This is my favorite tool. The reciprocating tool is not used to build stuff, it is used to tear down or destroy things. Its a fun tool, well actually they are all fun, but I love this one. A reciprocating saw is probably not going to be at the top of a list for tools most often needed, but when you need to destroy anything, it is the most handy tool in the world. Milwaukee is the king of the reciprocating saw, the Sawzall.
A reciprocating saw is a simple tool that has a motor that drives a blade back and forth. There are two main power types of saws, a corded and cordless saw.
Orbital Action – Orbital action refers to the blade movement. A typical reciprocating saw moves back and forth, while an orbital saw not only moves back and forth, but it also moves up and down. Orbital action will help cut through material, except for pipe, a lot faster and easier. Make sure the tool has an adjustment that allows you to change the setting from orbital to a straight cut.
