I believe the 3.0 kit deal has been removed online, might be the same for the 2.0

Does anyone think that cutting frozen lamb with hackzall and a new blade is a bad idea ? And what would be alternative ?

The problem is the paint on the blade more than anything else. If you can get a 'food safe' blade for the hackzall, it may work well but I wouldn't expect it to be too accurate in the cuts.

Order your lamb already cut and wrapped?

Sorry dude, I didn't mean to be a saucy snark, but my Dad was a lamb fan and that was how he purchased it in the fall from the lamb farmer.

As far as the cutting......get an unpainted manual hacksaw or find an unpainted hackzall blade.

Other option is let it thaw a bit and find one of those old style electric knives that were a staple at Christmas dinner thirty years ago.

These are two options that have worked for me in the past.

I am planning on getting the $120 Costco frozen ones. They are usually 12kg so I think it's a good deal. So no ordering face to face. I can probably fit it in my freezer in one piece, but I would rather cook it afterwards in pieces vs whole.
I was thinking of sanding all of the paint off my Milwaukee blade. Probably using factory sand blaster would be the best, although the blade would probably loose some sharpness this way.

I saw (pun intended) some Diablo 9" or 12" pruning blades at HD clearance the other day. I think I paid $5 for it? The online paint that is on it is the Diablo logo.

That's an insane price for a pruning blade. I would have grabbed 5 or 6 at that price.

Find these locally to you or order from cabelas. If you’re using a hackzall, make sure to pop the blade through a bag so you keep your tool clean. These blades are pretty good at keeping the meat bits flying forward rather than at you.

I mean, I guess if you don't want kids...
I believe these are to satisfy the state of California by putting a warning on almost EVERYTHING.

Was anyone able to recently hop on this deal in the Montreal area ? I only found out about this now, don't want to waste time going around HD to HD to be refused.

Just went to the Boisbriand location. They still have 2 single pack batteries and 1x duo pack 3.0.
I grabbed the multi tool( scans 129, its at 109 on website so they price matched)
And the 90* drill.(129)
With the 2 3.0 batteries (scan at 169).

So I just want to see if I understand something. If I buy the 3/8" ratchet I would get a free 2.0 battery. Can I then return the battery? If yes, what is the return amount on the 2.0?

If stores are out of the 2.0's do they seem to be subbing in 3.0? Or are you just SOL?

I guess this expired yesterday, but I just noticed my local store got some more 3.0 battery packs. I wonder if it would still work as the sign was still up yesterday.
