Im absolutely floored by the performance of the next generation @diablo_tools thick metal cutting blades.
I personally cut through this boron carbide shackle lock, in about 15 seconds. Let this be a reminder to everyone that padlocks are no longer secure in this day and age.
The new blade has a number of improvements over the previous generation blade. The carbide composition is optimized for cutting hardened materials with reduced tooth fractures.
The braze process and the height of the shoulder behind each tooth has changed to resist tooth loss from shocks encountered in a cut, such as hitting a weld.
I was impressed with the first generation blades, apart from some carbide fractures when hitting welds or folded metal. The new blades seem to have eliminated that issue.
