Curved reciprocating saw blade LENOX introduces a curved reciprocating saw blade that lasts up to twice as long as the standard straight blade. The Gold Power Arc curved blades are designed for wood and metal cutting, as well as demolition and extreme heavy metal cutting applications. Proprietary technologies, such as the T2 technology and a titanium coating, help disperse heat, allowing the blade to enjoy an extended life. The family has four blades, each available in 6-, 9- and 12-in. lengths. Circle 28 on inquiry card Portable work system CENTIPEDE TOOL launches a portable work system in two models.
