I have had success re grinding blades with a zip blade. I have put coarse teeth in old blades. Plaster sand is hard on the blades and usually put a groove in the middle of the blade.
Good luck.

Try the Bosch carbide tipped blades. They may not be that much cheaper to buy but they should last several times longer.

Do they fit the Vecturo directly or do you need an adapter?

I've used the Bosch carbide blades on a Fein cutting 3/4" thick plaster walls. Their fantastic.

Google Bosch OSC114C to see if they make a version for the Vecturo.

I have found the Bosch blades to be well build, but I need a adapter for my supercut.
They are a little cheaper than the fein blades.

I just checked and Bosch does make a OSP114C StarlockPlus® version and a OSM114C StarlockMax® version.

I just don't know if these fit the Vecturo straight-away or if they need an adapter.

I think you need this adapter.  I'll give bosch bits a try.  Thanks

 I don't know if Imperial blades work or not but if they even do avoid them at all costs. The weld that attaches the blade to the shank is not durable enough. I've had several blades come on done on my fein multitool.
