Want a toe-kick saw like the Crain No. 795 featured yesterday, but don’t want to shell out serious dough? For the hobbyist who may only use it once or twice over the course of a kitchen and/or bath remodel, the Harbor Freight model might work great — especially since (as reader Evan pointed out) it’s marked down to $40 right now.
Of course, TM reader Jeff offered another suggestion: this might be a good item to rent at your local tool rental center. Still, I love the idea of owning my own. And I’d bet $40 is pretty close to what you’d pay to rent one. Hell, it’s regularly priced at only $70. HF offers replacement blades for $5, too.
Standard disclaimer: we know it won’t last as long as the Crain. But frankly, if you’re using it so much that you’re worried about it lasting for several remodels, then you won’t mind paying $300 for one, right?
