A reciprocating saw can be used for everything from precision cuts to demolition.

Working at a slower speed, the reciprocating saw can cut through drywall. At faster speeds the reciprocating saw can cut through wood and even nails and screws embedded in wood. It can also replace a chain saw for cutting lumber or pruning trees.
Because the reciprocating saw works in a back-and-forth motion, it's hard to cut straight lines with it. To make a straight cut, attach a fence to the work piece to guide the foot of the saw.
