Looks like a good deal. Not sure about the quality of blades. I would appreciate any input on that. Considering this over current $19 Milwaukee deal

Meh, these are moderately good blades, but do not hold up to metal. I went through one and half of these blades to flush cut a piece of 2" galvanized pipe.

If you want a bunch of blades to destroy go with these. https://toolant.com/products/amoo...s9EALw_wcB

Yep they are crappy, but you get 50 of them and I guarantee 50 crappy blades last much longer than 8 medium quality blades.

Edit: BTW Free shipping over $35. I added a box of 100 nitrile gloves for $9.99 and checked out for $42.98 for 50 blades and 100 nitrile gloves.

I'll echo this. I have Dewalt just about everything including my initial set of oscillating blades. When it came time to replace them I took someone else's advice on one of these posts and bought a cheap 50-pack on Amazon. To your point, they are inferior, but the gap is nowhere near big enough to justify the huge gap in cost. I just burn through one and replace it without any thought.

His testing was spot on, as we have been using various EZARC carbide blades that outlast any of the typical tool brands ---with some by a large margin. Todd was using the carbide 801113 [amazon.com], but the carbide 801103 [amazon.com] is also great for metals. For general purpose wood and plastic, rasping, etc., with the occasional metal like a nail, the EZARC bimetal 18pc set [amazon.com] does a great job for the money.

You can buy cheaper on Alibaba and other direct import sites, as well as sales from the EZARC site [ezarctools.com] (that has discount codes and free shipping at $25) as we sometimes do, but you lose whatever perks some have from Amazon that does have the occasional sale. Maybe set up a notice on the 3-C's to not miss those sales, but the 3C's does not catch any coupon discounts to reflect today or actual price history.
