DeWalt DW 938 reciprocating saw

18 volt reciprocating saw DeWalt DW938

close up of DeWalt DW 938 18 volt reciprocating saw blade lock down clampMarco and Dirk brought up a good point on yesterday's post in the comment section about proper blade choice.

The blade in question was a multi-purpose wood and metal, and yes it would have done better with a pruning blade.

A portable reciprocating saw like the DW 938 would be handy for cutting PVC pipe in hard to reach places like under a sink.

I do like the easy unlocking mechanism for switching out blades. Our Skil reciprocating saw requires a small wrench to loosen and tighten blades, which is a real pain when that wrench is nowhere to be found.

You can also get metal blades for cutting through old plumbing pipes, that is before they rust into dust for you.

/no never had that happen ;)

I haved used some wicked "demo" multi purpose blades with coarse teeth on all sides of the blade (think like a chainsaw bar). Forgot the brand name.
