Must be recip saw day. Came on site today looking for some opinions about the small ones. What been experience with the $39 HF unit? Or should I spend $130 for Poter-Cable PCL120CRC recommended by This Old House? Have a job in very tight quarters.

I'm not a big believer in HF power tools. Got burned a few times, but a long time ago, so things might be better now. They do have good warranty, so if willing to keep bringing them back, might be worth the trouble.

But a big factor is, will this be used regularly, or a one time job?

If it's for one time or occasional use, I would go for the HF.

I picked up a Milwaukee Hack-Zall battery run small reciprocating saw with 2 batteries and charger for $120 CDN. ( That's about $84 US before tax). It won't replace a Sawzall for big jobs, but it is incredibly handy for small jobs and tight places. It takes regular Sawzall blades, and will do a lot of cutting before you have to change batteries. One of my all time best tool investments. unc

Steve, just to be clear about the Harbor Freight warranty, they'll usually keep replacing a bad tool within their normal warranty period, or give you a refund (which people in their reviews have described, but I haven't ever done myself), but the extended warranty you purchase from them is a one use thing: When you replace a tool under the extended warranty, that's the end of the warranty. You can buy a new extended warranty then. Otherwise, I'm not sure if the regular new tool warranty applies to the replacement tool. Harbor Freight policies are very good about some things and very bad about others.
