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!
