Question

rotozip or get all separate


i am in a dilemma whether to spend less money and get a rotozip RZ20 (http://www.amazon.com/Rotozip-RZ20-4...0993010&sr=8-2) or spend more and get a dedicated jig saw and a dedicated cutout tool.

as a rule in life, i do not believe that one thing can do it all. the more something tries to do, the worse it performs at each.

i need it for moderate jig saw operations and cutout jobs like installing a new power outlet in a baseboard without taking it out.

I think you are correct
One is better for some than the other
It depends
Sometimes either will work
Sometimes one is much superior
Sometimes I use both

I'd suggest a simpler, less expensive Roto
(trust me, you'll add the add-ons you think you might use later)
And a good Jig

Generally I get very little use out of my jigsaw in remodeling. Cutting out sinks is just about it.

I use my RotoZip all the time, and it will do many things a jigsaw will.

Get both!

If you get the RotoZip, definately get a variable speed model.
