Hats off to the people who came up with the idea in the first place. If I'm not mistaken, it was Fein Tools.

thats the brans I have for the tool and some blades, but I found the generic blades work almost as good at a fraction of the price, so now I just buy generic blades..

As long as quality is not sacrificed, I do that anywhere I can, even with household products like razor blades.

Ive noticed the generic blades hold up quite well, and at 1/10th the price...of name brand I say I get 80 % use out of generic compared to name brand, and if I have to destroy a blade cutting something nasty, I dont care as it was only a few bucks..so im my opinion..the generics are well worth the money..
heres the generic

heres the fein blades, BIG difference in price..not much on out performing generics..

I do the same, the other week when I had to cut tile to access the tub escutcheon the guy exclaimed the materials were expensive, go ahead file a complaint to argue the bill if he wants but the diamond blade on the grinder and a new 15$ sawzall blade ain't free.

Sometimes when I see someone might cause problems I write everything down in details instead of just writing (solder) I write : sand paper, flux, solder, propane, welding blanket, teflon, pipe dope etc.

We charge a 5$ consumables fee on almost all bills. We try to charge out as much as we can but that 5$ fee makes up for a lot.

I have one of these tools, I got it when I was replacing some flooring at home, it worked great.
I don’t really use it for work other then if I need to cut out the back of an existing cabinet to access the pipes.

I only use mine a couple times a year, but when I do, it's a frickin life saver.

100% agreed!

It was great for the flooring, cuz the new floor was about 1/4” higher then the old, it made cutting the door frames/trim super quick and easy.
