Back in my record store days, we had a regular customer who would always ask the same three questions of every CD: "Do you think I'd like this?" "Does it jam?" "Does it got a lot of guitars on it?" The day we played him Gong it was like we'd finally solved the riddle. "Listen to that GUITAR!!!"

While other manufactures have similar "reciprocating" saws, Sawzall is the trademarked brand name of Milwaukee. The name is at risk of becoming generic like Kleenex. Long ago, Milwaukee began branding their electric drills "Hole Shooters" but that name has not become common parlance for electric drills.

So anyway, used a Milwaukee reciprocating saw and about 8 blades to open that sucker up.

@Phillippe Bastille- Black and Decker own the Dewalt Brand...a storied manufacturer that made industrial Radial Arm Saws, more often seen at lumber yards than in a home shop, but they did make smaller models for the small contractor. The company was purchased by Black and Decker and the brand name was applied to a line of small electric hand tools - drills, grinders and sanders. And Black and Decker also purchased the Dustbuster hand vacuum cleaner line and General Electric Toaster Ovens

@Phillippe Bastille- I had to look that factoid up- being unaware of the Pentair name, but familiar with the tool brands under its umbrella. It's interesting, particularly as Black and Decker was considered to be a quality tool manufacturer, that the company would be more recognized as a parent company than as a manufacturer of their own tool line. The whole tool industry has changed as more non professionals do various trade works in their homes. The price of electric tools is priced about same in dollar amounts as they were in the 1970s.

My advice is, when you have the urge to staple, count to ten and then use a paper clip instead. You can always undo a paper clip. A staple can't be undone without leaving permanent damage to the paper.
