectation about what I would see. Still, I was quite surprised to see how clearly and vastly superior their carbide-toothed oscillating multi-tool blades were. Dewalt and Imperial blades just didn’t hold up when tested cutting nails.
Carbide is much longer lasting than bi-metal blades, whether cutting into wood, nails, or wood with nails. Thus, it is hugely welcome for us to find out that Dewalt has come out with a new carbide oscillating tool blade.
The new blade, model DWA4250 is designed as a general purpose hard materials cutting blade, and should last far longer than their regular blades. It has a 1-3/8″ cutting edge, and Universal Fitment mount for use in most brands’ oscillating multi-tools.
According to Amazon, the new blade is made in the USA.
Here’s the downside: The blade is a little pricey, at $27 to $29 each, or $50 to $52 for a 2-pack.
Hopefully Dewalt will come out with a bulk pack that drops the per-blade cost a bit further.
