Can the blade of a metal cutting circular saw be used in a conventional circular saw?
The manufacturers of the blades say no. But they would say that, wouldn't they? They want you to buy their "special" metal cutting saw. However is there anything actually different about these saws other than the blade? Is the speed different or is there some other design feature which allows them to cut metal safely? Have you ever used a metal cutting blade in a conventional saw (and lived to tell the tale!)
Yes I have and obviously, I'm still here. The main difference in the blades is the number and size of the teeth on it. As long as the dimensions of the blade are proper you should be fine. I was a contractor for 15 years and the only exception I can think of would be if you're cutting a particularly thick metal and even then, I can only see your efforts being futile and you spending a lot of money on blades. Sawzalls use different types of material blades as well as circular saws. Not sure why they would say that less there's something missing from this equation.
