sawzall blade for bones

post #1 of 9
Thread Starter 

Anyone use one for pigs?  Obv not as good as a meat bandsaw, but sometimes in a pinch I've seen it done on the tv.

 

I asked the girl at home depot which blade type to use on bones and she ran away

Back when I was in the operating room we used an oscillating saw for bones. I think a sawzall will get gunked-up. Yes gunked-up is a medical term.

That's why I think the right type of saw teeth will help. They vary from giant ones for wood, to tiny for metal and everywhere in between.

I got mine for home repair stuff, but I'm always happy with multitaskers. Just curious if anyone has already tried. Of course id sterilize.the whole thing / have separate blades. Wouldnt want metal filings in my pork after all!

I worry more about bone fragments that metal filing.

 

I use a hacksaw.  For splitting spines... an axe and rubber mallet.

Regular bi-metal blades work fine and I didn't see any paint on my bone ends.  You have to wipe cuts down regardless  They do make bone blades for sawzalls btw.  We used mine on a deer last winter and it worked fine.  Get a blade longer than you think you'll need and buy several.

I use mine with a wood blade to cut frozen turkeys in half.
