Lenox 7-1/4 Inch
About Lenox 7-1/4 Inch Blades
Circular saws are a trusted, versatile tool used in carpentry, plumbing, demolition, and more. They can cut through wood, metal, and plastic. Of course, the type and size of the blade play a significant role in your saw’s performance.
A 6-1/2” blade is a common type used by professionals and at-home DIYers. However, the 7-1/4” blade is also an excellent, if often overlooked, option.
The 7-1/4” blade creates a deep cut. It’s useful when working with thick lumber. Also, a 7-1/4” allows you to make a 45-degree cut, which a 6-1/2” blade isn’t capable of doing.
Plus, larger blades last longer. They don’t overheat as easily as a smaller blade because they have slower rpms. Preventing overheating helps keep the blade from warping over time.
