Jam saw

Anyone got a Jam saw or undercut saw I could borrow for a couple of weeks or that you want to get rid of at a reasonable price? Doing some housewide flooring

Not exactly what you are asking for, but all you will ever need. And will do may more.

I don’t have a lot of luck with those oscillating tools on real wood. They’re awesome for drywall. What’s the intended use?

Stang, then you have the wrong blade. There are a plethora of blade options for different applications (wood, metal, drywall, carpet, etc). I have been amazed at the usefulness of this tool in my renovation projects. You are right, it is not as fast as a jam saw with a circ saw blade on it. But it absolutely does the same job, and can do more detailed work that a circular saw blade can not do. Heck, I have taken it to all my old painted shut windows and they are all now functional again.



I personally have the Dewalt linked below (bought it before I started working at Milwaukee Tool) and love it. I bought my father-in-law the M12 Milwaukee version that I linked above and he uses it seemingly nonstop. I have also bought bulk off brand blade from Amazon (linked below) that get the job done. Blade price is probably the biggest drawback to the tool IMO.

I ended up taking Joel up on his suggestion and bought a 4 amp Oscillating tool because I figure I could use it doing more stuff around the house. Cut most of the door faces already and that thing works like a champ

Are you shaving the bottom of trim to make room for thicker flooring material?

Yes. She had that peal and stick cheap linoleum when she bought the house and we are going back with a Composite Vinyl in its place and it's 8mm think
