Reciprocating Saws

Shopping for a reciprocating saw, but don't know what you want? Start with how you'll want to use it: for daylong projects or use just in your workshop, a corded model might be best. For toting from site to site, choose an easy cordless option. Then, think about for what materials you will be working with and compare models based on amps. Planning to work on lots of different materials? You may want to choose a saw with many speeds to choose from, giving you better control. Reciprocating saws are great for almost any project, from HVAC to plumbing, electrical to basic construction. If you're shopping for saws, start with Sears. We have everything you need, from jig saws to miter saws.

Reciprocating saws are tough enough to handle most any job

When you need to tackle a big project, you call in the big guns, and when it comes to saws, the reciprocating saw is a big gun. It's the first tool you'll look to when you have any heavy-duty demolition work to do. It'll cut through metal, masonry, wood, plaster, drywall, fiberglass, stucco and composites. But it's also perfect when you need to cut a well-defined opening in a fragile material, such as drywall. That makes the reciprocating saw a key power tool to have for construction, HVAC, plumbing or electrical jobs. You'll appreciate that you can use one to get into tight spots other saws just can't get into.

A reciprocating saw is only as good as the blades you use, though, so when shopping, purchase the right one for the right job. And while it's tempting to choose the one that's the lowest price, sometimes you'll be money ahead to spend a bit more on a blade. The least expensive ones can dull quickly, meaning you'll buy blades more often. Then, in the long run, you've spent more money on blades by choosing the least expensive. Did you know you can chat online with a sales representative to ask questions? If you're not sure which blade to purchase, let us help you find the right equipment.

The number of teeth on a blade is an important consideration. The number is measured in teeth per inch, or TPI. You can purchase a saw with as few as three teeth and as many as 24. A blade with fewer teeth will cut through material quickly, but you'll end up with a rougher edge compared to using a blade with more teeth. So the opposite is likewise true. If you have a blade with 24 teeth, for example, it'll take you a while longer to cut the material, but the edge will be smooth. That's why a high TPI is crucial when cutting metal; you don't want metal to have a rough edge. The number of teeth isn't the only consideration; also take into account the width and depth between the teeth, or the gullet size.

You'll find blades made out of several materials. Carbon steel blades are inexpensive and bend without breaking, but they can dull quickly. Choose carbon steel for cutting relatively soft materials such as plastic and wood. Another option is the high-speed steel blade. The teeth are not as bendable and break more easily, but they far outstrip the competition in durability. If you purchase bi-metal blades, you get the best of both worlds: the durability of high-speed steel and the flexibility of carbon steel.

We have corded models, from such manufacturers as Craftsman and DeWalt. They range in power from 6 to 15 amps. Most have variable speed controls. Depending on the model, you'll find features including tool-less blade changing, bonus blades and the option to switch between orbital and non-orbital mode. In addition, we offer cordless reciprocating saws. Remember to also look at our selection of various corded power tools, circular saws and spiral cutting tools. Sears has all the tools you need to tackle any DIY or woodworking job.
