    Re: Ridgid Reciprocating Saw - Is this a good tool?

    If you can work this correctly it looks like Amazon has the Milwaukee 6509-22 Sawzall priced at $89.95 with FREE shipping. I'm not sure what it takes to get it for this price but people that deal with Amazon on a regular basis should be able to help. Also, they can get a great price on a nice Sawzall. This is the base model, but they do cut. I have had mine for about 2 years and really like it. A model with longer strokes and orbital action is faster in ruff wood cutting, but in metal cutting you really can't use orbital action normally.

      I bought the Milwaukee 6509-22 Sawzall last Setember for $111 at www.hechinger.com. It's still going as strong now as it did then. Great tool.

            FYI: The Milwaukee Sawsall just got more affordable: $99 Model 6509-22 at HD. Kit consists of case,blades and 10 amps,

            I tuck an allen key under the rubber boot for the bolts to move the shoe on the 18v model.
