Bending blades and marring finishes while trying to cut inside corners on shelves and walls with a reciprocating saw sucks.  Thankfully Paws Off Tools got wound up enough about it to make an attachment that dramatically mitigates the problem.

Their adapter offsets your standard recip saw blade, keeping the tool out of the way for flush cuts.  The adapters tang chucks right up in most recip saws, so it’s easy to install and remove. 

As far as we can see, there’s no downside: contractors can rip it up and make quick flush cuts without having to drag along another tool.

Street pricing starts at $35.

Update: TM reader Harry mentions in comments that Paws Off makes a concrete-cutting recip saw blade “as well as a few others that tap into the unrealized potential of that already versitile tool.”  Rock on!

    That company also makes a concrete-cutting recip saw blade, as well as a few others that tap into the unrealized potential of that already versatile tool.

    I could have used this at least a half-dozen times in the past year. It’s now on my Amazon wishlist.

    I completely removed the left side of my circular saw to cut the 1/2″ expansion gap against the wall on some hardwood flooring I installed. Originally the intention was to use a biscuit jointer, but I burned it out and had to go to plan ‘b’. This looks like a handy alternative.

    Damn! I just spent an hour and a whole lotta sweat with a Japanese pull-saw that I spent 30 bucks on. Now you post this!

    This thing actually looks pretty easy to fabricate. Could have used one today.

    Don’t wast your money. The idea is good, but it just doesn’t hold up. For fifty bucks more you can have the whole saw. Delta makes a saw that does the same thing. I bought it after I broke this in the first five minutes I used it. It does warn you, but it still broke way to easy in my opinion. The Dewalt has worked well for a couple years now.

    I use this to cut fence boards free, since pounding them off just breaks them and turns them to fire wood. With the the Dewalt, I can run against the board and cut off the nails.
