A reader wrote in about sale pricing on this Dewalt jab saw, model DWHT20540. Thank you Mosh for the tip!
I took a quick look, and it is indeed very attractively priced. At this time, the Dewalt jab saw is priced at $6.71, and with an “in stock December 1, 2020″ ETA.
Comparing prices, Acme Tools has matched Amazon’s sale pricing, but you have to pay shipping fees if your order amount is under $199. Home Depot has the Dewalt jab saw for $12.
The Dewalt jab saw features a rubberized handle grip and induction-hardened saw teeth with 3 cutting edges.
Dewalt says that the design has aggressive cutting action that cuts up to 50% faster than traditional jab saw tooth designs.
The 6” jab saw blade is designed for use on drywall, plastic, and other building materials. Its tip looks to be shaped for piercing into materials to start cuts.
Prime subscribers get free shipping, others get free shipping as part of a $25+ order.
Mosh was hesitant about whether this is a good deal or not, but it looks to be a solid deal to me.
For another upgrade option, you might also want to look at the Klein Tools folding jab saw/drywall saw, priced at $19.97 and with extremely positive user reviews on Amazon.
