    Just bought a Milwaukee Super Sawzall – the 15 amp saw. Had a great price at HD and online for a little cheaper, so HD matched it. Just did a few test cuts and seemed to run really smooth and had plenty of power. I was debating this and the Makita, but since the Milwaukee was available at my local store and no one had the Makita, Miwaukee won out. I had thought about the Bosch units, but I need to cut lots of steel and I want non-orbital cutting for this and the Bosch units are only orbital machines.

    I do like the the Makita has a lock-on switch – not many of the other saws have this feature and I would guess it is a safety thing, but I thought that was one thing lacking on the Milwaukee. I do like that this saw is assembled in the USA. Not manufactured in the US, but at least some factory workers put it together.

    I’ve had sawsall that have a orbital or straight switch. The Makita AVT is a great recip saw.

    What is the orbital switch? I have never had this feature on a recip saw.

    I agree. The AVT just blows through anything in its path…and the vibration control is the best I’ve ever experienced. It’s an expensive saw, but totally worth it.

    It’s a switch on the side of the saw that changes the sawing motion from simply straight back and forth to an elliptical motion…same sawing motion that a jigsaw uses.

    The new Bosch recip that I got has constant orbit so you can’t switch back and forth but it seems to cut really quick on metal just the same. I’ve always gone with the orbit on wood and straight on metal with other saws I’ve used but the Bosch seems to work well on both with the permanent orbit mode.

    You’ll really like that saw Tool Junkie. The 15 amp is a beast so if it gets pinched…….hold on cause you’re going for a ride! Lol.

    If my super Sawzall ever goes out I will be getting the Makita. So many have said it is just as powerful but a bit more of a pleasure to use.

    Honestly I don’t use my super Sawzall very much since I got the Milwaukee Fuel Sawzall.

    I think you’ll find that the blade life won’t be as long when cutting metal. When I forget to turn off the orbital action while cutting metal, I’ve noticed that my blades burn up more quickly. I think the teeth are being “forced” downward into the metal which prematurely dulls them.

    I could be wrong, but it seems like this is true on my particular reciprocating saw (15A Makita AVT).

    Finally found two of the masonry/brick jointers that I have been looking for in the Kraft Tool catalog. One is the “double end grapevine jointer” and the other is a ball jointer. I’ve never used the ball jointer but am willing to give it a shot.

    I was using my DeWalt Emglo compressor today. It takes a lot of Amps but runs good and over 10 years old.

    @utopia78,
    I’ve never seen the ball jointer before.
    The double ended one is just a newer take on the jointers that have been around for decades.

    I hear good things about those Emglo compressor’s. They do seem to last a long time.

    @jponto07 interesting Jon, is this only on corded models, or on both corded and cordless, I know my older Bosch cordless Sawzall does not have that features,

    I’ve got an older Dewalt one and no way to control how the blade cuts.
