From the Front Lines of Metal Cutting

Just a few weeks ago an Air Force Base was preparing planes for destruction.  They were looking for a 9″ (229mm) angle grinder to remove depleted uranium counterweights from some transport planes in preparation for sending them to the scrap yard.  The current grinder did not have sufficient depth to cut out a 3″ (76mm) deep aluminum support bracket.  When our sales rep showed up with a 9″ M.K. Morse Metal Devil Saw he was met by a skeptical group of technicians.  They graciously allowed him to give it a try.  After 20 minutes of getting into full PPE gear (Tyvek suit, respirator, gloves, and fall protections) and being lifted 50 feet into the air, he was ready to cut.  With the right saw for the job, the cut took a lot less time than getting into the gear.  Record time as a matter of fact!

The Importance of Being Cool


For higher torque, lower rpm circular saws, MK Morse Metal Devil™ metal cutting saw blades in different configurations are most appropriate to handle different materials, such as steel, thin steel, aluminum, stainless steel, and steel studs. Important differences between blade configurations are the number of teeth on the blade, shape of teeth, and the carbide grade. Even differences engineered into the plate help provide the longest life possible from both the blade and saw and minimize user fatigue.

These metal cutting circular saw blades provide better cutting solutions than those traditionally used. Metallurgy of the carbide tips means there is minimal heat transferred to the inner plate. These blades move through metal up to five times faster than traditional cutting methods with minimal noise, sparks, and heat. You can touch the metal the instant the cut is finished, it’s that cool.

Morse Metal Devil saw blades will work on any professional quality circular saw. However, they reach their full potential when used on specially constructed metal-cutting circular saws. These metal cutting saws utilize unique motors allowing them to maintain higher torque while cutting through tough metals. Metal cutting saws are also safer to use since they prevent chips from flying and have special chip collection chambers.

The combined effect is a more productive day.
