chop saw abrasive blades

Anybody do much metal work? Talking about those 15 amp chop saws... I usually end up buying the 14" x 7/16 thick, 1" arbor blades from ace- about $8 apiece. Just wondering if anybody knows where I can get them in bulk, to get the unit price down a little bit???? Like boxes of 100 maybe?

Anybody know where they are made? I have a box of Rockwell saber saw blades... a customer of mine worked at a factory in Ct that made them for Rockwell. They turned down a RAISE... which was conditional on the workers reducing the amount of "scrap" they made in the shop. (Increase productivity) The "defective" saw blades cut just fine... guys were taking them home by the lunch box full. When my saber saw died, I made sure my new one accepted the blades.

You might try the metal suppliers, they usually have take off blades that they can't use any more. I had a box of about 40 that I got from one company. Most were about 11 inches in diameter.

Good thinking! They end up with them when they are constantly cutting something big and eventually the blade isnt big enough to cut all the way through. Just make sure you don't use any that are cracked or something, they will fly apart and do a lot of damage to you or your shop.
