We’ve covered a way to turn your reciprocating saw into a power rasp, but that was just a single use tool.  With the Reciprotools adapter chucked into your Recip saw, you can power accessories like stainless steel or nylon brushes, a cleaning pad, rasps, and files.

The the double tang adapter works with most reciprocating saws. Once you’ve inserted the adapter into the saw’s chuck, the adapter provides a quick-change hex chuck for holding the accessories. The hex-shaped shank on the accessories allows you to position each tool in six different orientations.

Pricing for the adapter starts at $16 and accessories start at $6 a piece.

    Great tool when you cant use a bench grinder definitely. worth buying saves allot of time compared to the alternative of allot of elbow grease with a hand tool

    i own a stupid amount of saw zaws somewhere between 6-7, and i never use them. i find them to be tool with one purpose – Destroy. maybe this could be a good use for them. although it reminds me of news story recently where a guy mounted a rubber phallus on one to “pleasure” his wife, and naturally things went array. i think my perferred choice is just collect enough saw zaws and build a statue with them

  3. @jeffrey immer:

    You’re right about the destroy part. Anytime I try make a cut in something I care about I can never get the damn saw to cut straight. But they are great for taking stuff apart!

    At least for my Dewalt, the power of the saw combined with the hair trigger equals lack of control. The fact that you’re pulling the trigger on the same line that the saw is going back and forth makes it really hard to control speed. Somebody ought to come up with a sawzall with a separate speed control knob from the trigger.

    Milwaukee sawzall has a dial for max speed control, pull the trigger and the variable speed won go past the preset. That is the corded heavy duty version, at least before they were bought by the Chinese.

    I think some folks expect too much from their reciprocating saws. While I believe that Milwaukee pioneered this tool – calling theirs a “Sawzall” it is not an all-purpose do everything powered hand saw.

    We come to most jobsites with at least 1 reciprocating saw (we have both Milwaukee and Makita tools in both corded and cordless variety, at least 1 jigsaw (Bosch barrel-grip corded and/or Makita cordless), and at least 2 circular saws [e.g. Skil 77 (with or without big-foot ) and Makita BSS611]. We often bring a trim saw (e.g. 4-1/2 inch Porter Cable worm gear saw – or Makita BSS501 cordless). We have a few old (alas no longer produced) Bosch (1584) inline jig saws which are much more controllable for inside-cabinet cutouts. We are also trying out Ridgid (R3030) one-hand reciprocating saws and the Milwaukee (2420-20) Hackzalls. If we are doing a lot of pipe railing work – we will bring a portable band saw. If we are doing metal roof decking we bring our Evolution X230 metal-cutting circular saw. If we’re doing kitchen or other wood flooring – we bring a Crain 795 toe kick saw and 820 undercut saw (although we use Fein Multimasters a lot for this operation). Fiber-cement siding is getting some play in beachfront work we do – and we have bought a new Ridgid R3400 to try – although we have been mostly using Kett shears for this work.

    None of these substitutes for our stationary saws (miter/chop saw and jobsite table saw.)
    On some big sites we will even bring a cabinet table-saw, and a stationary bandsaw.

    As most of you noted, the big reciprocating saws are used mostly for demolition work.
