Apparently Black & Decker’s been making reciprocating saws for some time, but I just recently came across one — and it looks like a pretty decent deal. For around $80 you get an 8.5A saw with variable speed (0-2,400 strokes per minute), a six-setting speed limiter, and a three-position pivoting shoe.
It’s the RS600K, and it also features Black & Decker’s “Quick Clamp” tool-less blade change system. (After using one tool-less setup, I’ll never go back.) Other details include a 1-1/8″ stroke and a soft rubber handle grip. In “kit” form it ships with a storage case that also holds blades.
