Arcus. Transform your circular saw into a circle- and arc-cutting tool with the Arcus Cutting System (at left). The 71/4-inch blade is contoured to achieve curved cuts. The system’s compass guide attaches to most circular saws and allows the system to cut arcs from 30 to 54 inches. Used freehand, the saw blade can cut 15-inch radius or larger arcs. The Arcus wood blade is suitable for wood or composite material; a masonry blade is also available. 502.495.2959. www.arcusblade.com.
Duo-Fast Construction. A new line of 20º Round-Head Paper Tape Collated Nails (at right) is now available in brite and hot-dipped galvanized. The nails work with all major manufacturers’ 20-degree round-head framing nailers. A proprietary manufacturing process and patented tape design give the collation a stiffness that resists strip collapse and corrugation, the maker says. The high-performance adhesive provides strength and rigidity that withstands hot, cold, and wet weather, and the tape shears easily, which means less jamming in the tool. Nails come in smooth and ring shank, and are available in 23/8- to 31/4-inch lengths. 888.631.2020. www.duo-fastconstruction.com.
