Constructed from Grade 80 high strength low alloy steel (HSLA), this metal Saw Shoe Assembly is used
on a cordless reciprocating saw. The shoe is .085” thick material and the bracket is .135’ thick material. Using our metal stamping capabilities, we produce both stampings, and after in-house deburring, they
are transported to our assembly department.
Once in assembly the two stampings are riveted together in two locations using a 1/4” diameter rivet. After assembly, the parts are sent out to our E-coat processor.
Upon return, parts are packed in specially designed egg-crate type packaging to assure defect free
shipment to our customer.
For this project Herd maintains tolerances of +/-.004” and meet the JIT requirements of our customer to
ship approximately 250,000 units annually.
