Product Description

Craftsman 12 V Lithium-Ion Dual position Multi-Saw is a part of the new compact line of Craftsman tools called NEXTEC. These tools are lightweight and powered by a 12 Volt Lithium-Ion battery for enhanced performance and longer shelf life. The compact design allows the tool to be used in tight spaces and stored in small areas such as a drawer. The innovative design of the dual-position Multi-Saw allows the tool to be used as both a reciprocating saw and a sabre saw while delivering up to 2000 SPM. For additional blade control, an electric brake has been added to quickly stop the blade once the trigger is released. The Multi-Saw features a soft grip handle for increased comfort and control and an integrated LED work light that illuminates the work area. For convenient adjustments, the blade clamp is tool-less, making it easy to change blades quickly and an on board hex key adjusts the shoe as needed. The 30-minute quick charger charges batteries quickly and features a charge indicator that visually indicates the charging status. The Multi-Saw Kit includes: Dual position Multi-Saw, 2 blades, 1-12 V Lithium-Ion Battery, 30-minute charger, and manuals.

useful and compact

Having already owned a few of the Nextec tools I figured I'd pick this up after debating it for  a while.  I haven't used it a lot and I don't forsee it replacing my jigsaw but it does have its place.  I recently used it to cut off some rusted out cotter pins I needed to replace.  I wouldn't have been able to use the recp saw on this and a hacksaw would have taken forever.  I found this saw to be super useful and quick.  I would see one of the keys being purchase good blades for it, as with any saw the better the blade(s) the better it performs.  For the price I don't think you can go wrong with this handy little saw.

I would recommend this product to a friend.

the saw is not variable speed, it's off or else 2000 spm.

I love how the batteries charge so fast: 30 minutes, which is great speed for lithium batteries; I don't think they charge faster than that in any application.  The tools are really lightweight compared to their regular sized counterparts, which makes them very comfortable to use.  However, the saw is only one speed, which I cannot tolerate.  I bought this combo kit that comes with the saw, a drill, flashlight plus the charger and batteries.  I think I will return it though.  It seems like the designers figured that people who use the heavy duty tools and are used to variable speed wouldn't ever buy these, but I did, and I think that's a big mistake on their part.  If they had only done that one very simple thing of making it variable speed, than this package would have been really awesome, but without, it just won't do.   I'm so disappointed because I was really anticipating using these mini tools, but now I won't get to.  Oh well.   Better luck next time.
