A unique articulating reciprocating saw has been added to Porter-Cable's line of cordless 12 Volt MAX Compact Lithium tools. The ClampSaw (PCL120CRC-2) has a clamping shoe at the blade end to hold workpieces in place, helping to reduce vibration caused by cutting small-diameter objects like copper and plastic pipe, metal strut, threaded rod, and wood. The variable-speed tool weighs less than 3 pounds and has a three-position handle that folds to just 9-1/2 inches for increased versatility – a handy feature when cutting in spaces too small for full-size recip saws. The tool includes an LED work light and comes with two lithium-ion batteries and a 30-minute charger. Price: $129. 888-848-5175. www.portercable.com.
