About EAB: EAB Exchange-A-Blade is the largest power tool accessory remanufacturer, recycler, and distributor in North America. Established in 1976, EAB is a pioneer in the development of exchangeable power tool accessories. The Exchange System allows customers to buy a product and return it after use for credit towards their next purchase. This provides dealers with a ready-made loyalty program and their customers with significant savings.

Carbide saw blades received in exchange are remanufactured in Canada to new condition – validated by rigorous quality control and testing. Products that cannot be remanufactured are recycled, thus diverting construction waste from landfills. The company also promotes reduced and environmentally sustainable packaging.

Principal product categories include: saw blades, abrasives, drill and SDS bits, hole saws, oscillating tool accessories, router bits, jig and reciprocating saw blades, screwdriver and impact bits. Their three distinct brands— Exchange-A-Blade, RazorBack, and Stay Sharp— are sold in over 2,700 retail stores across North America and online by participating retail stores.
