Anybody use Imperial Oscillating Multi Tool Blades? I have a Bosch tool and have used Bosch blades almost exclusively. I’m wondering about the Imperial blade quality.

I have not used those. Project Farm on youtube (“Which [X] is better? Let’s find out!”) did tests and showed the EZARC brand came out on top.

Thank You for mentioning EZARC. They’ve gotten good reviews. I’ll have to give them a try.

I started using cheapies bought on Amazon.
They actually work pretty decent for the first few cuts.
I like a fresh blade anyway when I’m cutting base or crown. And if I’m butching something, I don’t mind burnin one up if need be. Perfect for cutting receptacle cut-outs in the backs of cabinets.
I thought for the price it was worth a try.
I still have a bunch and figure it’s better than paying 28.00 for 2 or 3 blades. YMMV
I do keep a new set of the more expensive blades, in case I feel like I need a better blade.
Here are links to three different packages that I bought.

Those are premium blades. I’ve used their blades and the carbide grout cutter. All were outstanding performers.

They are pricey though.

Good prices.
I’ve used the Harbor Freight cheapos for dirty work. I also have an HF cheapo tool which doesn’t want to die…..use it for the dirty demo work especially drywall.

I was going to buy a Bosch blade on Amazon and they showed the Imperial blade which was about half the price of the Bosch.
