    Hardened Dremel blades

    Howdy folks, looking for some reinforced blades to go on my dremel thingy, for some various cutting up duties

    Did some investigatory work ont he case yesterday and wore through 3 non hardened blades cutting through 20mm's worth of mild steel on my Chieftec case. This work was done on the PSU (which is looking pretty srubbishrubbishrubbishrubbishy at the mo, thanks) but with the intricate pattern I'm going to cut out of the side of the case I'm going to need some seriously havy duty blades to cut through the 1mm thick steel of the case.

    I've heard B&Q will have something like this, adn there is a B&Q in oxford (long walk away though!). Anyone know what to look out for and how how much they'll cost each?

    Am I better off trying to cut out anything major with a jigsaw and a good blade?

    A jigsaw is a better idea on steel cases. They are quite expensive the dremmel blades try buying the packs of 20 they are 10 quid or so from memory

    From B&Q, the reinforced blades are like £15 for 6 if my eyesight didn't fail me :/

    B&Q were expensive last time i checked for some.
    Go down to your local market, there is bound to be a workmans store that sell this kind of stuff - and it'll be half the price.

    I got 1 with my dremel clone, lasted quite a while .
    I then used some cheap ones - one which exploded and caught my eye
