    With the specs on the saw blade, 2"dia 3/8hole 132 teeth, check with a machinery supply company for slitting saws. I don't know if the pricing will be better or not but worth the try.

    Anyone have the specs, such as thread size, length etc. A link may be helpful as well if someone already ordered one.

    Someone had that information in a thread a couple years ago, but I am having trouble finding it.

    I suggest that you get ChuckBuster involved in the group buy. If you don't know it, he works for a tool and die distributor in the Detroit area. He can get the best prices on everything of this sort.

    If you were a distributor:
    15397-J156 2" blade .020 thick, 3/8 arbor hole, 24tpi, 152teeth $13.81

    This one seems to be the same as the Amazon one $8.36 +$15.14 shipping (goes up to $16.20 after 12ea):

    Amazon $21.40 +shipping unless Prime member or over $35 (one left as of today):

    Harbor Freight $9.99 (no coupon):
    http://www.harborfreight.com/pack-of...els-42805.html

    How about it? I can foot the initial cost of 10-20 of them from Malco Saw and mail them out when I get them, divide the total between us ($9.87 if 10 $9.17 if 20) then add actual shipping from me in TN, can't be more than a couple/three dollars to mail.

    BTW, I don't think this is an ad per se (not trying to make any $, just save some), but if it goes against the TOS here let me know. If enough interest maybe we can start another thread or move this post.

    I would be in for (2) blades at the ~ $10.00 each range. My application would be 5/16" copper tubing for .308 jacketed bullets; and cutting off .17 brass case necks for swaging heavy .224's .

    I'd like to get a good blade or two. The HF saw has worked fine for me so far and when (if) it quits I'll buy another. They just don't cost that much. Gp

    I can't remember the thread of the caps crew I used. I just fished around til I found the right one. Every time I order some tooling I add a couple 100 ct boxes of cap screws so I have just about everything I might need. The easy way is to take the factory screw with you to your local Ace Hardware and try it in that little plate they have there and find what matches. I think it's probably a metric cap screw.

    I will make it official on Open Forum Thread, for a variety of reasons I am unable to participate further in any way on these blades. Glad we found a product that works. Hope you guys are able to work something else out. Sorry I am not more help.
    Have a good one

    Ok, so far three have shown interest, with a possible 8 blades spoken for. Let's do this, post definitely numbers under this post. I'll edit this message with names and qty requested. If only 8 are spoken for I'll order 10, if at least 15, then I'll do 20. And to be clear, these are the Malco Saw blades, not the F&D ones.

    ------------------------------------------------------------
    Let's make the cut off on Thursday, midnight, I'll order first thing Friday. And BTW, multiples should save on shipping from me.

    I'll take (2) For sure.

    Perhaps establish a cut off/completion date for "Group Buy"?

    The P/N for the saw we are using from F&D is: 15397-J156
    The specs are: 15397-J156 Jewelers Slotting Saw
    Outside diameter:2"
    Thickness: .020"
    Hub diameter: 3/8"
    Teeth per inch: 24
    Teeth per blade: 152

    Whatever other blade you are looking at should have those same specs.

    Yup same exact specs, knowing how some factories work, this may even be the same exact blade with different logo.

    Not likely. F&P was started by a Vietnam VET, and everything they offer is 100% made in USA. The owners son runs the company now. Their quality is impeccable. Will stand back and see how these Malco blades do. Chuckbuster, who has been in the biz for a LONG time tells me that until this thread, he's never even heard of Malco.

    Well, I checked the USA made part before offering. And seeing how long they have been in the biz, their quality should be GTG.
    Malco Saw Co., Inc. is an American manufacturer specializing in circular saw blades for various industries. For over 75 years, we have provided our customers with quality USA-made products in both high speed steel and solid carbide.

    Quality has to be better than HF made in ???? exported from China.

    I have to ask. Has anyone used something such as a 14 inch metal cut off saw for this job? Abrasive blade rather than teeth and those saws shouldn't even notice going through a brass case. Just wondering. I don't have a saw and the HF 2 inch one gets such mixed reviews, makes me wonder if a bit more money for a better saw makes sense. Or if better blade should make the HF 2 inch good to go.

    Scrap.... because all the really pithy and emphatic four letter words were taken and we had to describe this way of getting casting material somehow.

    When the 300Blk became popular, there were many saw types used to varied degree of success. But for the ease and cost, the HF saw was just the better value. So much so that a few even imported some of those saws directly from China to sell on eBay when HF looked like they would discontinue theirs.
