Similar (More or Less): jigsaws

Reciprocating saws are commonly used in construction and demolition projects where you need fast and flexible cutting abilities, but not millimeter precision.

They are similar to jigsaws, but much larger and usually rest in the user's hands rather than on top of a workpiece.

Settings

The reciprocating saw can be operated with different orbital action settings: 0 - 3. Depending on your workpiece, you need to use different settings:

Step 0:
Thin or hard workpieces (e.g. metal plates, steel)

Step 1:
Non-ferrous metals, hard wood, plastics

Step 2:
Soft workpieces (like insulation)

Step 3:
Soft workpieces (e.g. soft woods)


Saw Blades

As most power saws, the reciprocating saw supports different sawblades. The Bosch PFZ 700PE is using SDS-Sawblades.
