The drill doctor comes to call
JLC ’s We ran a group of eight cordless reciprocating saws through some tough testing — and generally liked what we found: more power and longer run-times than expected.
We sent two JLC editors to the show to research what’s new in the world of tools and equipment. Here’s the report from Dave Crosby.
We sent the new reciprocating saws out into the field to see how they performed. Here’s how a group of veteran remodelers rated the saws for a variety of tasks.
Toolless blade clamps and smooth, vibration-free cutting make these tools easier than ever to use.

We scouted the 1999 National Hardware Show for the tools we think will make you more productive in the coming year.
Our tool editor looks at both single- and double-compound models with an eye toward accuracy, durability, and ease of use.
We tortured these heavy-duty, bimetal reciprocating saw blades to find out how well they could make a plunge cut, shear off 30-penny spikes, and cut through an asphalt-roof assembly.
