Milwaukee has added two application-specific Sawzall Blades to its lineup. The Ductwork Blade is for installing takeoffs on sheet-metal ductwork, with a tip designed for plunge cuts and a tapered profile for radius cuts. The Drywall Blade is aimed at plumbers and electricians working on remodeling jobs. At 21/2 inches, it’s long enough to easily cut holes in 5/8-inch drywall, but short enough to minimize the chance of hitting pipes or wires. It has teeth on both edges so cuts can be made in either direction. A five-pack of Ductwork Blades costs $20; a single Drywall Blade goes for $7.
