The Basic Types of AEG Reciprocating Saw

An AEG reciprocating saw is often an extension of an electric table saw. It works by cutting wood or metal using a circular motion, instead of a straight cutting motion. A reciprocating saw can be used to cut any kind of material. Still, for cutting wood, it uses a saw blade that rotates around its centre and rotates back and forth to produce a repetitive cutting motion.

This kind of saw was first invented in the early twentieth century. Its name comes from the word “reciprocating” because it uses a reciprocating motion to cut the material. An AEG reciprocating saw has many uses and has been made into several types over the years. A common type found in most homes is the table saw.


Most table saws are powered by electricity, but some models are battery operated. A reciprocating table saw functions by pushing a blade around while turning a wheel to keep the blade in place. The force needed to move the saw around a circular motion will push the blade around a circle on the table and cause it to create a parallel motion with the saw’s motor. It takes about two minutes for a reciprocating table saw to complete a circular motion. This makes it useful for cutting different materials like wood, metal, and even plastic.


Although the most common type of reciprocating table saw is a table saw, it is also made into an electric drill. When used this way, it is used to cut small items like nails and screws. However, when it is not being used as a drill, it is commonly used to cut large pieces of sheetrock or plaster. Some table saws are designed to use as a band saw as well.


Another type of AEG reciprocating saw, which is also known as a reciprocating drill, is similar to a table saw. Still, instead of pushing a blade around, it rotates the arm on the drill to get a circular motion instead. This makes it useful for cutting various materials like pipe, concrete, and insulation. The only difference between a table saw, and a reciprocating drill is that instead of pushing or pulling at the wood or metal on the outside of the piece, it moves across it instead. Professionals commonly use these saws because they require much less maintenance.


There are other types of reciprocating saws, but the ones listed here are the most common. Some of these saws are sold as stand-alone devices, and others require a table saw as part of their kit. In most cases, you can buy a table saw with reciprocating tools in their box.
